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 Fall 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 September 11, 2023*. 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 Fall 2023 semester will result in the following adjustment to charges**:
If your withdrawal date is: Your % of Adjustment to Charges is:
On or before September 11, 2023 100%
On September 12, 2023 thru September 25, 2023 75%
On September 26, 2023 thru October 9, 2023 50%
On October 10, 2023 thru October 23, 2023 25%
Withdrawal on or after October 24, 2023 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, parking permit fees, and payment plan fees are not refunded. Room and board refund percentages are published in the room and board contract.
**Please note that courses shorter than 12 weeks do not follow the same calendar adjustment to charges. For withdrawal/drop calculations from courses shorter than 12 weeks please contact the Merrill Center.
