Refund Policy for BCE Honors Courses

  • July 5: Last day to add or drop a course and receive a 100% refund
  • August 4: Last day to withdraw from a course and receive a 0% refund

Once a class begins, BCE Honors students have until the add/drop deadline of July 5, 2023 to drop the course directly in EagleApps via the Agora Portal and receive a 100% refund. The deadline for withdrawing from a course is August 4, 2023. After the add/drop deadline, there is no cancellation of tuition.The date of withdrawal is determined based on the submission of the Course Withdrawal Form located on the Student Services Academic Forms page.

Students are responsible for properly dropping or withdrawing from a course by the deadline.

No longer attending a course does not constitute a drop or withdrawal. When a student drops a course before the add/drop deadline, no record is maintained. When a student withdraws from a course after the add/drop deadline, a grade of W is recorded on the student’s transcript and academic credit is not granted.
