Complete Withdrawal

Student-Initiated Withdrawal

Students who wish to no longer continue as a student must notify the Student Affairs representative who will then submit a Complete Withdrawal form. 

Institution-Initiated Withdrawal

Dunwoody reserves the right to terminate the enrollment of students. Reasons for termination include, but are not limited to:

  • Non-attendance/no contact
  • Frequent absences or tardiness
  • Academic dishonesty
  • Unsatisfactory academic progress and pace (completion) rate
  • Aggressive, harassing, or discriminatory acts against other students, faculty, or staff
  • Failure to pay tuition by stated deadlines
  • Failure to follow school procedures and policies
  • Failure to comply with safety regulations
  • Intentional damage to school property or theft
  • Insubordinate acts against faculty or other Dunwoody employees

Date of Withdrawal Determination

The date of official withdrawal is determined through the most recent day of attendance (in-person and synchronous) recorded "present" or academic engagement  (asynchronous) in the course. The Financial Aid office utilizes this date to process tuition reimbursements. 

Additional Information Regarding Student Withdrawal 

The following are additional regulations toward account balances and complete withdrawal.

  • An institution receiving financial aid cannot suspend or withdraw a student from class attendance and resources during a period of instruction due to an unpaid student account balance unless the student is eligible for a full tuition and fee refund
  • Period of instruction: academic term, including semesters, trimesters, quarters, interim terms, mini terms, or one or more modules that once a student begins attendance, the student incurs additional tuition and fee charges beyond any current outstanding student account balance
  • Includes clock hour programs if the enrollment agreement has language to only charge tuition by payment period (does not apply to upfront charges for clock hour student)
