Withdrawal from the University

A student who wishes to withdraw from Walsh University, thereby discontinuing enrollment, must secure the signatures of all instructors on the "Change of Registration" form available in the Student Service Center. University withdrawal is not official until this form is signed, returned and processed by the Office of the Registrar. The University’s refund policy and the date the signed form is returned to the Office of the Registrar will determine tuition refunds. Refer to the "Withdrawal Policy" in the specific program section for an explanation of assigned grades and withdrawal deadline. A change in registration fee will not be assessed for a complete withdrawal from the University.

Registration for classes creates a contract for payment of tuition, fees, and charges. A student choosing to terminate this contract with Walsh University must officially withdraw during the first 6 business days from the first day of class within any part of the term in the fall or spring semester; withdrawal from a summer session class must be made by the first business day or earlier. Failure to officially withdraw within these refund periods obligates the student to pay all charges in full. Withdrawal must be made in writing through the Student Service Center and must be signed by the student. Nonattendance to class or notification to a professor does not constitute an official withdrawal. Withdrawal from a class or from the University on or before the sixth business day will cancel all financial obligations to the University.

Fall and Spring Semesters

Six (6) business days or earlier

100% of tuition

Seven (7) business days or later

no refund

Summer Sessions

One (1) business day or earlier

100% of tuition

Two (2) business days or later

no refund

If a student withdraws from the University beyond the withdrawal date and therefore does not receive an adjustment to tuition, the University may still be required to return a portion of the federal and/or state financial aid to the appropriate programs. Any balance created on the student’s account as a result of this transaction is the responsibility of the student.

Students considering a withdrawal are encouraged to first consult with a financial aid advisor located in the Student Service Center.

If a student withdraws or reduces the number of credit hours after the refund period for reasons beyond his or her control, a detailed letter may be submitted to the Fees and Charges Appeals Committee explaining the extenuating circumstances.

The University will not grant a refund of charges for any withdrawal or reduction in hours beyond the established deadline without an approval from the Fees and Charges Appeals Committee.

Detailed appeal letters documenting the extenuating circumstances can be addressed to Walsh University, Fees and Appeals Committee, Finance Department, Attn.: Jean Massie, 2020 East Maple Street, North Canton, Ohio 44720.

Suspension or Expulsion

The University will follow the Withdrawal Policy stated above in the event suspension or expulsion occurs. Students suspended or expelled after the refund periods will be obligated to pay all charges in full.
