It is your responsibility to meet the withdrawal regulations and deadlines in order to be properly withdrawn without an administrative failure or loss of eligible refund.

Notice of withdrawal to any office other than the Office of the Registrar does not constitute sufficient notice for refund/credit purposes.  The refund policy is strictly enforced to ensure fairness to all.
