A late registration fee is charged during and after late registration.

*** Last day to add a class or drop an individual class without financial penalty — There is no tuition refund for courses dropped after this date, unless a student withdraws from the University (i.e., drops all of the courses for which he or she is registered). In addition to any tuition that is retained, a withdrawal fee is charged whenever a student withdraws.
