Dropping a Course

A Drop is defined as dropping one or more courses while remaining enrolled in other courses. A drop is always a 100% refund (drops are never prorated) if it is done before creating an academic record.

There will be NO REFUND for dropped courses after the last day to drop a course with a refund as listed in the appropriate academic calendar. You are considered dropping a course only if you are still enrolled in at least one course at UTPB after you drop.

Withdrawing from a Course

A Withdrawal is defined as dropping ALL courses. Drops and withdrawals become effective the date the written request, with all required signatures, is received by the Registrar's Office. 

Students who withdraw are responsible for requesting refunds for housing and meal plan payments. These items are not automatically credited back to students upon withdrawal. Students must contact Student Housing once they withdraw in order to be considered for a refund for these fees.

Please note that 16-week courses and 8-week courses have different withdrawal refund schedules and the last days to drop without creating a record.
