Procedures to Withdraw from a Class or the University

Withdrawing from California University of Pennsylvania

Making the decision to withdraw from the university can be difficult and we want you to be able to make an informed decision.  Please review the following definitions of "Withdrawal" so that you can make the best choice on which office/person you need to contact. You will then need to contact the office or person listed below to complete the withdrawal process. Upon contacting the proper office or person you will be walked through the process and if necessary counseled on the effects of withdrawing. Students seeking to withdraw from all courses should carefully consider such an important decision and its impact on their academic career and financial aid status.

If you are receiving federal aid, be aware that a total withdraw will likely result in your financial aid being adjusted and reduced. As a result, you would then owe payment to the University. It can also reduce your future eligibility for financial aid. Consult this link; Financial Aid for more information. If you are unsure about how a total withdrawal may impact your financial aid or if your reason for withdrawal is due to financing, please contact the Financial Aid Office before proceeding, financialaid@calu.edu or 724-938-4415.

Please review the criteria for drop/add tuition refunds from the Bursar Office to see what your financial obligation to the University would be after your withdrawal. Please contact the Bursar's Office if you have any questions regarding your bill after withdrawal, bursarsoffice@calu.edu or 724-938-4431.

 

There are several types of withdrawals, please read each carefully and then contact the corresponding department to complete the withdrawal process:
