Cancel or Withdraw Summer Enrollment

Many students become confused by the difference between “canceling” and “withdrawing” and how these affect tuition charges and grades. Cancellation is the term OU uses if a student drops all classes before classes begin. Canceling enrollment removes all tuition charges and all record of enrollment. No grades are recorded. Complete Withdrawal occurs when a student drops all classes after classes begin. When complete withdrawal occurs before the tuition obligation deadline, there are no tuition charges. When the student withdraws after the deadline, the student will be charged full tuition rates.*

*Federal regulations required the First Time Title IV Attendees (students receiving federally guaranteed financial aid for the first time at OU) will be charged on a different schedule if they withdraw from school after classes begin. Refund schedules for students in this category are available on request.

Undergraduate Students - Summer

  • Final day to completely withdraw from a four-week course is the third day
  • Final day to completely withdraw from an eight-week course is the fifth day

Prior to these deadlines, undergraduate students requesting a Complete Withdrawal should contact Enrollment Services at enroll@ou.edu or (405) 325-4147 to request a complete withdrawal. After the deadline, undergraduate students requesting a Complete Withdrawal must complete an Online Petition for Complete Withdrawal which will be sent to the Academic Advising Lead of the college in which the student is enrolled for consideration. The College Academic Advising Lead will contact the student directly to discuss the implications and feasibility of withdrawing, as well as any alternative academic options that may exist. Documentation of extreme extenuating circumstances will be required. When possible, students are expected to continue attending classes until such time the Petition for Complete Withdrawal is approved. Once the petition has been approved for a complete withdrawal for the semester, students will receive the grade of “W” for all courses.
