Withdrawing and Refunds

A student may drop classes up to ten days before the beginning of final exams.  The final date to drop is listed in Important Dates and Times in Registration Information on the Class Schedule webpage.  Students who are receiving financial aid and wish to withdraw completely must inform personnel in the Financial Aid Office.  Courses that are dropped during the first ten days of the quarter are not included on the student’s academic transcript (Summer Quarter: first six days).  Courses dropped after the 10th day will be recorded with a “W” on the transcript.

To drop classes online

  1. Go to the Student Kioskclick on “Register for Classes”.
  2. Select the correct quarter.
  3. Enter your SID & Quarterly PIN. 
  4. Click Register.  Note that refunds end after the third week of classes. 
  5. Click Continue. 
  6. Your schedule will appear in a grid.  Enter the item number for the class you want to drop in one of the empty boxes on the left. 
  7. Click the “Add/Drop” button. 
  8. A box will pop up, warning you that you are dropping a specific class.  Verify that it is the correct class, then click OK. 

During the first 2 weeks of the quarter, the class will disappear.  After that date, the class will stay on your schedule (and subsequently on your transcript).  In the Kiosk it will say “withdrawn”.  An estimate of the refund credit you may receive will be shown on your schedule.  The amount will first be credited towards any balance owing to the college.  If you paid your tuition without any type of financial aid, any amount due to you will be refunded, either to the debit/credit card you used to pay it, or with a check.

If you received any type of financial aid, your refund will not be processed until after the third week of classes.  Other refunds typically take approximately two weeks and will be refunded as paid.  If you paid with a debit or credit card, the money will be refunded to the card.  If you paid with cash or a check, a check will be mailed to you.  If Financial Aid paid your tuition, it will be the same as set up with BankMobile.

Students who stop attending class without withdrawing from the class forfeit all claims to credits or refunds and will receive failing grades.  Students requested to withdraw for disciplinary reasons or delinquent attendance will not be eligible for refunds.  Students who withdraw from a class or from the college using proper procedures may be entitled to a refund on the following basis:

  Prior to the 1st day of classes
1st week of classes
2nd week of classes
3rd week of classes
After 3rd week of classes

          *Summer Quarter-see summer quarter class schedule for refund dates. Refunds for classes that begin or end on a date other than the standard quarter will be adjusted based on actual start and end dates.
