If any student needs/desires to withdraw from his/her program he or she will need to contact the school and make such a request.  The student will receive the corresponding ‘W’ for withdrawal.  Further, the student will not be permitted to complete the course during that academic school semester and when re-applying for reinstatement the student will be charged a re-activation fee of $25.00.  After that the student will be permitted to complete the course.
