Registration Policies

Administrative Withdrawals

The College reserves the right to administratively withdraw students from courses for which they do not meet the requirements. Eligibility for class attendance includes the removal of unmet obligations (academic and/or financial) to the College. Persons deemed ineligible for enrollment are subject to administrative withdrawal.

Cancelled Classes

The College may cancel sections at any time for any reason. In those instances, a 100% refund of applicable tuition and fees for those specific classes will be issued. There is no guarantee that an alternate class may be added.

Dropping Regular And Alternate Length Courses

You may drop a class or cancel enrollment by Touch*Tone during scheduled registration periods.

Student initiated withdrawals must be transacted in person through the campus drop/add procedure.

Student withdrawals transacted after the refund period will appear as a ‘W’ mark on the transcript. Student initiated withdrawals will not be permitted beyond the instructional week indicated in the following table.
