Drop-out Fees $19,398
By Leon Nyberg
Students who have withdrawn from the
University so far this year have lost
$19,398 in tuition and fees, according to
records in the Registrar's office.
This amount is the difference between
total fees paid and the amount refunded
to the students who have withdrawn from
school last semester and so far this se
mester. The Registrar's records show that 309
students have withdrawn or have been
dropped from school since the beginning
of the fall semester. In addition, approxi
mately 400 first semester students failed
to register for the second semester.
The 309 students paid a total of $37,373
to the University, and they received re
funds totaling $14300.
First semester refunds amounted to
only $5,,t!66, indicating that many students
left school after the fifth week of the se
tivity representation.

A University accountant explained that
a student who registers but then with
draws before classes start gets a com
plete refund with the exception of a five
dollar processing fee.
During the first two weeks of school 80
per cent of the tuition is refunded. This
percentage drops by 20 per cent a week
until after toe fifth week, when there is
no refund to the student.
The accountant said there is no way to
determine if the amount retained from
each student actually covers toe entire
cost of the process of administrative work
and classroom instruction before toe stu
dent withdraws from school.
The loss in revenue to. toe University

of $14,200. plus $3,775 in tuition scholar
