Administrative Withdrawal: Financial Reasons

In rare instances, following every effort made to determine a solution, students can be administratively withdrawn from the university for failure to pay tuition and fees.

Eligibility to Request a Return to Duke

A student administratively withdrawn for financial reasons may not submit an applicatin to return for the same term in which they were withdrawn. For example, students withdrawn for financial reasons after the first day of class of a gvien term may not submit a form to return for that same term. Student's seeking to return from an administrative withdrawal for financial reason must apply for readmission.


Students requesting to return from an administrative withdrawal for financial reasons must submit a readmission application.  While students are welcome to remit payments at any time, they should plan their application submission according to the deadline date associated with their targeted return term.


Send your application materials between October 1 and November 1 for a return for the spring semester, between March 1 and April 1 for the summer session, and between June 1 and July 1 for the fall semester. You should not assume a late application is acceptable.
