Students adjusting their schedules or completely withdrawing from all classes during the first two weeks of a sixteen-week class (see the Academic Calendar for exact dates) or the first week of a four-, five-, six- or eight-week class will be charged 100% fees for any courses added and will receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees for any courses dropped. Finance and late charges accrued will not be reduced. No refunds will be made after this period except as stipulated for first time enrollment of Title IV recipients.
Complete Withdrawal of Students Who Are Title IV Recipients
Recipients of Federal Title IV student financial assistance funds (Pell Grants, SEOG, Stafford and Plus Loans) who completely withdraw from the College during a semester may be required to repay a portion of the funds that are determined to be unearned. The calculation of earned vs. unearned funds is based directly on the portion of the semester the student attended before totally withdrawing. This calculation is not related to the College's tuition refund policy. It is in addition to the College's Refund policy and is required by Federal Title IV regulations.
Non-Credit Recreation and Community Services Classes
Full refunds will be granted to non-credit students who officially withdraw prior to the end of the first class meeting. Students who withdraw after the first class meeting and before the start of the second class meeting will receive an 80% refund. Students who withdraw after the start of the second class meeting will not qualify for a refund. To officially withdraw, a non-credit student must withdraw in the Office of Recreation and Fitness (405) 682-7860, or they will be billed for the class.
Non-Credit Professional Development Institute Classes
Participants enrolled in non-credit classes, workshops, seminars or other activities offered by Professional Development Institute who officially withdraw before the scheduled starting time will receive a 100% refund. To officially withdraw, students must contact Professional Development Institute at (405) 682-7562. Participants who fail to officially withdraw will be billed.
