Withdrawal and Refund Policies


Professional Development in Education Course Withdrawal Policy

Students who register for a professional development course, but who wish to discontinue, must withdraw from the course formally and must complete the withdrawal before the first 40% of the class meetings have been held. Students who wish to withdraw after this time period must formally request a late withdrawal using the late withdrawal form. The grade of “W” may not be awarded after this date except by special permission of the Dean of Graduate Studies, and only in those cases when continued enrollment in the course would be detrimental to the student’s health or has been made impossible by circumstances beyond the student’s control.

Withdrawal from Class

Participants must contact the instructor if considering dropping or withdrawing from the course.

Tuition Refund Schedule 

Because the Office of Professional Development does not adhere to the exact dates of the normal College schedule (course initiators may begin and end courses to suit the needs of their districts), payments and refunds are based on when the course actually begins.

  • A full refund will be given if notice is given prior to the beginning of the first class session.
  • An 85% refund will be given if withdrawing during the first week of class.
  • No refund will be given if withdrawing after the first week of class.
