A student desiring to withdraw from the College should consult with both the assigned academic advisor and the appropriate Dean. Students receiving financial aid should discuss the financial implications of this choice with the Office of Financial Aid and a member of the Student Financial Services team as there are often out-of-pocket costs associated with withdrawal as well as loan repayment obligations. The form for withdrawal from the College is available in the Office of the Dean of the College. It must be signed by the student and returned to the Office of the Dean of the College. The last documented academically-related activity, as indicated on the College withdrawal form, will be used to calculate tuition refunds and Title IV federal aid returns when applicable. If a student fails to officially withdraw from the college, the withdrawal date will be the midpoint of the semester or the last date of academic activity as determined by the College.

In the event of a student's withdrawal from the College or change in status, refunds will be determined as follows:

Tuition, Room and Board

  • Within the first two weeks of the semester: 80%
  • Within the third week of the semester: 60%
  • Within the fourth week of the semester: 40%
  • Within the fifth week of the semester: 20%
  • Beyond the fifth week: 0%

Institutional aid will be reduced at a percentage commensurate with the refund percentage with the exception of contracted aid.  Contracted aid such as Athletic Scholarship, Debate Scholarship, Resident Assistant Grant, and Yearbook Grant are prorated on a per diem basis if a student ceases involvement in any one of these programs.  The aid will be prorated in the semester the student ceases involvement and will be calculated from the first day of the enrollment period to the day the student stops the program.

Fees are non-refundable.
