General College Policies and Procedures
Withdrawal from the College
Students who have early registered for a term or half term but who subsequently decide not to return to the University should notify the Office of the Registrar, 1010 LS&A Building, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1382, fax (734) 763-9053. To avoid a disenrollment fee, notification of intention to disenroll must be received before the first day of classes.
Students who wish to withdraw once classes have begun should contact the Academic Advising Center, 1255 Angell Hall, phone (734) 764-0332. Students who withdraw within the first three weeks of the term (two weeks for a half-term) are assessed a $50 disenrollment fee plus an $80 registration fee ($40 for a half-term), but the registration will not appear on the student's record. Students who withdraw between the fourth and sixth week of a full term or in the third week of a half-term are assessed 50% tuition and the registration appears on the transcript with a "withdrew" notation. These dates are posted for each term on the following website: http://www.umich.edu/~regoff/termwd.html. Full tuition is assessed after these dates.
After the sixth week of classes during a full term (third week in a half term), an appointment must be made with a member of the Academic Standards Board. Students who withdraw after the middle of a term may be requried obtain permission from the Academic Standards Board before continuing in the College.
