for withdrawals submitted prior to the first day of class

Juilliard reserves the right to ask, at its discretion, a student to withdraw from a class if he or she causes a disruption to a class, to an instructor, or to a Juilliard staff member. Disruptive behavior may be grounds for the school to deny enrollment in subsequent Evening Division courses and/or access to the Juilliard building. Please see the Evening Division Student Handbook for the Code of Conduct and other school and divisional policies.
