A student who finds it necessary to leave the university before the end of a semester must withdraw officially through the Office of Student Affairs. Students may withdraw for any reason up to the period of three weeks prior to the end of the semester. Students will be permitted to withdraw during the final three weeks of the semester only due to illness or other cogent reasons as determined by the office of Enrollment & Student Services. Failure to follow the required procedure may prejudice the right to an honorable dismissal and to any refunds. Those enrolled in any federal program of Veterans benefits must also notify the Veterans Affairs Office (154 McGinnies Hall) of their withdrawal.

A student withdrawing during a term may be eligible for certain refunds. Please check the Admissions & Financial Aid section of the catalog for more information.
