Students are expected to be responsible consumers and will be counseled in support of good financial decisions. You are responsible for the full amount of the charges listed above. Arrangements to use financial assistance such as scholarships, company sponsored re-imbursement payments, or any other form of assistance with your costs must be approved prior to the start of your classes. Degrees are granted and transcripts are released only after all financial obligations to the university have been met.
If a student determines that a leave of absence is insufficient time to accommodate a change in circumstances, withdrawal from the University may be requested by the student by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org . Withdrawal from the University is initiated after a conference with the student’s academic advisor and the completion of a Withdrawal from the University form. The form for withdrawal requires the advisor’s signature. The student may initiate a return to the University by contacting Student Services. Depending on the length of absence, adjustments may be made to the student’s Program of Study.
