Withdrawal Policy


For withdrawal information, please visit the Office of Registration & Records.  Non-attendance and/or nonpayment does not constitute a withdrawal from Butler University.


Please review the Fall 2019 Institutional Refund Schedule

For information regarding the Summer Institutional Tuition Refund Policy (typically available mid-April), please contact the Office of Student Accounts.

Complete Withdrawals

If it becomes necessary to withdraw completely from Butler for reasons other than medical, a student should confer at once with the dean of his or her college who will initiate the complete withdrawal. The effective date of the withdrawal is the date the form is received by the Registration and Records Office.

If a student seeks a withdrawal for medical reasons, he/she should contact the office of Vice President for Student Affairs. As the University Health Officer, the Vice President for Student Affairs will review the applicable documentation and offer a recommendation to the dean of the appropriate college who will initiate the complete withdrawal. Stipulations may be imposed for future re-enrollment.  Further details are available from the Office of Registration & Records.

Upon a complete withdrawal within the first four weeks of a semester, a partial refund of tuition will be made in accordance with the Fall 2019 Institutional Refund Schedule
