A student who wishes to withdraw from all courses does so by submitting a written notice to the registrar or by completing a withdrawal form, in person, at the registrar's office. A W grade is assigned for all courses. A percentage refund of tuition only applies through the sixth week of classes. A student who leaves the school unofficially without officially withdrawing in this manner receives failing grades in each course. The date on which the registrar receives the written notice governs the academic and financial consequences of withdrawal. The privilege of official withdrawal is not granted after the 12th week of classes; students who leave the school during this period are still considered officially enrolled and receive final grades for the semester.
Notification to the instructor, adviser, or any other administrative office does not fulfill the student's obligation to communicate directly and in writing with the registrar in all matters pertaining to changes in registration and withdrawal. The form may be found in the student self service section of the Office of the Registrar's website.
