Withdrawal Fee Policy


Davidson College anticipates that each enrolling student will complete all degree requirements before leaving. Occasionally, circumstances arise which require the student to withdraw from the college.


This policy seeks to inform parents and students of the fees associated with a student's withdrawal from the college.


Students shall inform the Dean of Students of their intention to withdraw from the college as soon as possible. The following fee schedule shall apply to all withdrawing students:

Date of Withdrawal for Upcoming Semester Fee
Beginning of Spring Semester - March 14 $0
March 15 - June 14 $250
After June 15


Beginning of Fall Semester - October 31 $0
November 1 - December 31 $250
After January 1 $500

To receive a refund of the $500 enrollment deposit, a student's account balance must be paid in full.

Administration of Policy

The Controller/Director of Business Services shall oversee this policy and review it at least once every two years. Changes to this policy shall be made in accordance with the college's Policy on Policies. All fees, if applicable, shall be paid within thirty (30) days of notice to withdraw.
