Withdrawal/tuition refunds

Please note that the Magnetic Resonance Imaging curriculum is designed to be sequential (i.e., all courses for each semester are prerequisites for courses in subsequent semesters). Students are not allowed to withdraw from a single class without withdrawing from the entire program. When a student becomes interested in withdrawing from the program, the UMMC Bulletin provides details regarding the institution's withdrawal policy and related tuition refunds. Withdrawal dates are highlighted on the SHRP academic calendar.
