Officially Withdrawing from a Class or Classes

Depending upon the date of withdrawal, one of the following situations will apply:

•A student who officially or unofficially withdraws from all classes before the first day of class will be refunded the total tuition and other institutional charges. The “first day of class” is the first day classes are offered within any term configuration, including, but not limited to, full terms, split terms, mini-terms, and weekend terms.•If you officially process a withdrawal from the college after classes begin, but before the end of the first week of classes (five calendar days from the term's class begin date), you will receive a refund of all charges.



• A student who officially or unofficially withdraws completely on or after the first day of class but prior to the end of the third week of class will be refunded according to the withdrawal date, as follows: 

        Withdrawal during first week 75% of tuition and other institutional charges 

        Withdrawal during second week 50% of tuition and other institutional charges 

        Withdrawal during third week 25% of tuition and other institutional charges 

        Withdrawal after end of third week No refund

For calculating refunds during the fall and spring sixteen-week terms, a “week” is defined as seven calendar days. Refunds of tuition for terms shorter than sixteen weeks, such as summer terms, mini-terms, split terms, and weekend terms, will reflect a prorated week based on the number of days in the term.

An administrative fee not to exceed 5 percent of tuition and other institutional charges or $100, whichever is smaller, shall be assessed for each withdrawal within the period beginning the first day of class and ending at the end of the third week of class.

•If you officially process a withdrawal from the college before the 60% point of the term/semester has lapsed, college scholarships will be removed from your account for the term/semester; check with the source of the scholarship or any Non-Title IV Aid for more information (admissions, athletics, foundation, and departmental). The Office of Student Financial Services will recalculate your Title IV Aid based on the Federal Return of Title IV Formula. You will be responsible for any balance.

•If you officially process a withdrawal from the college after the 60% point of the term/semester, you will not be required to return any Title IV Aid you received for the term/semester. However, college scholarships will be removed from your account (admissions, athletics, foundation, and departmental); check with the source of the scholarship or any Non-Title IV Aid for more information. You will be responsible for any balance.
