Cancellation of Registration

Students may cancel their registration for a term and be relieved of all tuition and fees if they have not attended any classes or received any related student services. Please be aware of the deadlines to cancel registration.  Students who attend class or use campus services must withdraw from the University following the procedures outlined below under Withdrawal from University.

Registration for fall and spring may be canceled in one of the following ways:

  • Online by usingUI-Integrate Self-Service, no later than the business day before the first day of instruction of the term you wish to cancel. You will not be permitted to drop your last class on UI-Integrate Self-Service. You may drop all but your last class, then use the electronic notification of intent to cancel your registration. This electronic notification is time stamped, and must be submitted no later than the business day before the first day of instruction to be eligible for cancellation.
  • By submitting a request for cancellation of registration to the Office of the Registrar. The request must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on the business day before the first day of instruction of the term you wish to cancel. Requests by mail should be addressed to the Office of the Registrar, 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, IL 61801.
  • In person at the Records Service Center, 901 West Illinois Street, Suite 140, by 5:00 p.m. on the business day before the first day of instruction of the term you wish to cancel.

If you cancel your registration and do not plan to return for a future term, you must also cancel any future courses for which you have registered.

Withdrawal from the University

Students who wish to withdraw from the University must initiate this process in the Student Academic Affairs Office by completing and submitting a withdrawal form. After the withdrawal form is signed by the Assistant Dean for Academic Affairs, it is critical that students follow the proper withdrawal procedures since continued absence from classes alone does not constitute withdrawal. Students who leave the university without completing the withdrawal process will receive a grade of “F” for each course a student remains registered. Absence through the final exam period is cause for failure and may make it very difficult for a student to return to the University or to enter any other college or university. Repeated withdrawals may also jeopardize a student's ability to complete the degree program within the approved time period.

Refund of Tuition and Fees

A student may be released from the obligation to pay a portion or all of the semester's tuition and fees by either canceling registration or withdrawing from the University by the refund date. For detailed information on tuition and fee refunds, please consult the Office of Registrar's withdraw schedule.
