Tuition reduction for dropped classes is based on the date the add/drop form is received by Student Administrative Services. The postmark date is used if the form is mailed to Student Administrative Services (adult students only).  The reduction rate is valid through the last business day of each reduction period.

Reducing the number of credit hours you are enrolled in each semester may also reduce financial aid.
