* Drop – If you are choosing to drop one or more classes from a specific *term while still staying enrolled in at least one course. Dropping a course will result in a grade of “W” and tuition plus addition fees will be charged.

* Withdrawal – If you are enrolled in a course/courses as of the first day of the *term and you decide not to attend, you are withdrawing from the term. A withdrawal will result in a grade of “W” and a percentage, if not all, tuition will
be owed depending on the effective withdrawal date.

* Term – Please be aware there are several parts of term for the summer. Maymester, 1st 5 week, 2nd 5 week and the 10 week term are each considered individual terms.

** Census Date (Pell Freeze) – To be paid a Federal Pell Grant, a student must be enrolled in classes at the end of the add/drop period of each semester. A census will be taken immediately following the end of each add/drop period. The student’s enrolled hours as verified by that census will determine the payment amount. Failure to be enrolled at the census will exclude a student from Federal Pell Grant eligibility for that term, per federal regulations.
