Important Dates for Online Graduate Students

To drop or withdraw from your course, please contact the Institute of Academic Outreach at institute@truman.edu or 660-785-5384.  We will need your full name, Banner ID# and the name of the course.

  • If you withdraw before the first day of class, you will not be responsible for the tuition fees.
  • If you withdraw after the class begins, the amount of your refund will reduce in increments.
  • A withdrawal confirmation and notice of the amount of tuition you will be responsible for paying will be sent from institute@truman.edu to the email address listed on your application.

You can find dates applicable to certain drop, withdrawal, and refund deadlines through the Registrar.

All graduate certificate courses are 8-weeks long and correspond to the “First Block” or “Second Block” of the regular 16-week semester.  A single 8-week session runs in the summer.  Students in graduate certificate programs and select master’s degree programs will start or end a few days on either side of these blocks and those dates will be publicized to students in advance by the program.  All other programs use a full term.
