Withdrawal Procedure—If a student terminates course work during the semester, registration must be formally withdrawn. Failure to submit a Student Withdrawal form may result in F grades and in payment of tuition and fees which otherwise might be avoided. Withdrawals are processed according to an established refund schedule. Notifying the Registrar’s Office helps ensure a smooth withdrawal-readmission process. Students may do this over the telephone, through the mail, or by fax, but the preferable method is in person. If students are not planning to return, a formal withdrawal assures students of receiving any refunds due in a timely manner.
Withdrawal of Students Called to Active Military Service—Students called to active duty are guaranteed readmission upon completion of active service. Enrolled Michigan Tech students who are called to active military duty will be given the opportunity to work out the best possible solution for maintaining their academic status. They must choose one of the following options before departing for active service:
- Leave for active service with a tuition refund of 100 percent. Refunds involving financial aid will be adjudicated to decrease the payback required from the student to the lowest possible amount.
- Agree that temporary grades will be issued for enrolled courses. The temporary grades will be P for Progress or I for Incomplete. In some cases, arrangements can be made to complete the course work while on active duty. Otherwise, the student may complete the courses when he or she returns to the University.
