Course Drop & Withdrawal Refund Policies
Need to Drop a Course or Withdraw (drop all courses)? Please read and follow the information below to insure that you are not penalized academically or financially.
- Course Drop or Reducation of Class Schedule: Dropping one or more individual courses while remaining enrolled in at least one course during a given semester.
- Withdrawal: Dropping all courses in a given semester. May require readmission.
Financial Aid Recipients:
Financial Aid recipients contemplating drop/withdrawal should review the FinAid withdrawal policies. Under certain circumstances drop and/or withdrawal from courses will result in required repayment of funds received.
Course Drop Information and Procedure:
Students who wish to drop individual courses should do so through their AppalNET accounts. University policy cites that if students reduce their class schedules (drop courses) during the Drop/Add Period, 100% of the difference in tuition and fees between the original and revised schedules will be automatically credited to their accounts and available for refund. Students who reduce their class schedules (drop courses) after the Drop/Add period will not be eligible for a refund. You can see Drop/Add dates for the term on the Registration and Academic Calendars on the Registrar's Office Calendars page.
Effective Fall Semester 1995, an undergraduate student may drop a cumulative total of no more than four (4) courses after the published drop-add period. ("Cumulative total" is defined as four  drops over the student's undergraduate career at Appalachian, excluding summer term.)
Please follow the procedure outlined on the Registrar’s Office Withdrawal Information page.
