Withdrawal from Course

Your class registration commits you to attend and complete the class for which you have paid.

Withdrawal prior to the start of a class

For any class, you may withdraw at least one working day before the class begins by submitting the course withdrawal form through the Student Portal. Select the term. Then mark the radio button for the appropriate course, enter a reason for withdrawing, and click Submit. Your request for withdrawal will be sent to the Director of Student Services to be processed. We will refund the tuition you have paid for that course, minus a $50 withdrawal fee. No refunds will be given for registration materials.

Once classes begin, however, the following policies apply:

Three-credit traditional or hybrid courses

If you submit the course withdrawal form through your student portal before the third class day, you will receive a refund of 50% of the tuition you have paid and an official grade of W. On or after the third day, you cannot receive a refund if you withdraw. If you notify us of your withdrawal before the last day of class, you will receive an official grade of W. If you do not notify us officially of your withdrawal during the time the course is being conducted, you will receive an official grade of F. No refunds will be given for registration materials.

Note: If this is taken as a professional development event and then applied to graduate credit and if you submit the course withdrawal form through your student portal before the 3rd day from the start of the online component, you will receive a refund of 50% of the tuition you have paid and an official grade of W. If you withdraw on or after the date that is three days from the online component, your tuition will not be refunded and you will receive an official grade of W. If you do not notify us of your withdrawal prior to the scheduled online end date you will receive a grade of F. No refunds will be given for registration materials.

Three-credit/fully online courses

If you submit the course withdrawal form through your student portal before the 14th day from the start of a fully online class you will receive a refund of 50% of the tuition you have paid and an official grade of W. If you withdraw on or after the date that is 14 days from the start date of an online class your tuition will not be refunded and you will receive an official grade of W.
