Don’t assume the school will run a cancellation process absolving you of any charges. You must withdraw from your classes prior to the first day of the semester to avoid tuition and fee drop charges. Any student that does not officially withdraw from classes prior to the start of the term is subject to being charged based upon the University’s academic calendar. If you withdraw for the semester and receive a book advance (refund), you will most likely have to return those funds to the school.
