Any student wishing to withdraw from Lindenwood University should submit a completed withdrawal form (with the signatures of the instructors for each of the courses the student attended and the signature of the student’s advisor) to the Academic Services Office, located in the lower level of Roemer Hall, between the hours of 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Fridays.
Notes: (1) Calculations of the return of Title IV aid for withdrawals occurring during the first two weeks of a term will be based on the last date of attendance for the term in which the student withdraws. Students who initiate a withdrawal from the University after the first two weeks of the term will be eligible for a refund of Title IV aid based on the date that the withdrawal form was submitted to Academic Services. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point of the term will not be entitled to a return of Title IV aid.
(2) Any student who earns the grade of AF in all coursework within a term will be considered unofficially withdrawn for that and will be subject to a Title IV refund calculation. Based on this calculation a portion of Title IV aid may be unearned and required to be returned to the appropriate agency.
(3) No refund for housing charges will be made for a term after the student signs either a New Student Housing Application or a Returning Student Housing Application. Application, activity, lab, miscellaneous fees, and room reservation deposits are nonrefundable, except as indicated under the Housing Deposit section of this catalog.
(4) Board charges are pro-rated on a weekly basis from the date of withdrawal.
Appeals of withdrawal and refund calculations or other institutional charges from students and parents who feel that their individual circumstances warrant exceptions from published policy should be addressed to the Chief Business Officer (CBO), located in Roemer Hall. In order to appeal a decision, the student must submit a written request to the CBO including any evidence that would substantiate the appeal.
