The official College policy and procedure concerning refunds for withdrawing from courses is available at the Office of the Treasurer.
Classes do not go away automatically by nonattendance.
Withdrawing from All Classes
Students planning to withdraw from all classes during a particular semester should protect themselves both academically and financially by contacting the Office of Undergraduate Academic Services or the Office of Graduate Studies to formally withdraw or to request a leave of absence. Financial Aid recipients who withdraw from all classes will probably be subject to a Return of Title IV Funds.
Withdrawing from Individual Classes
Students planning to withdraw from individual classes may do so on the web via MyCharleston. Official withdrawal from classes by specified dates each term will allow the institution to refund part of the tuition, fees, room, and meals. The College of Charleston Refund Policy with dates will be enclosed with the semester bill from the Office of the Treasurer.
Not Attending Classes
Students who simply stop going to classes risk receiving a grade of "F" in these classes, still being charged for the classes, and having to repay any financial aid funds received.
