Learners must have a clear understanding of what may be expected from the services offered, be informed of their rights and responsibilities, and be provided a process to address grievances.
The purpose of this procedure is to describe for students their responsibilities for tuition and fees regardless of class attendance, to describe for instructors guidelines for administratively dropping students from their classes, and to describe the circumstances under which the College may administratively drop a student.
No Show Drop for Non-Attendance
Once a student has registered for classes, the student is responsible for paying tuition and fees, even if the student never attends classes. The student must use myLane to drop any classes for which they do not want to be charged by the established refund deadline for each class in order to receive a full refund of paid tuition or remission of indebtedness if tuition has not been paid.
Deadlines may be reviewed at the Deadlines and Calendars web page.
Students will be dropped through the No Show Drop procedure for nonattendance or failure to meet prerequisites. Instructors will notify departmental staff of No Show Drop students who do not attend at least one class session during the first week that the class is offered each term. This period coincides with the refund period for classes. Students who do not physically attend at least one class session during the first week or participate in an online class activity for online classes will be No Show Dropped.
Even with the faculty dropping students for lack of attendance through the No Show Drop process, it remains the student's responsibility to withdraw from any class they do not plan to attend. Unless the class is canceled, the student is responsible for paying tuition and fees.
Any refund of tuition or remission of indebtedness is based on the official date that the student dropped or withdrew from the class using myLane.
Students are financially and academically responsible for all courses in which they enroll. An annotation of * (asterisk) will be recorded on the transcript when a student withdraws after the refund deadline.
Students may not ask an instructor to hold a spot in class during the first week of the term and must attend at least one class session to avoid being No Show Dropped.
No Show Drop for Non-Payment of Tuition
The college reserves the right to process an administrative withdrawal of a student from their classes if:
- Payments are made to the college with a check that is refused by the bank because of insufficient funds or for other reason; or
- Payments are made using credit card accounts that are subsequently rejected by the bank.
