Withdraw: Withdrawing from all courses after classes have begun for a specific academic term.

Course Rate:  Equivalent to the cost of 1.0 credit as approved by the Board of Governors fee schedule.

Schedule

Deadlines are pro-rated for courses of shorter duration. For continuing education fees, see the Part-Time, Distance and Continuing Education Calendar.

All tuition penalties for dropped courses are calculated based on the Course Rate. The Course Rate for any term is equivalent to the cost of 1.0 credits as approved by the Board of Governors (refer to Fees section). Note: full-time student tuition is capped at a maximum rate and results in a discounted rate of tuition being charged on some courses. Penalties are calculated based on Course Weight multiplied by the Course Rate, not on the discounted tuition fee.
