  (iii) The number of graduate and undergraduate students attending under a North American Indian tuition waiver who withdrew from the university each term during the previous academic year. For purposes of this subparagraph, a withdrawal occurs when a student who has been awarded the waiver withdraws from the institution at any point during the term, regardless of enrollment in subsequent terms.
