Course Withdrawal Refunds

Course Withdrawal Refunds

Dropping or Withdrawing from a Course

An academic drop occurs when you remove yourself from a course before or during UMUC's drop period. There are no academic consequences for this action, but there may be financial aid repercussions for this drop if you no longer meet aid qualifications. The course will show on your registration history as dropped but will not post on any unofficial or official transcripts and does not count as attempted credit.

An academic withdrawal from a course occurs when you remove yourself from a course after the drop period has passed. There will be financial repercussions for this withdrawal based on the refund schedule.

The academic consequences for this action include receiving the grade of "W" for the course, which will appear on any unofficial or official transcripts. A grade of "W" will not impact your GPA but does not count as completed credit toward your degree.

How to Withdraw

Students who must withdraw (drop) from a course are responsible for completing the withdrawal (drop) through MyUMUC or by contacting UMUC Asia in writing to request the withdraw. The date a student withdraws in MyUMUC will determine the withdrawal date for refunds. Students who officially withdraw from a course after the schedule adjustment period will receive a mark of W.

GoArmyEd students must follow the procedures and withdraw through the GoArmyEd portal

Tuition Assistance: Students using tuition assistance must contact the center that issued the tuition assistance to discuss the reasons for withdrawing from the class and possible repayment of funds.

The following actions do not constitute formally withdrawing (dropping) from a course and may result in a failing grade and forfeit of any refund:

  • Stopping payment on checks or registration fees
  • Non-payment of tuition charges
  • Never attending or ceasing to attend class(es)
  • Verbally requesting to withdraw from class(es)

When to Withdraw

The following withdrawal schedule applies to UMUC Asia students:

  • On-site classes and weekend seminars: before the final day of the course
  • Hybrid classes: no later than the Friday before the final week of the class
  • Online classes: before 65% of the total days of a class

Students receiving financial aid are strongly encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing to fully understand the impact on their current and future financial aid. Students are responsible for withdrawing themselves from courses.

Students seeking an exception to policy may complete the Request for Exception to UMUC Withdrawal and/or Refund Policy form to have their request considered.
