Withdrawal from the University
Occasionally there are circumstances that cause a student to withdraw from the University. Please contact Enrollment Services staff for assistance. You will need to formally withdraw from the University by dropping your classes through MySOU or at Enrollment Services in Britt Hall. The Enrollment Services Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays (541-552-6600, firstname.lastname@example.org). When preparing to withdraw, please be aware that MySOU is occasionally unavailable for system maintenance. The effective date of the withdrawal is the date the withdrawal is made through MySOU or by visiting the Enrollment Services Center.
Please consider carefully. Withdrawal may necessitate repayment of financial aid. Refunds will be pro-rated accordingly. Monetary credits are calculated from the date of receipt of the official withdrawal, not from the date a student stopped attending classes.
For more information about withdrawal from the University and tuition/fees credits, please visit the Financial Aid - Refunds and Repayment and the Student Accounts - Policies and Procedures websites. Students withdrawing from any or all courses may be entitled to a refund of fees paid. Refunds are calculated using the published Oregon University System refund schedule. Students are responsible for reviewing the published refund schedule. Your refund, if any, will be applied first to all debts due Southern Oregon University, the Oregon University System, and financial aid programs. Tuition credits will be applied back to financial aid at the point that you completely withdrew from school. Any tuition credits remaining after applying proceeds back to financial aid programs will be used to offset any other charges you have incurred. Any student in good standing is entitled to honorable dismissal at any time through Monday of the last week of the term. Students withdrawing after the end of the fourth week and through Monday of the last week will receive either a WP (withdrawn-passing) or a WF (withdrawn-failing) in each of their courses. Students who leave campus after Monday of the last week will be held responsible for grades in all courses.
Upon request, interested students can obtain a copy of the annual Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA) report. This report informs you of the university's commitment to providing equitable athletic opportunities for our men and women students.
