WITHDRAWAL FROM NSU Students wishing to withdraw from NSU must contact the Registrar’s Office. Self-Service Banner will not allow students to withdraw from all classes as special processing is required. Withdrawal forms authorizing honorable dismissal are obtained from this office or found on their website. Students may not withdraw from school after the 70% point of the semester or class. Veterans and dependents must consult with the proper authorities if they want their educational benefits to continue up to the date of withdrawal. Students who voluntarily withdraw from NSU may be entitled to a partial refund of tuition and other fees. Refunds to students who received financial aid will be applied to the financial aid programs from which the student received assistance. If a student notifies the Registrar’s Office of their withdrawal prior to the start of the term, the student is canceled and no record appears on their transcript. If withdrawal is initiated between the start of the term and census date, a notation appears on the transcript, noting the withdrawal date. Withdrawals initiated after census, through the 70% point result in classes appearing on the transcript with ‘WW’ grades. GPA is not affected. An administrative withdrawal can be processed for non-attendance, disciplinary action, or non-payment of financial obligations. The student will be notified by the Registrar before an administrative withdrawal is processed. For more information on withdrawal from NSU, call the Registrar’s Office, 626-2012.
