Withdrawal from a Course (Add/Drop)
After the official add/drop period has ended, students can withdraw from a course only by submitting a course withdrawal request via MyAccess.
1. Log in to MyAccess
2. Go to schedule options
3. Select the current semester
4. Select the "withdraw" option next to the course you intend to be withdrawn from
5. Select "submit"
Your time-stamped request will be automatically sent to your advisor's queue for withdrawal approval and/or follow-up advising (as for student loan or visa reasons). Please contact the Registrar's Office at (202) 687-4020 or your advisor for any questions about this process.
Refunds, if applicable, are based on the date the form is submitted by the student to the Registrar. The School strictly adheres to the University's tuition refund deadlines and policies. Refunds are not authorized or recommended after these deadlines have passed. All refund requests are handled through the Office of Student Accounts. Additional information on tuition refunds can be found on the Student Accounts Policies and Procedures page.
Students who wish to withdraw from both (a) their course(s) and (b) their program should contact their advisor by email after withdrawing in MyAccess from their course(s).
Transfer of Registration
Students who are registered for a course that is not yet in session may transfer their registration to a later section of the same course or a different course. There are no processing fees for transferring registration, however, students who transfer into a course with a higher tuition rate will be responsible for the cost difference between the two courses. The deadline to submit a transfer request is 11:59 PM the day before the course begins.
Students who are registered for a course that is not yet in session may drop out of the course prior to the course start date. No letter grade will be assigned and dropped courses will not appear on official transcripts. The deadline to submit a drop request is 11:59 PM the day before the course begins. Students who drop will forfeit the nonrefundable deposit and will be subject to the refund policies found in the Student Handbook.
Students who are registered for a course that is currently in session may withdraw before the final day of class by contacting the Enrollment Management Team at email@example.com or (202) 687-7000. No grade will be assigned for the course on the student’s official transcripts. Please note that students cannot withdraw from courses after the final day of class. Students who withdraw from courses will be subject to the refund policies found in the Student Handbook.
