Students have the first five days of each
semester (add/drop period) to add and drop
classes without financial penalty. The
Business Office and Financial Aid Office will
establish each student's tuition charges and
financial aid based on the student's
enrollment after the add/drop period. Any
classes dropped after the add/drop period
will continue to count toward total billing
credits and will not result in an adjustment
to tuition charges or financial aid unless
students completely withdraw (drop all
classes) from the university. Classes added
after this date may result in increased tuition
charges as the total billing credits charged
will include all courses not dropped before
or during the add/drop period.
The add/drop period is adjusted for courses
that do not last the full length of a semester
Students who are considering withdrawing
from Grand View University should first
discuss all academic options with their
advisor. Students interested in officially
withdrawing from Grand View University
must initiate the withdrawal by contacting
the Director of Graduate Studies. The
effective date of withdrawal will be
calculated based on the date of contact.
Students who withdraw on or after the first
day of the term and before the 60% point in
time in the semester will receive a prorated
refund in tuition. The amount of the refund
is based on the percentage of the semester
that has not been completed (the number of
calendar days remaining in the semester
divided by the number of calendar days in
the semester). Financial aid will be refunded
to the respective sources (federal, state and
institutional) using the same percentage.
Stated simply, a student who completely
withdraws after completing 20% of the
semester will be charged 20% of tuition
charges and will retain 20% of the financial
aid. Examples of the application of the
refund policy are available upon request at
the Financial Aid Office.
If funds have been released to the student
because of a credit balance on the student's
account at Grand View University, then the
student may be required to repay some or the
entire amount released to the student.
This policy is subject to federal
regulations. Contact the Financial Aid Office
for details and to learn of any changes to this
