Impact of Withdrawal on Enrollment Status

The effective date of the withdrawal may affect the full- or part-time enrollment status of the student. For the purpose of establishing enrollment status, enrolled credits are the number of registered credits after day 28 of the enrollment term. More Information

Impact of Withdrawal on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

The effective date of a withdrawal also affects the calculation of satisfactory academic progress. For purposes of calculating satisfactory progress, credits attempted is the number of registered credits after day 28 of the enrollment term. Thus, the date of withdrawal affects whether the credits are counted in the number of credits attempted. More Information

VA Benefits for Military Students

Attention military students receiving Chapter 33 VA Educational Benefits: Withdrawing from one or more of your studies after the end of the school's add/drop period may result in the Veterans Administration (VA) reducing or stopping your benefits on the date of reduction or withdrawal. If you withdraw from a study, or studies, after the end of the add/drop period, you may have to repay all benefits for the studies unless you can show the change was due to mitigating circumstances. The VA defines mitigating circumstances as unavoidable and unexpected events that directly interfere with your pursuit of a course and are beyond your control.
