It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw from any and all courses. Refunds of fees are computed  according to the instructor's recorded last date of class attendance. Attendance in an on line course is measured by active participation in the course (i.e., submission of weekly assignment). Any claims disputing actual class attendance and requests for exceptions because of extenuating circumstances must be submitted in writing to the business office within 90 days after the end of the semester of withdrawal. Any exception to this policy must be  approved by an administrative committee. The college will not refund fees originally paid by check until the check has successfully cleared the student's bank.

Students receiving any type of financial aid, including grants, loans, scholarships or veteran's ,benefits, must consult with a financial aid office staff member before dropping any course.

Withdrawal Procedure
It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw from any and all courses. The student should contact the  instructor (in person, by phone or via email) to discuss the decision to withdraw. A student can request to be  withdrawn from courses by completing the following steps:
