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. The VA will require that money be paid back to them.
