Withdrawing or Resigning

There are four main factors that can heavily influence the account balance of a student who has withdrawn or resigned.

  • The student’s financial aid includes Federal Title IV funds.
  • The student’s financial aid includes state and institutional funds
  • The student’s financial aid includes any scholarships including general and departmental scholarships.
  • Bursar’s office may reduce the student’s tuition charges.

Financial aid may be reduced and leave a balance due back to the Bursar's office if a student withdraws or resigns after the start of the semester.  Any student who is planning on resigning should discuss the situation with a financial aid counselor as well as a staff member from the Office of the University Bursar. It is far better to be proactive regarding your withdrawal or resignation than to be subject to unexpected and significant aid changes.
