A $10 fee will be charged for each withdrawal made after the fifth day of a semester. Students may withdraw from a class through the fourth week of a quad class or the ninth week of a full-semester course. A “W” will be recorded on the permanent record. After the deadline the grade may be an F.

Billing is based on total credits registered for during a semester, less refunds for courses dropped. Thus, withdrawing from a course after the 100% refund deadline does not remove hours from the tuition block. Adding a quad 2 or 4 course may increase tuition as billing is based on total hours, including withdrawals.

For description of payment schedule see financial section.

* Failure to officially withdraw from the College through the director of enrollment management may result in an inability to obtain a financial refund and automatic F grades.

§ Special refund policies apply for applied music, Discovery Expeditions or La Vida, and online courses.
