Withdrawal Policy

Complete Withdrawal from all Course Work

Students wishing to withdraw from the University must follow the current withdrawal procedures.  To withdraw from The University of Findlay, students must obtain a withdrawal form in The Oiler Success Center.  This form must be completed along with an exit interview when the necessary signatures are obtained.  Students who do not go through this formal withdrawal process may be charged a significant amount of money for tuition, fees and other costs. Once the session has started, the student is only eligible for a partial refund of tuition. Fees are non-refundable. Failure to attend class(es) does not constitute an official drop or withdrawal. 

Reduction in Number of Credit Hours

It is the student's responsibility to contact his/her adviser or the Office of the Registrar and OFFICIALLY drop the class(es) before the start of the session in order to receive a 100 percent refund. Once the session has started, the student is only eligible for a partial refund of tuition.  Fees are non-refundable. Undergraduate students who add/drop class(es) but remain between 12-18 hours will not be entitled to a refund. Students should always retain a copy of all transactions related to adding or withdrawing from classes. Failure to attend class(es) does not constitute an official drop or withdrawal. It is recommended that a student drop and add courses of equal credit hours within the same business day.

Because there are many alternate calendars among the academic programs, it is the student's responsibility to contact the Business Office at 419-434-4690 or businessoffice@findlay.edu for dates and refund percentages not specifically listed within the Tuition Refund Policy.

If a student ceases attending classes without notice, the withdrawal date will be the student's last date of attendance or participation in a course-related activity, as documented by his/her University instructors.
