Total Withdrawal & Refunds



 The Dean of Student Affairs-Enrollment Services may, by regulation, authorize withdrawals from a class or classes in extenuating circumstances beyond 75% of the term upon petition of the student or his/her representative. The Dean of Student Affairs-Enrollment Services will consult with the appropriate faculty.  Extenuating circumstances are verified cases of accidents, illnesses, or other circumstances beyond the control of the student.

Total withdrawals can only be processed by completing a Total Withdrawal Form.   Students must complete the Total Withdrawal Form by following the procedures that are shown on the back of the form. 

A total withdrawal from the college may impact your academic record and Financial Aid status at Hartnell and future financial aid eligibility at another college or university.  It is highly encouraged to speak with a Hartnell College Counselor and the Financial Aid Office prior to making that decision.  Please contact the Counseling Office at (831) 755-6820 and review the Treatment of Title IV Aid When a Student Withdraws section of our website for more information on the impact of withdrawing.
