Drops/Withdrawals and Refunds

Drops/Withdrawals

Students enrolled in credit-bearing courses through Open University are entitled to a refund when they follow the campus-established procedures to drop classes or withdraw from courses as outlined below.

The Petiiton to Withdraw (drop form) may be obtained from any department office or from the College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE) Enrollment Services located in the University Student Union, Room 105. Appropriate instructor and department chair (as needed) signatures are required.

Students who drop a course or withdraw after the start of the semester will receive a pro-rated refund of registration fees. The pro-rated refund is based on the date on which the Course/Program Withdrawal and Request for Refund Form is received in the College office.

Students who withdraw after the twelfth week of the semester will not be eligible to receive a refund of registration fees and will be responsible for 100% of fees for the term.

A $10.00 administrative fee will be withheld from all refunds unless withdrawal is the result of a campus regulation, compulsory military service, disability, death of the student or class cancellation by the College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE).

Refund checks will be mailed to the address noted on the Course/Program Withdrawal and Request for Refund Form. The refund checks are mailed approximately four to six weeks after the request is received by the College. See the Open University Registration Form for refund deadline dates.
