Adding & Dropping Courses

Adding Courses

Students who add courses after the term has begun are responsible for payment immediately. Students must check their account online for changes to their balances as a result of adding courses.

Dropping Courses

Tuition Charged

You must pay the full tuition for all courses for which you have registered, by the payment due date

  • However, if you correctly drop the course, you may get tuition credit as outlined below.
  • If you do not attend class and do not correctly drop the course, your account will be billed for the full tuition.
  • If you begin attending class and later cease attending classes without formally withdrawing, you remain responsible for the full tuition.

Students who paid current tuition charges themselves (not from federal or state aid) are eligible for refund of current term charges paid as follows:
