Students are required to follow the Academic Handbook and Code of Student Responsibility
Students who must withdraw either from a course or from the University may do so by using the University's web registration system. Students unable to use the web registration system should contact their home school/college office, whether in person or by phone. Withdrawals processed via the web or through direct contact with the home school/college office are effective the day on which they are made. Simply ceasing to attend, or notifying the instructor, or nonpayment of tuition, does not constitute an official withdrawal from class and will result in academic as well as financial penalty.
These come under three headings: personal, military, and medical. The Music and Theatre Schools already have leave of absence policies in place. Any student wishing to take a leave of absence must complete a "Leave of Absence Application." Students may complete the online form from home, or by visiting their home school/college office.
Students must have completed all requirements by the last day of term for which they apply for degree conferral.
In the normal course, students will receive their diplomas 8-10 weeks after the date of degree conferral.
The university's responsibility is to confer the degree and identify the student as "graduated" within 30 days of the end of the term in which they complete all the requirements for their degree.
During their college career, students may be allowed one medical/personal approved administrative withdrawal and one college office administrative withdrawal, each for one or more courses in a single term.
