Before You Withdraw

Prior to withdrawing from your program, you are encouraged to explore options that may support your personal and academic success.

Withdraw Deadlines

If you choose to withdraw, you must do so formally by the specified deadlines in the Academic Calendar to avoid academic and financial penalties. View General Refund Information.

If you intend to withdraw, you must fill out an e-form via MyHumber (select Student, Registration then Records/Registration Inquiries). Choose the "I would like to withdraw from my program" option under "How can we help you?".

Important: Not attending classes or notifying only your professor or Program Coordinator of your intent to withdraw are NOT acceptable methods for formally withdrawing from a class or program.
