Drop/Add Policy

Drop/Add must be completed within ten business days after the first day of the term.  Some courses start at a time other than the first day of the term but must be added or dropped within the first 10 business days of the term regardless of a course start date.  Drops/Adds much be filed directly with the Registrar’s office.

Institutional Refund Schedule

The institutional charge is based on the number of days a student is enrolled at the University prior to the date of withdrawal or dismissal date.

The formula is calculated as follows:

Number of days attended
divided by
Total days in the enrollment period*
(*including weekends and holidays, less any scheduled breaks greater than five days)

The resulting fraction is converted to a percentage; therefore, if there are 90 days in the academic period, the following would apply:

Withdrawal on the 10th day     -    Institutional charge    =    11.1%
Withdrawal on the 25th day     -    Institutional charge    =    27.8%

Any percentage of attended days above 60% results in a 100% charge.

Enrolled students who withdraw or are dismissed from the University will be responsible for the payment of tuition in accordance with the Institutional Refund Schedule.
