Refunds, if any, are based on the date and time of receipt of a student’s withdrawal, regardless of registration date or attendance. All students who wish to withdraw from a course or courses must do so in writing. It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw from courses or a “Failure to Withdraw” grade of “F” will result. Nonpayment or non-attendance is not a withdraw.

Students may drop a course without notation on their academic record during the published add/drop period. A withdrawal after the published add/drop period requires the student to obtain the signature of the faculty member, undergraduates require their advisor signature too. A “Course Withdrawal Form” is available online and must be submitted within the published withdrawal dates as outlined in the academic calendar. Winter and Summer sessions do not have an Add/Drop period due to the accelerated format.

Choosing to withdraw is a serious matter which may adversely affect a student’s status, financial aid, veteran benefits, and degree progress. Students should consult with their course instructor, advisor, and/or respective office prior to dropping or withdrawing from a course.


Physician Assistant Program

A student wishing to withdraw voluntarily from the University must confer first with the PA Program Director. Refunds of tuition and instructional fees, if any, are made on the basis of the date and time of receipt of a student’s withdrawal. Non-payment does not result in withdrawal from the University. Students who officially withdraw from the University after the first day of the semester will receive a designation of ‘W’ on their transcript.
