WITHDRAWAL POLICY

SCHOOL of HEALTH and HUMAN NUTRITION

(Semester Based Programs)

 Official Withdrawal

A student who withdraws from one or more courses after the enrollment modification period (add/drop deadline) will be issued a grade of “W”. Course withdrawals will count as attempted credit hours when measuring the quantitative standards (pace of completion and maximum time frame) of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), but will not be included in the GPA. A student who withdraws from all attempted credit hours during the student’s first period of enrollment with HUHS will also obtain an undefined GPA. An undefined GPA is equivalent to a 0.00 GPA.

If a student wishes to officially withdraw from HUHS should complete the following steps:

  1. Students are required to notify the University of their intent to withdraw using the Withdrawal Form on the website. The withdrawal form has a section for the student to indicate of his/her intent to withdraw from a course, degree or diploma program. The official date of withdrawal will be the date the school receives the student notification.
  2. The Director of Financial Aid will review the student’s financial aid and process any R2T4 calculations and will send any required notifications. Any required refunds will be returned to the federal financial aid programs prior to processing institutional refunds.
  3. Institutional refunds, if any, will be calculated according to the stated University policy as outlined in the Financial Information section of the catalog.
  4. All remaining balances, subject to any offset for refund, must be paid in full at the time of withdrawal.
  5. The withdrawal will become official when the student receives final written notification by the Registrar. The student will receive a “W” for the final grade.
  6. The Director of Financial Aid will send a Schedule Confirmation Letter to the student for any remaining modules in the term. The completed form must be returned to the Financial Aid Office or the student will be considered withdrawn from the term.

 Unofficial/Institutional Withdrawal

Students in violation of the Attendance policy will be institutionally withdrawn from the course. See the Attendance policy at https://www.huhs.edu/attendance-policy/ for further details.

If a student chooses not to attend the first week, he/she will be institutionally withdrawn from the course or if at any point during the module a student fails to submit assignments for more than 14 consecutive days, the student will be institutionally withdrawn. The procedure is as follows:

  1. The Director of Financial Aid will notify the student of the institutional withdrawal.
  2. The Director of Financial Aid will complete the Institutional Withdrawal Form and submit the form to the Registrar for processing.
  3. The Director of Financial Aid will review the student’s financial aid and process any R2T4 calculations and will send any required notifications. Any required refunds will be returned to the federal financial aid programs prior to processing institutional refunds.
  4. Institutional refunds, if any, will be calculated according to the stated University policy as outlined in the Financial Information section of the catalog.
  5. All remaining balances, subject to any offset for refund, must be paid in full at the time of withdrawal.
  6. The student who is institutionally withdrawn from a course will receive a “WF” for the final grade. For the purpose of Satisfactory Academic Progress evaluations, a “WF” will be counted as 0 GPA points in the GPA calculation; additionally, a “WF” will impact both pace of completion and maximum timeframe calculations.
  7. The Director of Financial Aid will send a Schedule Confirmation Letter to the student for any remaining modules in the term. The completed form must be returned to the Financial Aid Office or the student will be considered withdrawn from the term.
