Withdrawal From the School of Law

Withdrawal From the School of Law

If a student finds it necessary to withdraw from the Law School, the student must apply in writing to the Office of Student Affairs for permission to withdraw. The student may be entitled to tuition remission. The amount of remission diminishes as the student attendance at the School of Law lengthens. Upon recommendation from the Dean, the University will remit tuition and fees (except the admissions seat deposit submitted by incoming first-year students) as follows:

  • 100 percent tuition and fees refund for withdrawal prior to or during the first week of classes
  • 75 percent tuition and fees refund for withdrawal during the second week of classes
  • 50 percent tuition and fees refund for withdrawal during the third week of classes
  • 25 percent tuition and fees refund for withdrawal during the fourth week of classes
  • 0 percent tuition and fees refund for withdrawal thereafter

For the listing of first day of classes, please see the academic calendar.

A student who withdraws during any semester without approval of the Dean is not entitled to remission of tuition and will automatically receive a failing grade in all courses.

A student who withdraws from the Law School is not entitled to return and must reapply for admission if he or she is interested in returning. Readmission is not guaranteed. If the student is readmitted, the Law School may accept or reject any or all of the previously earned credits.
