Exemptions from the official withdrawal policy require an appeal to the Academic Review Board, which will grant an exemption only if a student can demonstrate extenuating circumstances. Applications can be obtained in the Office of Registration and Records. Please note that neither failure to attend classes nor failure to pay tuition constitute a withdrawal.
Students who determine that significant physical or financial hardships necessitate a full or partial withdrawal from courses may be eligible to withdraw from courses and/or seek additional financial consideration beyond the normal fee and refund policies. Types of significant hardship may include serious or chronic medical condition(s), caretaking needs for a medical issue of a family member, and involuntary and significant changes to cost of living. Students who need to withdraw from some or all courses for physical and financial hardship who are seeking additional financial consideration may submit an Appeal to the Refund Review Board, explain in detail the hardship being experienced, and provide supporting documentation.
