Additional Registration Information
Change of Registration: Drop/Add Classes
In general, students may drop or add full-semester classes the first 10 days of the semester. The drop/add period is shorter for summer session and accelerated classes. Classes dropped during this period do not appear on transcripts. Refer to the CampusWeb homepage
for all add/drop & withdrawal deadlines.
Withdrawing from Classes
A class dropped after the first 10 days of the semester, or appropriate date for shorter sessions, is called a “withdrawal.” A grade of “W” will appear on the transcript. Students must formally withdraw from any course they do not intend to complete. An “F” (failing) grade may be awarded when students stop attending without formally withdrawing. The last day to withdraw from each course section is available within the
. Extenuating circumstances may be considered when students use the Withdrawal Appeals process. For additional information, email email@example.com or call 308-535-3774, 1-800-658-4348, Ext. 3774.
Tuition Refund Policy
Any student dropping a class before the class starts will receive 100% refund of tuition and fees. After a class begins, students who discontinue their studies may receive a full or prorated refund of tuition and fees. The method of computation will be the amount of time the student is enrolled as a percentage of the total course length. All days are included in the computation including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. The drop/withdrawal date will be the date the student submits a completed registration change form to Registration and Records. The failure of the student to attend a class does not dismiss a student’s responsibility to pay an unpaid balance owed to the college on courses not officially dropped. Registration/Registration Change forms are available in pdf format (for printing and completing) in the upper right portion of this page or at campus Welcome Centers.A student is entitled to a refund computed on the following formula and tables:
(Drop/Withdraw Date) - (Course Start Date) divided by (Course End Date) - (Course Start Date) = % Elapsed Time
| ||Percent of Days Elapsed||Refund|
|Drops: ||12.5% (census date) ||100% (tuition/fees)|
|Withdrawals: ||25% ||60% (tuition only)|
| ||Over 25% ||No Refund|
One and two-day classes are excluded from refunds after the beginning session. Students who have credit balances will receive a refund within 60 days.
No student may register for a course after its add deadline (see add/drop & withdrawal deadlines within
) without special permission from the Area Vice President of Student Affairs and the instructor(s) involved. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor regarding assignments given prior to registration.
The normal class load is 12 to 18 credit hours per semester. More than 18 credit hours is considered an overload for Fall/Spring semesters, more than 12 credit hours in Summer. Students must obtain Area Vice President of Student Affairs permission to enroll in the course(s) that create the overload before registering.
