Next Review Date: 11/01/2018 (E2Y)
Sr. Reviewer: University Registrar
Withdrawal - the process of dropping all courses in which a student is enrolled and going to zero hours for the current semester. Voluntary withdrawal is a process initiated by the student and not resulting from an administrative action.
OUR - Office of the University Registrar.
PROCEDURE FOR FINANCIAL AID RECIPIENTS
PROCEDURES FOR WITHDRAWAL BY OFFICE VISIT
A student may withdraw by visiting the OUR, located on the first floor of the J.C. Kellam Administration Building.
A student enrolled in a combination of first half courses and full semester courses will follow the drop procedure if the request to drop the full semester courses is after the drop deadline for the first half courses.
The student must complete an Official Withdrawal Form to document the transaction. An official withdrawal requires the student’s signature and a picture I.D.
The OUR will process the withdrawal using the date of the student’s office visit as the effective date of withdrawal.
PROCEDURES FOR WITHDRAWAL BY LETTER OR FAX
The student must sign all written withdrawal requests.
The OUR will use the date the letter or fax was received to determine the withdrawal’s effective date.
A student may check his or her class schedule online to verify that the withdrawal has been processed.
The appropriate offices, including ID Services, IT Assistance Center (ITAC), Collections, Student Health Center, Financial Aid and Scholarships, Department of Housing and Residential Life, the Alkek Library, Instructional Technologies Support, and the Athletic Department, will be notified by email that the student has withdrawn. For all withdrawals after the automatic “W” period, withdrawal slips are mailed to academic departments via campus mail the business day following withdrawal processing.
PROCEDURE FOR WITHDRAWAL BY EMAIL
WITHDRAWAL THROUGH CATSWEB NOT PERMITTED
Students who currently reside in university housing must contact the Department of Housing and Residential Life to arrange for a contract cancellation due to withdrawal from the university.
The OUR may make exceptions to the refund schedule under extenuating circumstances. Upon receipt of documentation from the student (such as a doctor’s statement in the case of illness), the OUR may request a full or partial refund, depending upon the circumstances of the case. The student’s records will reflect the actual date of withdrawal or the withdrawal date (supported by documentation) determined by the OUR.
If there is no justification for a refund, the student may appeal to the Tuition and Fees Refund Appeals Committee. This is the final appeals process (see UPPS No. 02.01.12, Tuition and Fees Refund Appeal Policy).
Federal regulations prohibit the OUR from issuing financial aid refunds to students.
