Course Drops and Withdrawals

Students in Distance Learning Programs, please refer to myonline.bradley.edu for the policies and deadlines specific to your program.

Mini Courses (All Semesters)

For courses that meet less than a full semester (i.e. 8 weeks or 1 0 weeks), full tuition will be refunded for classes dropped on or before the first day of the term. A 50% refund is available for a class dropped within three days of the first class session. No refunds will be available for classes dropped four days after the first class session or later.

*Partial Drops (Fall and Spring Semester)

If you drop one or more classes (reduction in hours), but remain registered for at least one course, the full tuition will be refunded for full semester classes (i.e. 15 weeks) dropped by the end of the second week of classes, ending September 10, 2021 for fall and February 4, 2022 for spring. There are no refunds for a class dropped after these dates. Course fees are not refundable.

*Complete Official Withdrawal (Interim and Summer)

A full refund, less $15 registration fee will be given if a student drops all hours on or before the first day of the term. A 50% refund will be issued if a student drops all hours within the first four days of the term. After that, no refund will be available for dropped classes.

Complete Withdrawal From The University

When a student withdraws from all classes, after completing registration, but before the official beginning day of University classes (August 25, 2021 or January 19, 2022), a full refund less a registration fee of $50 will be made for first semester freshmen and part-time students. All other full-time students will be charged a registration fee of $100.

Dropping all classes is considered a complete withdrawal from the University. If a full-time student decides to withdraw from the University, the student must contact Student Services. Appropriate documentation (Official Student Withdrawal Form) will be completed with that office. This documentation is provided to the following offices: Financial Services, Registrar's Office and the Financial Assistance Office.
