During the first week of classes, an undergraduate student may add or drop individual courses. If an undergraduate student drops below 12 credits, they are charged on a per credit basis and will be considered a part-time student. Please note that financial aid eligibility and participation in varsity athletics may be affected. Please check with the appropriate offices to determine the impact of part time enrollment. If courses exceed 18 credits, you will be charged at the per credit rate for all credits exceeding 18 in a semester.
During the first week of classes, graduate students may add or drop individual courses for which they will be billed or credited respectively. Undergraduate and graduate students who drop individual courses after the second week of a semester are not eligible for a refund.
Credit Balance Refund Policies
Students are encouraged to sign up for electronic refunds (eRefunds) to have their money automatically deposited into their bank account. To enroll students can log into their PrideNET account, click “My Profile” tab, click “My Student Account,” then click the “Go to CashNet Link”. Go to the eRefund Section (located below the recent payments section) and follow the steps. This is the most secure and quickest method for receiving a refund.
Students not enrolled in direct deposit will be issued a check within fourteen days, unless the student authorizes the College in writing to hold the credit balance for a future semester. Refund checks will be made payable to the student, unless the student requests in writing that the refund check be made payable to another party. Plus Loan refunds will be made payable to the parent borrower.
