Important Dates for Online Graduate Students

To drop or withdraw from your course, please contact the Institute of Academic Outreach at 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 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.
