POLICIES

Add/Drop Policy (pertains to schedule changes by students who remain enrolled):

A student may drop some, but not all, classes during the first two weeks of the Spring semester without financial penalty.** After the second week, the student will be responsible for the entire cost of a dropped course unless he or she withdraws completely from UMF.

The last day for a 100% tuition reimbursement for dropping a class is February 8, 2021*. Courses added at any time will result in additional tuition and fee charges.

Tuition and fees are not canceled when a student fails to attend a course; courses are dropped only by filing a properly completed Schedule Change Form with the Student  Records Office or by using MaineStreet as allowed.

Withdrawal (pertains to students who discontinue enrollment in all courses):

Students who are considering withdrawal from the University (after classes have started) should contact the Merrill Center for information concerning the correct withdrawal procedure. Eligible adjustments to charges will be calculated based on the last date of attendance. Withdrawing from ALL classes in the Spring 2021 semester will result in the following adjustment to charges**:

If your withdrawal date is:                                       Your % of Adjustment to Charges is:

On or before February 8, 2021                                                100%

On February 9, 2021 thru February 22, 2021                          75%

On February 23, 2021 thru March 8, 2021                               50%

On March 9, 2021 thru March 22, 2021                                    25%

Withdrawal on or after March 23, 2021                                     0%

*Courses with a different start date from the standard semester start date will have a different drop deadline.  Please check your MaineStreet Student Center for the drop deadlines for each of your classes.  Orientation fees, course fees, health fees, and health insurance fees are not refunded.  Room and board refund percentages are published in the room and board contract.

**Please note that the seven (7) week courses do not follow the same calendar adjustment to charges. For withdrawal/drop calculations from seven (7) week courses please contact the Merrill Center.
