Credit Withdrawal Policy

Total Withdrawal from the University

Students who register but do not attend classes, or who withdraw after attending classes for any reason, will not receive a credit toward tuition unless they withdraw officially by submitting a written notice of withdrawal to the office of the dean of their respective schools. The effective date of withdrawal will be the date on which the notice is received by the respective dean, and the percentage of refund will be determined by this date.

Tuition, room and board fees will be credited on this basis: If the student leaves within the first two weeks of the semester, 80% of the full semester charge is credited; within the first three weeks, 60% is credited; within the first four weeks, 40% is credited; within the first five weeks, 20% is credited. After the fifth week there is no credit of tuition, room or meal charges. Refundable credit must be claimed within one calendar year. For purposes of determining the percentage of credit toward tuition and fees, the first week of classes will be considered the start of the semester and upon which adjustments will be based.
