Course Withdrawal

After classes begin, students may withdraw from a course by formally requesting a course withdrawal prior to Friday of week seven at 11:59 pm MST. Students who withdraw are responsible for all outstanding financial obligations.

Regarding cancellations, any prepaid fees or tuition are refunded unless the student transfers to another DeVry location.

Withdrawal Refunds

In compliance with applicable requirements, DeVry issues refunds to students who completely withdraw from all classes prior to completing a session. Refund calculations are based on week of withdrawal, the policy of the state in which the student is attending and the policy of the student’s original state of residence. Of the refund amounts calculated, the one most favorable to the student is issued. In all cases, policies are applied to tuition charged for the period of enrollment from which the student withdrew. Examples of refund calculations are available from the Student Finance Office.

Refunds are calculated according to the last documented date of attendance and issued within 30 days of the withdrawal notification date or the date DeVry determines the student is no longer enrolled, whichever is earlier.
