If a student withdraws after the add/drop period, the student must provide mitigating circumstances documentation to our office. If no mitigating circumstances are provided to our office, will will submit your withdrawal without mitigating circumstances. As a result, any payments paid out for the withdraw from the beginning of the term (tuition and fees, book stipend, and housing allowance) will be considered an overpayment.
