Withdrawal From The University
Students who leave the university must officially withdraw through the Office of Student Experience and Engagement (Administration 214, 660-543-4114). International students must notify the International Center (Ward Edwards 1200, 660-543-4195) prior to beginning the process of withdrawal from the university. In the event a student fails to initiate this process, his/her withdrawal is not considered complete and if the student does not drop his/her classes, grades of F will be recorded for failure to attend classes, and the student is responsible for all charges to their account. Any refunds given are based on the established refund schedule*.
After the published last day to drop a course, if the student is petitioning to withdraw late from all courses, the petition should be directed to the Office of Student Experience and Engagement. Late withdrawals are by petition only and are only approved for documented, extenuating circumstances (e.g., hospitalization, death in the family) that prevented the student from completing the course(s). If a late withdrawal petition is approved, a grade of LW will be assigned and the instructor will be informed of the approval. A grade of LW will not impact the grade point average, but will be reflected on the transcript.
Regulations governing credit for room and board payments are found in the housing contract. Contact University Housing for more information. A financial aid recipient who officially or unofficially withdraws from UCM will be required to repay some or all of the grant and loan assistance credited to his or her UCM account, based on the date of withdrawal and last date of attendance for the semester. Contact Student Financial Services for more information.
*Course specific refund and withdrawal dates may be found in MyCentral. These dates can be found in the Student Services tab, UCM Registration section titled Check Refund Dates.
