To withdraw from Antioch University New England, students must notify the Registrar’s Office in writing, via a Change of Status Form, signed letter, or Antioch email directed to Registrar Office. (To protect your privacy and ensure authenticity of communications from students, email from outside email accounts cannot be accepted.) Withdrawals become effective the date the written notice is received by the Registrar’s Office.
Students who intend to complete the current semester and make their withdrawal effective at the end of the semester, should clearly state this in their written withdrawal notice. All required course work for the current semester must then be submitted to faculty by the last day of the semester — no extensions of this verification deadline will be granted.
Incomplete courses from previous semesters (with or without second extensions filed) will automatically be graded as No Credit (NC)s.
Tuition Refunds after Withdrawal
When a student withdraws after the semester begins, Antioch refunds a portion of the tuition and other fees charged, based on the schedule noted below. In addition, if the student received any financial aid prior to their withdrawal, the student may be liable to Antioch for a portion of the aid received.
Withdrawals received after the first day of the semester become effective on the day the written notification is received by the Registrar’s Office and are subject to the following tuition refund schedule:
|Date Change of Status Form is received by Registrar||Amount of Tuition and Fees Refunded|
|Prior to first day of the semester (as defined by the academic calendar)||100 percent|
|After the first day of the semester||Amount based on percent of semester completed prior to completing 60 percent of the semester|
|After completion of 60 percent of the semester||0 percent|
Return of Federal Funds Policy
The financial aid office recalculates federal financial aid* eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take an interim or a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of the semester. Recalculation is based on the percent of earned aid using the following formula:
Percent earned = Number of days completed up to withdrawal date†/total days in the semester
Federal Financial Aid is returned to the federal government based on the percent of unearned aid using the following formula:
Aid to be returned = (100 percent – percent earned) X (the amount of aid disbursed toward institutional charges).
When aid is returned, the student may owe a balance to the school. The student will be contacted by the Student Accounts Office to make arrangements to pay the balance.
* Federal financial aid includes the Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan, and TEACH Grant.
†Withdrawal Date is defined as the actual date the Registrar’s Office receives written or e-mail notification from the student of their withdrawal.
