Add, Audit, Drop and Withdrawal Policies
A student may add a course until classes start using WebAdvisor. After that, a student who finds it necessary to add a course should confer with his/her advisor.
Registration (including tuition charges) for the courses to be audited is the same as for courses taken for credit. Audit courses carry no credit hours and earn no grade points. The request to audit a course must be received at the time the student registers for the course. Audit requests will not be accepted after the student has registered for the course.
A student may drop a course until classes start using WebAdvisor. After that, a student who finds it necessary to drop a course should confer with his/her advisor.Drops after the 10-percent date of the semester/term are considered withdrawals and must be submitted to the Registrar on a Registration Change Form.
A student who drops a class is advised that this may affect his/her Financial Aid and/or Veterans Benefits. Financial Aid students may contact the Financial Aid Office at 252-335-0821 ext. 2355. Veteran students may contact the Registrar at (252) 335-0821 x 2252 or firstname.lastname@example.org to determine whether their benefits will be affected.
Students may withdraw from class(es) after ten percent but prior to the completion of seventy-five percent of a class. Withdrawals through completion of seventy-five percent will result in a “W” grade. Students who withdraw from the college or from any courses they are enrolled in must confer with their instructors to have their last date of attendance entered in the system. If they are unable to reach their instructors, they can contact a Student Success and Enrollment Management advisor at their campus.
Students who withdraw from the college or from selected courses after the refund period may withdraw without a grade penalty up to Last Day to Withdraw Without Grade Penalty listed on the college's Important Dates and Deadlines
Financial aid recipients should confer with the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing as withdrawing could effect current and/or future eligibility of federal aid. For more information on withdrawing and repayment of federal financial aid, please visit the Financial Aid page.
A refund shall not be made except under the following circumstances:
- A 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from a class prior to the first day of class of the semester/session or if the college cancels the class.
- A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from a class prior to on or on the 10 percent point of the class.
- Military Tuition and Fees Refund - A full refund of tuition and fees shall be granted to military reserve and National Guard personnel called to active duty or to active duty personnel who have received temporary or permanent reassignments as a result of military operations taking place outside the state of North Carolina that make it impossible for them to complete their course requirements.
To comply with applicable federal regulations regarding refunds, federal regulations will supersede the state refund regulations stated in this rule.
In the event that a student, having paid the required tuition for a semester, dies during the semester (prior to or on the last day of the semester), all tuition and fees for the semester may be refunded to the estate of the deceased.
The College will not provide refunds for textbooks. Students should contact the bookstore for textbook buy back policies.
