Full-time and part-time students, who wish to withdraw (permanently or with intent to return) from the College are required to complete official documentation and meet with the Vice President for Student Affairs. Students participating in College or federally funded loan programs must schedule an exit interview with the Director of Financial Aid.
Students withdrawing from the College during any semester or before the final examinations or evaluations will receive no credit.
Non-attendance does not relieve a student of his/her financial obligations nor entitle the student to a refund. The charges on a student’s bill remain his/her obligation unless the student formally withdraws with the Office of Student Affairs. The student will be held responsible for the academically related charges in accordance with a schedule that is posted in the Business Office.
For the purpose of determining an official date of withdrawal from the College that will be used to complete the academic record including the determination of grades of W or F; determine any applicable refunds or charges, determine eligibility for full or partial disbursement of financial aid and all other academic and college business purposes, the following guidelines will apply:
- The Official Date of Withdrawal will be considered the first date that the student has notified either the Office of the Registrar or the Vice President for Student Affairs of the student’s intent to withdraw from the College permanently or with intent to return.
- If after notifying the appropriate office the student has participated in an academically related activity that can be verified, including but not limited to attending a class, taking an exam or submitting a paper, then the latest date of participation in the academically related activity will be considered the official date of withdrawal.
- The completion of the withdrawal form provided by the Vice President for Student Affairs will complete the withdrawal process and will note the effective date as defined above. The student signature on the form will indicate agreement with the determined date.
- In the case of a student leaving the College without providing documentation, the Registrar and/or Vice President for Student Affairs will determine the last date of participation in an academically related activity and that date will be considered the official date of withdrawal.
- If the last date of participation in an academically related activity cannot be determined, the College may use the midpoint of the semester as the official withdrawal date.
