At the beginning of each term, the period up to the last date to add a class or drop a class with a 100 percent refund is considered the registration period. After that date, the Office of Student Financial Services will check students' enrollment for the term. Eligibility rules for Federal Direct Student Loans require students to be enrolled at least half-time as of that date. Credits for federal loan funds will be reversed if the student is not meeting the enrollment requirement.
Students who withdraw during an academic term will receive a tuition refund based on the policy specified in the university catalog. The financial aid award will be adjusted based on the percentage of the semester up to the date of withdrawal. Funds from federal programs will be returned to the Department of Education.
