(A) Policy statement. A student who withdraws from all classes or drops one or more courses not later than the first day of classes for the semester may obtain full refund of fees paid or an adjustment of fees billed. A student is not considered withdrawn until the withdrawal application is received in the appropriate university office, as detailed in the schedule of classes bulletin. Withdrawal notices sent to any other office of the university are not valid. The portion of fees refundable is determined by the date on which the completed withdrawal or drop form is received in the appropriate office. A student who has not paid registration or housing fees and fails to withdraw from the university and/or residence hall will continue to be liable for the fees assessed.
