Withdrawals and Refunds

Class Withdrawal:

Southern Nazarene University's policy states a student can miss only one week of non-participation and the class may be "made up" only with the instructor's permission.

Two weeks of non-participation will result in withdrawal from the course and three weeks of consecutive non-participation will result in withdrawal from the program.

Participation will be assessed by logins to Moodle as well as Faculty reporting.

Withdrawal at student's request is preferred at the conclusion of a module.  Situations in which a student must withdraw during a course will be handled on a case-by case basis, but will generally result in the student having to repeat the course at additional costs.

Students will generally be allowed to continue with their cohort after a one-module withdrawal, unless the course missed is a prerequisite course.


Upon withdrawal, a Return to Title IV calculation is processed.  The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 changed the formula for calculating the amount of aid a student and school can retain when the student totally withdraws from all classes.  Students who withdraw from all classes prior to completing more than 60% of an enrollment term will have their eligibility for aid recalculated based on the percent of the term completed.  You should contact the Financial Aid Office to see how your withdrawal will affect your financial aid.

Our Nazarene Heritage
Founded in 1899, Southern Nazarene University is a private, Christian, liberal arts university - a service of the Church of the Nazarene. Located on a 40-acre campus just west of Oklahoma City, SNU grew out of several small colleges committed to educating people for lives of service to God, leadership, and reconciliation toward their neighbors and within the global community. More than 32,000 alumni work and serve throughout the United States and the world. Read About Our Heritage
