Withdrawal Policy

To withdraw from a class after the first scheduled class meeting, a student must file an Application for Withdrawal/Refund with the instructor. In addition, military students must file with the education services officer or Navy Campus representative. Such applications will not be accepted after the close of business on the last working day of the sixth week of an eight-week class. Students using financial aid, military Tuition Assistance, VA benefits or other than personal funds may be required to repay tuition and fees to the funding agency. For specific repayment requirements, students are referred to the funding agency or, in the case of tuition assistance, the Education Center or Navy Campus office.

The effective date of withdrawal is the filing date as listed on the Application for Withdrawal/Refund, the date the form is filed with the local Education Center or Navy Campus office, not the last date of class attendance. In all cases, the instructor must sign the withdrawal form either before or after the effective withdrawal date.

Important Note: Students who do not formally withdraw from a class in which they have registered, but simply fail to attend, will receive a grade of "F" for the class and will not be eligible to receive a refund.

Emergency Withdrawal

Emergency withdrawal will be considered to be filed as of the date of the emergency. Students must submit written proof of emergency such as military emergency leave orders or medical certification of family emergency. Refund under emergency conditions will follow the refund schedule below.


Refunds will be computed from the effective date of the Application for Withdrawal/Refund and will be made according to the following schedule:

% Refund Withdrawal
100% Refund Withdrawal before the first day of the term.
75% Refund Withdrawal if not more than 1/8 of the term has elapsed.
25% Refund Withdrawal if not more than 1/4 of the term has elapsed.
No Refund Withdrawal if more than 1/4 of the term has elapsed.
