Cancel Registration

Students who register and later decide not to attend the University must cancel their registration before the first day of classes. See Academic Calendar for cancellation dates.Failure to cancel registration will result in financial obligation to the University even though the student does not attend class.

To cancel registration prior to the first day of classes:

Complete the Cancellation of Registration Form
