CUF will inform students of any changes made and specify alternative curriculum, if necessary.
1. Add/Remove period:
Students may only add or drop registered courses during the first week of classes of an eight-week intensive academic term. This is known as the "add/drop" period and ends at midnight on the eighth day of each academic term. Within this period, students may withdraw from any classes in which they are registered and receive a full refund of tuition for those classes. In addition, withdrawal during the "add/drop" period will not result in a grade being issued and will not affect the student's GPA or SAP.
2. Course Withdrawal:
A student who wishes to withdraw from a course may do so, without affecting the student's GPA or SAP, during the period ending at midnight on the eighth day of the eight-week academic term. This is known as the "add/drop" period. If a student withdraws after the add/drop period has ended, but before the end of the sixth (6th) week of classes, the student will be assigned a grade of "W" in that course. This withdrawal will not affect the student's GPA, but will be counted for SAP calculations. A student who fails to comply with the withdrawal procedure will be considered to have failed that course and will be assigned a grade of "F", which will affect both the GPA and SAP computation.
3. Administrative Withdrawal of Courses:
CUF reserves the right to withdraw courses from those offered in a particular eight-week academic term due to low enrollment in a particular course or unexpected circumstances. If students withdraw from courses as a result of the administration's adjustment, a refund will be issued in accordance with CUF's refund policy.
4. Withdrawal of Registration:
Any student who decides to withdraw completely and officially from CUF is expected to notify the Registrar's Office, in writing, prior to or immediately following the date of withdrawal from classes. Failure to comply with this procedure may cause the student to receive grades unnecessarily. If applicable, tuition will be refunded in accordance with the refund policy.
