Withdrawing from PLU

Withdrawing from all your classes prior to the start of the semester will result in a total cancellation of university charges (except the tuition deposit)  and financial aid for the term. Withdrawing after the start of a term prorates your university charges, based on the official withdrawal date from the university. Once 60% of the semester has elapsed, there is no tuition reduction or refund and all financial aid already disbursed will be considered to have been fully utilized. To establish the official withdrawal date, you must complete the withdrawal process with the Office of the Registrar.
