If a student withdraws for reasons beyond his or her control (e.g., illness, military service, job transfer, or shift change imposed by the employer that creates a direct conflict with the class schedule), the fee charges may be reduced in direct proportion to the number of weeks in attendance. An application for involuntary withdrawal can only be processed for courses in which the student has already received a grade of W (withdrawn). The aforementioned applications will only be considered for semesters falling within the immediately preceding year (three semesters). Appeals pertaining to semesters beyond this one-year time limit will not be accepted. All applications for involuntary withdrawal must be documented and are processed only by mail on forms provided by the Bursar and Accounts Receivable. Address such correspondence to:

The decision of the Board is final and not subject to reappeal.
