Withdrawing from a Course or from the University

Should you have any questions regarding canceling or withdrawing from a course or the University, please contact The Depot at 325-674-2300.


I. Withdrawing from a Course:

After the drop/add period, students must officially withdraw from a course by initiating a withdrawal form. The student's advisor must sign the withdrawal form for individual courses.  The student must return the signed form to The Depot (located in the Campus Center). A withdrawal grade for the course will appear on the transcript. A fee of $10 will be charged for processing a withdrawal from a course after the drop/add period.  Tuition refunds will be made according to the Refund Tuition Schedule in the catalog. (Days indicated are days during the term, excluding Saturday and Sunday.) The last day for students to withdraw from a course is the Friday of the 12th week of a long term.

 
II. Withdrawing or Canceling from the University:

Those of us who work on this campus are always sorry to see a student leave ACU. Our goal, from the time a student begins school, is to ensure he/she graduates from ACU.  We know that there are many reasons why students leave, some unpreventable, but hope that you will allow us the opportunity to help you if we can.  If you are unsure where to get the assistance you need, please contact the Office of Student Retention at 325-674-5302.

A.   Withdrawing during the Semester: 

Any student choosing to withdraw from the University during a semester that has already begun will need to visit the Student Life Office (located on the first floor of McKinzie - west entrance) to complete the withdrawal process.  Failure to complete the withdrawal process may result in a hold on transcripts, failure to release loans, and other possible financial implications.  A student’s official withdrawal from ACU cannot be processed until all appropriate documents are submitted.  After a student withdraws from the University, meals will be refunded on a pro rata basis.  No refunds for meals or housing will be made for absences while enrolled in the University.  Any refund for tuition or housing will be based on the refund schedule established in the university catalog. (Days indicated are days during the term, excluding Saturday and Sunday.)

B.   Canceling for the Following Semester:

Should a student decide not to return to ACU the following semester (but will be completing the current semester), he/she will need to visit The Depot (located in the Campus Center) to complete the official cancellation process.  Failure to complete the cancellation process may result in a hold on transcripts, failure to release loans, and other possible financial implications.  A student’s official cancellation of enrollment for the next semester at ACU cannot be processed until all appropriate documents are submitted.


Note: Prospective students or future students who wish to cancel their enrollment prior to attending ACU should contact their Admissions Counselor in the Admissions Office (1-800-460-6228).
