Add/Drop Policy (pertains to schedule changes by students who remain enrolled):
A student may drop some, but not all, classes during the first two weeks of the semester without financial penalty. After the second week, the student will be responsible for the entire cost of a dropped course unless he or she withdraws completely from UMF.
The last day for a 100% tuition reimbursement for dropping a class is January 30, 2017*. Courses added at any time will result in additional tuition and fee charges.
Tuition and fees are not canceled when a student fails to attend a course; courses are dropped only by filing a properly completed Schedule Change Form with the Student Records Office or by using MaineStreet as allowed.
Withdrawal (pertains to students who discontinue enrollment in all courses):
Students who are considering withdrawal from the University (after classes have started) should contact the Merrill Center for information concerning the correct withdrawal procedure. Eligible adjustments to charges will be calculated based on the last date of attendance. Withdrawing from ALL classes in the Spring 2017 semester will result in the following adjustment to charges**:
