Dropping a Course and Withdrawal Policies
Dropping a Course
Courses can only be dropped through Campus Connection. You cannot drop to zero courses on Campus Connection, as this is considered a withdrawal from school. Please read more about course withdrawal at the Office of the Registrar.
Students are responsible for 100% of tuition and fees charged for courses dropped after the last day to add/drop courses. Please refer to interactive Academic Calendar to determine the last day to drop a course (without refund) for the semester, or the last day to withdraw to zero credits for a semester and receive a partial reduction in tuition and fees.
If you are registered for classes and want to unregister for ALL classes, this is considered withdrawing from school. You cannot officially withdraw from school online using Campus Connection. You must contact the Office of the Registrar and complete an electronic form.
Impact on Financial Aid Eligibility
If you withdraw from courses, your financial aid eligibility will be reviewed. If you were awarded a Federal Pell Grant, your academic attendance/academic participation will be confirmed for the withdrawn course. In addition, continually dropping courses may put you at risk of not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
To receive financial aid for summer semester, you must have filled out the prior year's FAFSA and be enrolled in a minimum of 6 semester-based credits for the summer as an undergraduate student, 5 credits as a grad student or 3 credits as a law student. Once registered, you must also fill out the Request for Summer Financial Aid Form.
Keep in mind that because summer semester is considered the final part of the current academic year, your ability to receive summer financial aid depends on the amount of federal aid you've already received for the fall and spring semesters. If you've already accepted the full amount for the current academic year, you may to explore applying for a Federal Direct PLUS or private education loan.
How to Withdraw from UND
The date of the official withdrawal will be the date the form is received by the Office of the Registrar. You should check with the Office of the Registrar to verify the receipt of the cancellation.
Completely withdrawing from all of your courses at UND may mean that you are eligible to get a refund on your tuition and fees (see schedule below). However, keep in mind that if you are a financial aid recipient, you might also be required to return some of your financial aid to the federal government.
Remember: UND has a lot of services available to help you be successful. Before withdrawing, contact One-Stop and we'll be happy to talk about your options.
