Withdrawal Penalty for Scholarship Students:

When an undergraduate student on scholarship exceeds the two-course limit for withdrawals, the following financial penalty will apply for each term the student withdraws from an additional course:

  • If a student is enrolled full-time (15 credits and above in Fall and Spring ), the overload tuition rate per credit for the academic year is applicable and will be charged at the time of withdrawal
  • If a student is enrolled full-time (12 to 14 credits in Fall and Spring ), the rate per credit is calculated by dividing the tuition charged by the number of registered credits and will be charged at the time of withdrawal
  • If a student is enrolled part-time (less than 12 credits in Fall and Spring), the part-time tuition rate per credit for the academic year will be charged at the time of withdrawal.

In the summer sessions, the student will be charged the full tuition for the course(s) from which he or she withdraws.

When a graduate student on scholarship exceeds the two-course limit for withdrawals, he or she will be charged the full tuition for the course(s) from which he or she withdraws.
