Cancellation of Enrollment


Circumstances may arise that require a student to cancel their enrollment at the university. A cancellation occurs prior to the start of a term. If you are already here and have been taking classes (i.e. a continuing student), you are encouraged to consult with your advisor prior to completing the official cancelation process so that you may discuss the best possible outcomes for your individual circumstances. If the term has already started, you will need to follow the withdrawal policy.
