Withdrawal Policies and Procedures

Definition of Complete Withdrawal

The University defines a withdrawal as the termination of your enrollment for any given term.  You are no longer registered for any courses nor have you completed any courses.  You have until Census Date of each term to withdraw from UCCS and receive a 100% refund (this applies to full semester length Main Campus courses only).  Refer to the withdrawal procedures and the date guidelines below for additional information.  Note: Shortened or condensed courses have different add, drop, and refund deadlines.  Review those deadlines here:  Short Course Deadlines
