NOTE: Tuition refunds are based upon the percentage of time elapsed in each course. If the course is dropped before 10% of the time elapsed in the course, a 100% refund will be issued. If the course is dropped before 20% of the time elapsed in the course, a 50% refund will be issued.

A course must be dropped before 20% of the course (50% refund date) has elapsed in order to avoid a “W” appearing on the academic transcript.

The last day to register for a flexibly scheduled course is the day before the course begins. The last day to drop and receive a 100% refund for a flexibly scheduled course is the day before the course begins. Please check with the Financial Aid Department regarding flex term freeze dates.

* A day marked with an “*” is either a weekend day, a holiday and/or the campuses are closed.
