Cancellation –Cancellation is when all enrollment is ceased prior to the first official day of classes for the term. No tuition or fees are charged, but other charges related to attending the University are the responsibility of the student.
Drop – A drop is withdrawing from a course while remaining registered for other courses in the term. Dropping a course during the drop/add period may result in a reduced tuition charge, if the drop reduces total hours to a lower tuition rate tier. Dropping a course after the last official day to drop a class during the term will not reduce tuition.
Withdrawal – A withdrawal is dropping all of your courses after the term has started. If the withdrawal is effective during the withdrawal refund period, tuition and fees will be reduced according to the withdrawal refund schedule.

See Important Financial Information for students dropping a class or withdrawing during the summer term.
