New Drop and Tuition Refund Policies Announced
Take a look at the newly-announced drop and tuition refund measures that will become effective in the Summer 2019 term. Key elements of importance to adjuncts:
- Students will no longer have two weeks to decide whether to drop a class. This will enable all adjunct faculty to settle their class enrollment and focus on teaching.
- Teaching faculty will be asked to confirm class attendance through quick a survey via the Student Success Portal powered by Starfish. The survey will take less than 1 minute.
- With the drop policy change, the tuition refund policy has also been adjusted to reflect the drop/withdrawal date.
