Withdrawal

When a student registers, it is understood that he or she will pay in full all charges assumed at registration. Failure to attend classes does not alter the charges or entitle the student to a refund. You will not be permitted to receive your grades, transcripts, or diploma unless your student account is satisfied in full. All VA students should see Rob Healy, Niagara's veterans services coordinator, before withdrawing to prevent over payment of benefits from the VA.

Official Withdrawal

A student officially withdraws from the university when he or she completes the appropriate forms and follows the procedures outlined in the catalogue. A resident student must also withdraw from university housing. The following table will be used to determine refunds:

Course Withdrawal

Students may drop courses with no penalty during the official drop/add period. This is for the period of September 6 through September 16, 2016, for the fall semester. The drop/add period for the spring semester is Jan. 17-27, 2017. After the end of the drop/add period, students are refunded following the table above under course withdrawal column.

The above course revision policy, in general, applies to part-time students (enrolled in less than 12 semester hours) and graduate students. **If a student should decide to withdraw from a course after the drop/add period and add another course, he/she will be refunded for the course dropped according to the above schedule and will be charged the full hourly rate for the course added. Full-time students who are making course changes and remain within block tuition receive no adjustment to tuition. Overload charges may result if the student drops a course after the add/drop period with partial or full charges, and adds another course. The refund schedule for the summer session is contained in the summer catalog.
