Cancel/Withdraw/Drop Information

We are aware that circumstances may keep you from taking courses in our program.  Because our courses do not follow the standard University schedule, there are strict policies in place for cancelling, dropping, and withdrawing from courses.  These policies also affect the refund, if any, that you will receive.

If you are unclear as to which situation applies to you, please reach out to your advisor by emailing imba-support@illinois.edu

Terminology

  • Cancellation is when student signs up for courses and decides they no longer want to attend the University for that term. You may cancel registration before the first day of instruction for the semester provided you have neither attended any classes nor received any related student services. 100% of tuition and fee charges are relieved if cancellation is requested by the semester deadline.

  • Withdrawal means dropping all courses for the entire term after the first date of instruction. Once you have attended a class or used campus services, you may not cancel you registration. A withdrawal from the University must be processed.
  • Drop means dropping one or more courses while remaining actively enrolled in at least one course that same semester.

Refunds

If you drop or withdrawal, you may still owe tuition toward the classes you were signed up for.

The iMBA program follows the Non-Standard Course Schedule, meaning we do not follow the rest of the campus for start/end dates of our courses.  The non-standard deadlines are based on the number of calendar days, not week days. If you make no payment, and then withdraw from the university or drop courses, you are liable for the full amount of tuition and fees originally assessed less applicable refunds.

It is important you pay attention to the start/end dates of your courses and know whether they are a 4 or 8 weeks in length.

Dates

For your convenience, we have created a Spring 2019 Course Refund Guide with specific cancellation/withdraw/drop dates so you know exactly what refund you can expect.

If you would like to know the policy in general, please visit the Nonstandard Guide for Dropping or Withdrawing through the Office of the Registrar.
