  • Withdrawal Considerations
    • Tuition Adjustments: If a student withdraws from a course/courses, their tuition may be adjusted. Please review Student Accounting's page for important dates: https://sfs.unt.edu/tuition-adjustments
    •  Financial Aid: Withdrawing from a session may impact a student’s federal financial aid eligibility, which means that a student may owe back a portion of the financial aid that they received upon withdrawal. Information about withdrawing with financial aid is located here: https://financialaid.unt.edu/withdrawing 
    • Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP): In order to continue receiving federal financial aid, students need to be meet SAP. SAP requires students to complete at least 67% of classes attempted, and withdrawing from a session negatively impacts a student’s completion rate. More information about SAP is located here: https://financialaid.unt.edu/sap 
    • Scholarships: Withdrawing from a session may impact a student’s scholarship/grant eligibility, which means that a student may owe back a portion of the aid that they received upon withdrawal. There is also potential for an impact on future aid eligibility. If you have any questions about your scholarship eligibility, you can find contact information for the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office at the right of this webpage https://scrappysays.unt.edu/s/
    • VA Benefits: Veteran/Dependent or Active Duty Service Member using VA or TA benefits for the term may want to contact the Student Veteran Services office to determine any potential implications. Contact information for the Student Veteran Services office can be found here: https://studentaffairs.unt.edu/student-veteran-services/contact. 
    • International Students: International students will need to contact the International Office in order to speak with an advisor regarding any potential Visa implications of withdrawal: https://international.unt.edu/content/schedule-appointment-isss. The Dean of Students Office cannot process an international student’s withdrawal without the permission of the International Office.
        If you have any questions or concerns about any of these implications, please contact our office at DOSWithdrawals@unt.edu, or call 940-565-3633 to schedule a meeting with a staff member. We can help you determine how these implications may impact you and answer your questions.
