Drop or Withdraw with Tuition Refund
Engineering for Professionals students are expected to follow the drop and withdrawal deadlines outlined on the Academic Calendar. In exceptional cases, a Drop or Withdraw with Tuition Refund may be granted based on documented requests in which extenuating circumstances significantly impaired the student’s ability to complete the term, and a full or partial tuition refund may be provided. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, debilitating illness, family hardships, or other significant life changes (e.g., death in student’s immediate family, care for seriously ill family member, military deployment, etc.).
To be considered for a Drop or Withdraw with Tuition Refund, you must complete the Drop or Withdraw with Tuition Refund request form and attach any documentation to support your request (e.g., medical documentation, death certificate, or obituary, etc.). The request will be reviewed by the associate dean or designee who may consult with the instructor of record. You will be notified of the outcome of your request via email to your @jhu.edu address within 10 university business days. If approved after the semester’s drop deadline, the mark of “W” will be recorded as the official grade for the course in lieu of a letter grade.
Drop or Withdraw with Tuition Refund requests and supporting documentation are retained by the Office of Academic Affairs for at least five years and filed separately from the student’s other records to maintain confidentiality. Any questions regarding the Drop or Withdraw with Tuition Refund can be directed to EP’s Academic Affairs Manager, Heather Stewart.
The withdrawal/audit deadline for fall 2022 is November 4 (ninth week).
