How to Withdraw

Students who must drop or withdraw from a course are responsible for completing the drop or withdrawal  through MyUMGC or by visiting their local UMGC Europe field office. The date a student drops or withdraws in MyUMGC will determine the date for refunds. If you drop a course during the drop period, you will qualify for a full refund or tuition.

If you officially withdraw from a course during the withdrawal period, you will be refunded a portion of the tuition, as determined by the date of withdrawal and the refund schedule. Your record will reflect a W for the class. 

Army students must contact the staff at their local UMGC Europe office for assistance to drop/withdraw from a course until 8 March when ArmyIgnitED opens. Please check our Getting Started with ArmyIgnitED for updates on the new process starting in March 2021.

Tuition Assistance: Students using tuition assistance must contact the center that issued the tuition assistance to discuss the reasons for withdrawing from the class and possible repayment of funds.

The following actions do not constitute formally withdrawing (dropping) from a course and may result in a failing grade and forfeit of any refund:

  • Stopping payment on checks or registration fees
  • Non-payment of tuition charges
  • Never attending or ceasing to attend class(es)
  • Verbally requesting to withdraw from class(es)

When to Withdraw

The following withdrawal schedule applies to UMGC Europe students:

  • On-site classes and weekend seminars: before the final day of the course
  • Hybrid classes: no later than the Sunday--9 days prior to the end date of the class
  • Online classes: before 65% of the total days of a class

Students receiving financial aid are strongly encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing to fully understand the impact on their current and future financial aid. Students are responsible for withdrawing themselves from courses.

Students seeking an exception to policy may complete the Request for Exception to UMGC Withdrawal and/or Refund Policy form to have their request considered.
