Withdrawals, Refunds and Transfers

Enrollment Policies

Please note: Some courses have special enrollment policies regarding refunds, transfers and dropping a course. For the most accurate information for the course you are interested in, please see the course description page on our Web site.

The Open Campus program has distinct enrollment, withdrawal or drop, and refund policies. Visit the Open Campus page for information on enrolling in, withdrawing or dropping from, or requesting refunds for that program.

The Fast Track program has distinct enrollment, withdrawal or drop, and refund policies. For more information, please see below.

Drop a Course

Requests to drop a course must be received before the last meeting of the course. Students can request a drop until the refund deadline by logging into their account and selecting "My Enrollment History" on the left menu.

After the refund deadline please contact the Student Services office by phone, fax or in writing. Please include the student's name, course title and course section number. For information about special enrollment policies or other alternatives (such as transferring to another course or sending a substitute), contact our Student Services office at: (800) 752-0881 or by email.

Following the proper drop procedure will ensure an appropriate grade assignment.

Refunds

Drop requests for short courses (six or fewer meetings), will be approved with a refund of the course fee, less a $30 processing fee, if the request is received by the refund deadline—seven calendar days before the course begins. For quarter-long courses (more than six meetings), a drop request will be approved with a refund of the course fee, less a $30 processing fee, if the request is received by the refund deadline—before the second meeting of the course. For online courses, a drop request will be approved with a refund of the course fee, less a $30 processing fee, if the request is received by the refund deadline—within two weeks of the course start date and you have not gone beyond Lesson 1 in the course. Some courses have special enrollment policies that may reduce the amount of the refund or alter the refund deadline.

Transfer to Another Course

Requests to transfer to another course in the same quarter or the next must be received seven days prior to the first class meeting of the class from which you will transfer by contacting Student Services or the program coordinator. Note: For quarter-long courses (more than six meetings), you may transfer out before the second class meeting, or within two weeks of the start date or before starting Lesson One for online courses. If additional fees are due, they must be paid at the time of the transfer. Transfer to a course with a lower course fee will result in a refund, processed at the time of the transfer. A $30 processing fee may be assessed if you request to transfer course fees more than once. Courses with special enrollment policies may have limits or fees for transfer.
