Withdrawal Policy

When a student withdraws from all classes during a semester, it is the College’s responsibility to determine the student’s withdrawal date for the purposes of the return of Title IV (federal) financial aid and the refund/cancellation of charges and non-federal financial assistance.

Official Withdrawal

For a student to be considered officially withdrawn, he/she must notify the College orally or in writing of his/her intent to withdraw by contacting the Office of Student Affairs. The withdrawal date is the date that the student notifies the Office of Student Affairs of his/her intent to withdraw and /or begins the withdrawal process by completing a withdrawal form.

Unofficial Withdrawal

If a student ceases attendance without providing official notification to the College, the withdrawal date will be the mid-point of the semester, except that the College may use as the withdrawal date the student’s last date of attendance at an academically-related activity, as documented by the College.

Special Circumstances

If the College determines that a student did not provide official notification because of illness, accident, grievous personal loss, or other such circumstances beyond the student’s control, the Dean of Students may determine a withdrawal date related to that circumstance.
