  • Student-Initiated Withdrawals (Dropping all classes)

    Withdrawing is the process of being removed from all classes enrolled in during an individual session that is currently in progress. Students are not able to remove themselves from all of their classes in an individual session, even if they are only enrolled in one class. In order to be withdrawn, students need to complete withdrawal paperwork through the Dean of Students Office. 

    Prior to the first day of classes, a student may be removed from all of their classes by completing a cancellation through their myUNT account. Information about the cancellation process can be found here: https://registrar.unt.edu/registration/canceling-classes. If a student does not want to be removed from all of their courses within an individual session, this is considered a class drop. More information about dropping individual courses is located here: https://registrar.unt.edu/registration/dropping-class

  • Withdrawal Considerations
    • Refund deadlines: The State of Texas sets refund deadlines, which determine which portion of cost of the semester tuition and fees the student is considered responsible for upon withdrawal. Information about refund deadlines is located here: https://sfs.unt.edu/class-drop-and-withdrawal-refunds
    •  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: Students that have scholarships may want to email scholarships@unt.edu to determine if their scholarship eligibility will be impacted by a withdrawal.
    • VA/TA 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. 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.
