Drop, Withdrawals, and Late Registration

It is important that you review the Academic Calendar should you decide to drop or withdraw from a course. 


Being Dropped from Courses due to Nonpayment:

To avoid cancelation of your schedule you must pay in full or set up the monthly payment plan by the payment deadline each semester. If your schedule is canceled, you will have a “Drop Balance” hold added to your account. You will have to pay in full or set up the payment plan in order to have the hold removed so you can create a new schedule.

Withdrawal and Refund Dates:

Withdrawing from courses can have both academic and financial impact. It is important that you understand the withdrawal process. We recommend that you reach out to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, your Academic Advisor and the Anderson Central Office before you withdraw.

Official Term Withdrawal:

An official withdrawal date is defined as the date the student begins the withdrawal process as defined by Anderson University. To officially withdraw from the University the following must occur:

  1. Traditional Student: Begin the process with the Center for Student Success. The official withdrawal date is defined as the date the student initiates the withdrawal.
  2. Adult Studies, Online and Graduate Student: Begin the process with your Academic Success Advisor. The official withdrawal date is defined as the date the student initiates the withdrawal.

Review financial obligations with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships and Anderson Central. 

Unofficial Term Withdrawal:

An unofficial withdrawal occurs if a student fails to complete a period of enrollment but does not officially withdraw from Anderson University. The last date of class attendance in all classes becomes the applicable withdrawal date as determined by attendance records, computer assisted instruction, academic counseling, turning in a class assignment or attending a study group assigned by the instructors. Faculty members will report the last date of attendance to the Registrar and the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships when the student is determined to be no longer enrolled. A grade of WF or WP will be assigned.

Refund Policy:

The University recognizes that certain situations may necessitate withdrawal from the University during an academic term. The process for official withdrawal begins with the Center for Student Success for traditional students. Students who withdraw from the University may be eligible for a full or partial refund based on the last date of attendance. The policy is outlined below.

Fall and Spring:

Traditional Undergraduate students who withdraw from the University:
fall/spring semester:

 

       1)      First week – 100% of tuition and fees only

       2)      Second week – 60% of tuition & fees only

       3)      Third week – 40% of tuition & fees only

       4)      Fourth week – 0% of tuition and fees only

The Registrar publishes a calendar that indicates the Dates of Financial Responsibility (DFR) for each session and term. Enrolled students who do not request a withdrawal by the published date will be financially responsible for all charges related to their course registration including tuition, fees, and books. 

A federal financial aid recipient who withdraws from a term and is eligible to receive a refund will have the refund amount applied toward the outstanding debt the student owes the College based on the return of funds procedure outlined below.

Return to Title IV (R2T4) Policy: 

 

Federal Aid and University Withdrawals:

If a student who receives Federal Title IV Aid withdraws from the university and attends less than 60% of the semester, a percentage of federal aid will be returned resulting in a possible balance being owed to the University. If a student receiving Federal Title IV Aid withdraws after completing 60% of the semester, no Federal Title IV Aid will be returned. At this point, the student is considered to have earned 100% of the Federal Title IV Aid for the semester. The adjustment of aid may have implications for future aid years, and it is recommended that all students considering withdrawal reach out to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships for guidance.

Federal Title IV Financial Aid includes:

Federal Pell Grants

Federal TEACH Grant

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)

Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Direct Loans

Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)


Your federal financial aid eligibility must be recalculated if you completely withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a semester. The following dates represent the 60% point of each semester, and you must attend through this date to earn 100% of your federal aid: 

Terms Fall 2022 Spring 2023 Summer 2023
Semester Saturday, October 22, 2022 Wednesday, March 8, 2023 Monday, July 3, 2023
7 Week A only Tuesday, September 20, 2022 Tuesday, February 14, 2023 Monday, June 5, 2023
7 Week B only Wednesday, November 16, 2022 Tuesday, April 11, 2023 Monday, July 24, 2023
7 Week A and 7 Week B Monday, October 17, 2022 Sunday, March 19, 2023 Tuesday, July 4, 2023

 

A student who does not complete at least 60% of a semester will owe a repayment to the University and/or the federal government for the amount of unearned financial aid.

Military Federal Tuition Assistance Withdrawal Refund Policy:

In compliance with the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding, Anderson University has set forth a policy by which the institution will adhere to the return of any unearned tuition assistance (TA) funds on a proportional basis through the 60% completion date of an academic course. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period; if the student’s last day of attendance is on or before the 60% attendance date, the unearned funds will be returned to the military branch from which the funds were provided. 

Should the student’s last date of attendance pass the 60% point of completion, 100% of the tuition assistance will have been earned. When calculating these dates, the course period does include weekends. However, it does not include scheduled breaks of five or more consecutive days (i.e. fall or spring break). The official date of the withdrawal is based on the student’s request to withdraw from the course, which could impact the student’s eligibility to receive the full amount of TA funds originally approved. TA funds are earned on a percentage basis during an enrollment period, and the return of unearned funds are based upon the date a student ceases attendance.

7-week course withdraw submitted and last date of attendance confirmed:

Before or during week 1 100% return
During week 2 75% return
During weeks 3-4 50% return
During week 5 40% return 
During weeks 6-7 0% return (60% or more of course is completed)

16-week course withdraw submitted and last date of attendance confirmed:

Before or during weeks 1-2 100% return
During weeks 3-4 75% return
During weeks 5-8 50% return
During weeks 9-10 40% return
During weeks 11-16 0% return (60% or more of course is completed)

Anderson University will return TA funds based on the calculation process of when a student withdraws from a course. In some cases, this process may result in a student owing the school for unpaid tuition and fees. Any student who wishes to withdraw from a course is encouraged to speak with their advisor and the Office of Financial Services (if federal aid is being received).

If a service member stops attending due to a military service obligation, Anderson University will work with the service member to find solutions that may ease any debt the student could incur as result of this policy.

Questions related to Anderson University’s Tuition Assistance policy may be directed to the Anderson Central Office located on the lower level of the Student Center, Suite 153. Inquiries may also be directed via email to andersoncentral@andersonuniversity.edu or by phone at (864) 231-2070.
