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for involuntary withdrawal can only be processed for courses in which the student has already received a grade of W (withdrawn).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.
