Complete Withdraw from New River Community and Technical College

Withdrawing From the College

Any student whose credit hours drop to "0" or who wishes to leave New River CTC must complete a Request for Withdrawal Form. These forms are only located on campus. The required signatures must be obtained by the student.

Students who officially withdraw from all courses for which they have registered during a semester in the academic year will be eligible for a full refund if they withdraw prior to the start of the semester or prior to the first day of class with a delayed start. It is important to withdraw before the semester begins if you change your mind about taking courses for a particular semester. Students are responsible for adhering to deadlines, available in the academic calendar.


Students who officially withdraw from all courses after the "full refund " period described above shall be eligible to receive a refund of regular tuition and fees in accordance with the schedule below. Fees are not refundable.

 Should the percentage of calculation identify a particular day, the entire day will be included in the higher refund period. All refunds are to be calculated from the first day of classes of a given semester or term. Every student who registers incurs a financial obligation to the College. Exceptions to this policy resulting from extenuating circumstances must be approved by the Registrar or designee before a refund may be processed.

Please note that being eligible for a refund does not mean a refund in the form of a check sent to the student - it is the amount of tuition that is removed from the overall bill. Financial Aid awards are adjusted accordingly with the refund schedule. New River CTC does not process partial refunds for withdrawing from individual courses.

Withdrawing from the college may cause a balance owed from the student to the College and the student is responsible for paying this balance.


Return of Title IV Financial Aid

Any student recieving Title IV financial aid who withdraws during the refund period listed above are subject to having all or a portion of their financial aid adjusted. This may lead to a student owing a balance to the institution and the student is responsible for the balance on their account.

Not attending classes in which you are registered can have negative academic and financial consequences and may lead to you being administratively withdrawn from the course(s.) Financial Aid recipients who fail to withdraw before 60% of the semester has been completed or choose not to attend courses may be required to repay a portion of the federal aid received. Repayments are based on the number of days a student has been enrolled in classes.
