Course Withdrawals

  1. Non- attendance in a course does not constitute an official withdrawal. Students must drop courses online through Self Service Banner.

  3. Students are responsible for all tuition and related charges. The Course Withdrawal Schedule will apply to the date the student withdrew in Self Service Banner, regardless of when they stopped attending the course.

Students who leave the University without officially withdrawing and who subsequently officially apply for and are granted a retro-active withdrawal by the University, will be charged a $50.00 administration processing fee in addition to the regular University fees assessed up to the official withdrawal date established by the Registrar. Student fees such as medical, dental, U-Pass, student association and journal fees are non-refundable for retroactive withdrawals.
