Students may withdraw from studies at BI Norwegian Business School in writing by the deadlines given in the contract, cf. the Academic Regulations at BI, Section 3-5.
If the withdrawal takes place outside the deadlines specified in the contract, the students are obliged to pay the tuition fee for the next semester.
BI must confirm the withdrawal in writing before the contract can be cancelled.
Personal force majeure
Students who, during their
studies, programme or (single) course experience unanticipated and
serious circumstances (personal force majeure) may apply for withdrawal from their studies independently of the deadlines given in the contract.
The application must be documented with a doctor's certificate or other relevant information which clearly documents that further studies are not possible or unreasonably burdensome, and that the student for this reason is unable to recommence studies at a later point in time.
Personal force majeure means unanticipated circumstances which cannot be influenced which entail
that the student is unable to fulfil his / her commitment as a student.
Students granted withdrawal based on personal force majeure are
withdrawn with immediate effect and all the student's rights and duties are no longer applicable from the same time.
on the submitted documentation, BI Norwegian Business School will
consider whether there is a documented basis for withdrawal. If such a
basis exists, the student will be exempt from payments.
Students required to pay the
full semester fee can choose to withdraw from the next semester, and
maintain their student status during the current semester, with the
rights and responsibilities this entails.
