Students will be eligible for a 100 percent registration fee refund if official withdrawal occurs prior to the first course meeting or the course is canceled due to insufficient enrollment. A seventy-five (75) percent registration fee refund will be given if the student withdraws prior to or on the ten (10) percent point of the scheduled hours once the course begins. For contact-hour courses, five (5) calendar days from the first day of class is the determination date. Students must contact staff in the program area to start the process for refunds and a request for refund must be completed. Additional fees (if applicable) will be 100 percent refunded when a student officially withdraws from a course prior to the first class meeting. These fees are non-refundable once the course begins. For Self-Supporting classes, no refund will be made unless the course is canceled.
