Withdrawing from the University

As of the first day of the semester, dropping all classes requires student to withdraw from the University. A percentage of the tuition will be charged, pro-rated based on the week in which the withdrawal is effective. Contact your dean to complete the necessary paperwork. Withdrawals may be made for personal, medical, or uniformed services reasons.

Withdrawals from individual classes after the drop deadline, while remaining registered in other classes, can be made according to the schedule set by the individual schools.
