Withdrawal from Graduate Course or Program

Owner: Academic Dean's Office
Pertains to: Graduate students
Description: Hamline University has adopted the following policy regarding withdrawal from a graduate course or program.
Details: A. From Courses: Refer to the current academic calendar at www.hamline.edu/academiccalendar for adding/dropping/withdrawal deadlines, or call Student Administrative Services at 651-523-3000 if you have questions. If a student drops or withdraws from a class, the effective day of the drop is the day the completed form is returned to the Student Administrative Services office (East Hall 113), not when the student stopped attending class. The amount of tuition owed is calculated from the effective day of the drop. A student who stops attending a course without dropping it will continue to be billed for tuition charges.

(Note: MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults students follow the above for non-residency terms. During residency terms, students may withdraw up to 10 days prior to the start of the residency and owe no tuition. If withdrawing fewer than 10 days before the start of the residency, 100% of the tuition will be owed.)

B. From Programs:
Any student who wishes to withdraw from a program must notify the program office in writing.
