The University uses the term withdraw to formally indicate that a student has dropped or will drop all courses for a given term. Withdrawing from the university differs from dropping one or several classes within a given term, because as long as a student retains at least one class, he or she is still considered to be registered for that term.
A withdrawal is done in consultation with the deans or advisors in your school. A statement will be added to your transcript indicating that you have withdrawn from the University. Depending on the date of withdrawal, you may be entitled to some pro-rated refund of tuition. In most cases, ancillary fees will remain on your account, in addition to a $75 withdrawal fee.
It is important to consult with your school to be informed of how the withdrawal will affect your standing, degree pursuit, privileges, and conditions for return.
Summer Term Withdrawals
Summer terms have very abbreviated withdrawal schedules based on the individual sub-terms. Therefore it is important to consult the Summer Bulletin when considering a summer withdrawal.
