Voluntary Withdrawal



How to Withdraw from the Program

A student who wishes to withdraw from their program must make the request in writing to their academic advisor. In addition, if the student is enrolled in courses during the semester in which they are requesting withdrawal, the student must complete a Registration Transaction Form pdf.  All charges for courses from which the student withdraws are subject to the refund policy found at the Office of the Registrar’s website.  Failure to submit the request for withdrawal in writing to their academic advisor along with the required Registration Transaction Form pdf can result in an extended financial obligation and the permanent recording of grades of F (Failure) on the student’s transcript.
