Questions about making payments, course withdrawls or receiving refunds? Start here.
Students may officially withdraw from a course or program without academic penalty until one half of the course contact hours have been completed. Specific withdrawal dates vary and students should become familiar with the withdrawal dates of their program.
A student must submit either an official withdrawal form obtained from the Registrar’s Office, or a dated letter clearly outlining the course name, number and section, and signed by the student.
Failure to comply with the proper withdrawal procedures may result in a grade being assigned based on the work completed to the date of withdrawal or a failing grade (F) and ineligibility for any refund of tuition fees. Withdrawals will not be accepted without the student’s signature.
Late withdrawals will be considered by the Registrar in the event that extenuating circumstances prevent the student from notifying the College prior to the last day to withdraw. A grade of “W” will be assigned when a student officially withdraws from a course.
A student may be dismissed from a course or program for academic misconduct, academic deficiency or for unsatisfactory attendance. A final grade will be assigned based on the work completed to the date of dismissal. Dismissals are subject to appeal and students must be informed, in writing, of their right to appeal such a decision at the time of dismissal.
