Financial Obligation

Please note that a drop, withdrawal or failure to successfully attend and/or complete a course or courses does not absolve a student's financial responsibility for his/her educational expenses. The student is responsible for payment of charges outstanding after the drop or withdrawal is processed and charges are adjusted.
