Not Attending/Withdrawal From the University

Official Withdrawal Procedures


 

You may discontinue your registration for the term by withdrawing from the term. (You need not withdraw from the term if you have never been registered for the term.) If you withdraw from the term, you need not reapply for admission to enroll for subsequent terms unless the term from which you withdraw is your first term at Ohio State and your fees were never paid for that term.

If you HAVE NOT PAID fees for a term in which you registered for classes: notify your college of enrollment immediately so that your space will be available for another student.

If you HAVE PAID fees for a term in which you registered for classes: notify your college of enrollment immediately so that official withdrawal procedures can be initiated. Please note that if you have used financial aid to pay fees, any refund of fees generated by your withdrawal may be required to repay the federal financial aid programs (see "What Happens to Your Financial Aid When You. . . Withdraw from All or Part of Your Course Load).

Unofficial Withdrawal

Simply deciding not to attend your courses does NOT automatically cancel your registration, nor does stopping payment on your check after you have paid fees. You remain responsible for all tuition, fees, and penalties. You must follow the proper withdrawal procedures to withdraw from the term.
