To be eligible for a credit or refund, a student must officially withdraw from a course
within the stated deadline as displayed on WebSMART Class Schedule Summary for exact refund dates. If registration occurs after the
refund date for a class, no refund will be available.
For summer or short courses, withdrawal must occur within the first 10% of the course
(often this the first day).
If you decide not to attend classes, it is your responsibility to officially withdraw within published deadlines to avoid penalty
grades and fee obligations. A withdrawal initiated by a professor may not result
in a refund.
