For programs whose duration is not listed in the Refund Policy, the campus census dates and related refund dates will apply. For example, for programs lasting 6 weeks, the census date is the 8th day of class and no refund will be issued after that day. Once registration has been processed for Open University, full refunds will not be available.
Extended Learning courses are self-supporting (not subsidized by state monies), and all course-related expenses are paid from student registration fees. Occasionally, this means that courses with low enrollments must be cancelled before they begin. When this occurs, pre-registered students may elect to transfer their fees to another course or receive a full refund. The College of Extended and Global Education makes every effort to notify students by telephone of cancelled courses in advance of the first session.
*Please note some courses are non-refundable regardless of drop date please see specific program refund deadlines. *Refund amounts are based on the date an official withdrawal form is submitted to the College of Extended and Global Education (CEGE) Office. *A delay in Submitting required forms may result in a reduced refund. *Not attending a class, notifying the instructor, stopping payment on a check/credit card or failure to redeem a check that was returned for non-sufficient funds does not constitute officially dropping the course, or release you from the financial obligation to pay the course fees. Dropping the course does not dismiss the financial obligation to pay the course fees.
