Students may drop a course at any time before the final class meeting or the end date of an online course. You will only be eligible for a refund, minus a $40 processing fee, if your drop request is received three (3) business days before the course start date. Business days are Monday through Friday, not including holidays. Courses dropped after the first day of class will be given a "W" (withdrawal) grade, which will have no academic penalty. If the request is submitted less than three (3) business days before the start date of the course, a refund cannot be processed.
