Add and Drop Deadlines

The refund amount for which you are eligible is in direct accordance with the regulations set forth by the Pennsylvania State Board of Education. Refunds are based upon the total cost of the course and the premise that you have paid the balance in full, e.g. one-hundred percent refund or fifty percent refund of the total cost of the course.

If you are enrolled in a course with a start and/or end meeting date that does not conform to its part-of-term dates (shown below), please contact the Welcome Center to determine the refund eligibility and withdrawal deadlines for that course.

In extenuating circumstances, exceptions to the refund dates as noted below may apply. You may inquire about eligibility for reversal of tuition charges  at your campus Welcome Center. Deadlines to apply for the reversal of tuition charges are: June 15 of the same year for spring term classes, September 1 of the same year for summer classes, and January 15 for prior year fall term classes.
