- A student who wishes to add or drop a class must do so either in the Office of Records and Advising (Room A-203) or online with the CLAWS system. Students are directed to retain a copy of all online (CLAWS) transactions for their records. A $20.00 schedule adjustment fee is charged beginning with the opening day of the semester. A class may be dropped without academic penalty until the 3/4 point of the semester or term (dates to be determined and published on CLAWS each semester by the Office of Records and Advising). It is the student's responsibility to take all action necessary to withdraw from a class. A grade of "W" will appear on the record for any class dropped after the institutional refund date.
The University does not refund tuition for students who have failed to drop courses during the prescribed time period. Students who seek a tuition refund must submit a written request to the director of Records and Registration Services (for academic-related reasons), or to the assistant vice president for Student Affairs (for a health-related reason). Students requesting a refund must be current with financial obligations to the university at the close of the term prior to the refund request. The respective vice president will review the circumstances surrounding the request and notify the student, in writing, of the result. All decisions are final.
- After the first week of a section, a student must have the instructor's signature to add a class. The last day a student may register for any course that has already begun will coincide with the last day to withdraw from a course and receive a full refund.
- A student who withdraws from all courses at any time during the semester, or plans a leave of absence, must complete a Withdrawal Form in the Student Affairs office. The student ID card will be deposited in that office. The student is entitled to references and transcripts if all obligations to the University have been met.
- Resident students must formally withdraw from housing when leaving permanently by completing the Room Withdrawal Form available through CLAWS.
