Complete Withdraw from New River Community and Technical College
Last Updated on Monday, 29 August 2016 10:58 | Written by Sparks, Karen L. | | | Hits: 39159
Any student whose credit hours drop to "0" or who wishes to leave New River must complete a Request for Withdrawal Form. These forms are only located on campus. The signatures must be obtained by the student; the form should be taken to the Business Office or the Registrar's Office.
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.
Please note that being eligible for a refund does not necessarily mean a refund in the form of a check sent to the student - but rather it is the amount of tuition that is removed from the overall bill. Withdrawing from the college may cause a balance owed from the student to the College and the student is responsible for paying this balance.
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 following schedule. Special fees will not be refunded.
The following schedule for calculating refunds shall be adhered to for those students who withdraw from the institution via the official withdrawal process and who are eligible to receive refunds:
Fall 2016 Refund Schedule
Prior to the start of the semester (Before 08/22/2016)
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.
Return of Title IV Refunds
Financial Aid recipients who fail to withdraw before 60% of the semester has been completed 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.

The verification form form gives permission for the Registrar's Office to send a letter out verifing a student's enrollment for a specific term to the contact information the student provides on the form.
Before a letter is sent, the student must be registered in a class or classes and marked paid by the Business Office for that term. Enrollment verifications cannot be processed for a term that has not yet started; verification forms recieved early will be held until after classes for that term begins.
To request an enrollment verification letter, please print the verification form or complete the form at any of our campus locations.
If you need verification of your entire academic history or confirmation of a degree or certificate recieved, you will need to request a transcript instead.
Student Loan Deferment Requests
New River Community and Technical College sends a report electronically to the National Student Clearinghouse about two weeks after classes begin each semester. This information is then transmitted to the to the National Student Loan Data System for Students (NSLDS) and you will be listed on the report if you are enrolled as a paid student. This means that generally you will not need to do a paper deferment request.
If your loan servicer still needs to receive a paper copy of your deferment request, you may submit a completed deferment request to our office at that time. Please ensure that you have included the page with contact information for your loan servicer to prevent delays in processing your request.
Third Party Educational Verifications
The National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) is now our authorized agent for providing degree and enrollment verifications. If you are an employer or background screening firm requesting this information please visit www.degreeverify.org. Verifications requested through DegreeVerify are generally returned to you immediately. Alternatively, the student may request a transcript instead.
