Dropping / Adding Courses

last modified 2013-01-08 01:07 PM

Within the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters (one week in the summer semester) students may drop or add a course. Adding a course requires approval by the course instructor. Students need the approval of the director of graduate studies to withdraw from a course after the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters through two weeks after midterm. The specific final withdraw date is found on page 42 of the Graduate Studies Bulletin.

With the approval of the director of graduate studies, a student may withdraw from a course after the first week of the summer semester through the fifth week of the summer semester. The director will consult with the course instructor in making a decision. For these courses the student’s record shows W and is not counted in computing the grade point average. An unauthorized withdrawal from a course is recorded as an F. This F is counted in the grade point average.

If a student withdraws from a course, tuition reimbursement occurs as follows:

Semester courses

• Five business days from email billing: full refund of tuition, registration, and technology fee.

• From five business days after billing to first two weeks of the course: full refund of tuition; no refund of registration or technology fee.

• From week three to midterm (60% of course completion): pro rata refund of tuition according to partial refund guidelines; no refund of registration or technology fees.

• From midterm of course to end: no refund.

Summer session

• Five business days from email billing: full refund of tuition, registration, and technology fee.

• From five business days after billing to first two days of the course: full refund of tuition; no refund of registration or technology fee.

• From day three to midterm (60% of course completion): pro rata refund of tuition according to partial refund guidelines; no refund of registration or technology fees.

• From midterm of course to end: no refund.

Partial Refund Guidelines: Pro rata refunds of tuition will be given to students who withdraw from a course prior to the midterm (60% course completion) date. The refund will equal the amount of course tuition the student has paid minus the proportion of the course completed as of the date of the notice of withdrawal. Refunded tuition will be sent within 40 days of a notice of withdrawal.
