​Dropping courses can have a severe impact on your financial aid eligibility. Most financial aid is based on the hours of enrollment. Should you need to drop a course or withdraw from school, it is imperative you contact your academic advisor and Buckeye Link at 614-292-0300 or buckeyelink@osu.edu.

The overall consequences of dropping courses depend on EACH of the following:

  • The aid you have been awarded

  • The number of credit hours remaining

  • The point in the term you drop credit hours

You could owe additional money to the university (which would be due immediately) or you could have additional funds returned to you from the university in the form of a refund. In some cases, you could have aid adjusted for future terms. For refund and forfeiture dates, look for Important Dates on the University Registrar's website.
