Refunds for Total Withdrawal After Official Start of Term

If withdrawing from all courses, according to the Board Regents' policy, the refund amount for a student is based on a pro rata percentage determined by the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed. There will be no refund for a partial withdrawal after schedule change.

Fee Payment Deadlines

All Fees must be paid by these deadlines. If there is a remaining balance on your account after either of these deadlines, you may be dropped from all courses. Your registration will automatically be confirmed once your account is paid in full.

If you decide not to attend, you must drop your courses before the first day of the term/semester. Failure to do so will result in your remaining officially registered and may result in the assignment of failing grades.
