Total withdrawals are processed through the Registrar's Office (580.774.3777 or 580.774.3778). Requests for total withdrawals must be processed either in person or through the student’s SWOSU email account.

Every Title IV aid recipient who enacts a complete withdrawal before the 60% point in a semester will be billed for all money required to be returned to the federal government due to the new Return of Title IV Aid policy. The billing amount will be equal to 40% or more of your tuition and fee charges for the semester. The formula for aid return is available in the Office of Student Financial Services.
