Course Withdrawal Procedure 


Students have until the end of the published add/drop period to enroll or make schedule changes.  The period ends at the end of the first week of a fall or spring semester and at the end of the third day of the summer term.  Requests to leave classes after the end of the published add/drop period are considered withdrawals.

Tuition and fees for classes dropped prior to the published add/drop deadline will be refunded in full.  No refund is given after the deadline.


Enrollment Confirmation

Students who enroll late in the first week of the term should contact their faculty members and log on to Blackboard to complete any assigned coursework prior to the second week of the term. Faculty are required to report students who have not participated or attended class during the first week of the semester.  Financial aid awards may be reduced or students may be dropped from term enrollment for non-attendance.
