Financial Aid Recipients:
Students who choose to withdraw during the first 60% of a semester will forfeit a portion of their grants, scholarships and loans. Following federal, state, and insitutional guidelines, the Financial Aid office will determine the amount of unearned aid resulting from the withdrawal. This calculation, determined by the number of days in attendance, is separate from the schedule above and may result in a higher balance due.

The official date of withdrawal is the last date of recorded attendance as determined by the Academic Services office, in conjunction with faculty. If a student stops attending classes without official notification to the office of Academic Services, the student is responsible for 100% of tuition, fees, room and board regardless of whenthe student stopped attending classes.

There is a $100 withdrawal fee.

After the drop/add period, recalculations are only granted if ALL courses are dropped for the semester. There are no refunds for individual courses dropped once the drop/add period has ended.

*Room charges begin the day you move into the residence hall.
