Dropping Some But Not all Classes

  • You will only receive a 100% fee adjustment if you withdraw prior to the first day of classes.
  • Refer to the current Registration Guide for fee adjustment dates and deadlines for withdrawals after classes begin.
  • Financial aid may be adjusted at any point in the semester.

If you drop some but not all classes before the census date (typically the first 14 calendar days of the semester), your aid may be adjusted based on enrollment status. Most types of financial aid are subject to this rule. For students who are enrolled in courses that are shorter than the full-term, dropping a class may require a Federal Return of Title IV Funds Calculation to be performed. The Return Calculation is based on the premise that students “earn” federal financial aid for each calendar day that they attend classes. This means that the University may be required to return all or part of your aid to the federal government if you drop a course. You should always contact your MT One Stop Enrollment Counselor before dropping any classes.
