Withdrawal/Drop Policies

Schedule adjustments made through the first week of classes (add/drop period) may result in an adjustment of tuition and fees.  Full tuition and fees are assessed for Undergraduates at 12 hours or more and graduate students 9 hours or more.  Undergraduate students enrolled in 1-11 credit hours and graduate students in 1-8 credit hours at the end of the add/drop period will be charged for those credits in which they are enrolled.
