A total withdrawal is defined as formally ceasing attendance in any active courses that would end enrollment within a semester, earlier than previously scheduled. This includes part of term courses that do not span the length of time of the entire semester.

Please take the time to review the Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid's Withdrawal From All Classes - Things to Consider information.
Any student who completes a total withdrawal will be removed from their payment plan.
A reduction in course load (a class withdrawal) after the fourth (4) day of classes is not a basis for a refund. After the fourth day of the semester a student may withdraw from a course and receive a "W" grade within the established time period. After that time period, without justifiable reasons or neglecting to withdraw from the class through the dean's office, results in a "F" grade.
Refer to the Academic Calendar by Semester for dates to receive a "W" grade in classes.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the university's withdrawal policy, you can contact Student Financial Services at the Timme Center for Student Services at (231) 591-3945 Monday thru Friday, between 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
