This information pertains to students admitted to a degree
program through Continuing and Professional Education. For
information on drops and refunds for other programs, please visit
and Policies page.
To drop a course in the program, a completed drop form must
be submitted to the Continuing and Professional Education office.
Courses must be dropped by the University census date (the 20th
day of the regular academic semester). Drops are not permitted
after the census date.
To withdraw from a course after the census date, please fill out
a withdrawal form
and obtain the appropriate signatures and return to the Extended
Education office. Withdrawing from a course after census date
places a “W” on your transcript. There are no refunds for course
The last day to receive a partial refund is the census date. No
refunds are allowed after the census date. To obtain a refund, a
form should be submitted along with a drop form and
should be submitted to the Extended Education office. Refunds are
pro-rated based upon the date the course is dropped. After the
last day to get a full refund, there is a $25 administrative drop

How to Estimate a Pro-Rated Refund:

Subtract the pro-rated fee from your semester tuition. This
will be your approximate refund, minus a $25 drop fee

Up through the 60% point in each payment period, a prorated
schedule is used to determine the amount of Title IV funds the
student has earned at the time of withdrawal. After the 60%
