Add/Drop/Total Withdrawal Form

Impact on Financial Aid
If a student receives any type of financial aid (grants, scholarships, and loans) and officially withdraws completely from all classes before 60% of the semester has passed, the student is required to have their financial aid prorated based on the U. S. Department of Education’s Federal Refund Policy. A student who falls under this criterion will have the appropriate percentage of his financial aid returned to the appropriate fund and is responsible to pay any balance remaining on the account as a result of this calculation. If a student does not attend class and/or fails to officially withdraw, all charges are billed to the student and financial aid is cancelled.

Impact on Veterans Education Benefits
If a student is receiving Veterans Education Benefits (e.g. "GI Bill®", Education Assistance Program (EAP) or Federal Tuition Assistance) they must notify the office of Registration/Student Records. Dropping or withdrawing may have a negative impact on Veterans Education Benefits. If a student is dropping/withdrawing due to orders to active duty, they must bring a copy of their active duty orders to the office of Registration/Student Records.
