Withdrawal or Leave of Absence

Financial Liability

When a student registers, it is understood that he or she will pay, in full, all charges assumed at registration. Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a refund. It is understood if you are registered for a course you are fully participating in each course, or you will drop it.  It is the student's responsibility to drop any course(s) they are not attending.  You will not be permitted to receive your grades, transcripts, or diploma unless your student account is paid in full.

Should you decide to change your schedule in any way or stop attending, you need to fully understand your responsibilities as well as the financial liability that you may incur as a result. **Before you make any changes to your schedule (add, drop) or decide to stop attending class(es), you must meet with the Financial Aid and Student Accounts Departments to fully understand what financial liability may occur as a result.**   

Official Withdrawal

A student officially withdraws from the university when he or she completes the appropriate forms and follows the procedures outlined in the catalogue. A resident student must also withdraw from university housing. The following tables will be used to determine refunds for tuition:
