ADDS, DROPS & WITHDRAWALS

Once a student is registered, any changes to the student’s schedule must be made in writing at the Registrar's Office. See the University Calendar in this schedule for specific deadlines. These actions become effective the date the written request, signed by the instructor, is received by the Registrar's Office. Graduate students must clear all adds through the Graduate Studies Office. Payment for added courses is due within 24 hours of adding the course. For refund deadlines and rates see the Refund Policy below.

REFUND POLICY

All drop or withdrawal actions must be initiated in writing by the student through the Registrar's Office. The student alone is allowed to initiate this action. A drop is different from a withdrawal (see below explanation). Please read the definitions of each below. Refunds will be processed after the 12th class day.

A Drop is defined as dropping one or more courses while remaining enrolled in other courses. A 100% refund is given for those hours dropped during late registration. A Withdrawal is defined as dropping ALL courses. Drops and withdrawals become effective the date the written request, with all required signatures, is received by the Registrar's Office.
