WSC encourages students to speak with instructors and advisors with any questions or concerns about dropping, cancellation, or withdrawing. WSC follows all North Dakota State Board of Higher Education policies and North Dakota University System procedures concerning student course drops, withdraws and refunds.
This procedure allows students to discontinue enrollment in a particular course, but to maintain enrollment in some courses for the semester. All course drops must be completed in CampusConnection.
Withdraw to Zero Credits
This procedure allows students to withdraw to zero credits for the semester. Students withdrawing completely from WSC must complete the Withdraw to Zero Credits Form.
Administrative Hardship Withdraw
The procedure allows students the opportunity to appeal a transcript record
following a course drop, a withdraw to zero credits, or past the last day to drop with record due to extenuating circumstances (medical, military, death in immediate family, natural disasters, etc). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
to request the Administrative Hardship Withdrawal Form.
Student Finance Drop or Withdraw Appeal
Tuition and fee refunds are calculated in compliance with policy set by the State Board of Higher Education. Students, who wish to appeal tuition and fee charges
due to extenuating circumstances (medical, military, death in immediate family, natural disasters, etc), may do so by following an appeal process and submitting the Student Finance Drop/Withdraw Appeal Form to the Student Finance Office.
Students Reported as Non-Attending
Students who are reported for courses as non-attending based on the important dates rubric, will be charged 25% of the tuition and fees for that course and receive a W on their transcript.
Tuition & Fee Refund Schedule
|Percent of Course Completed*
|Tuition and Fees Refunded
|Dropping a Class
|0.000% - 8.999%
|9.000% - 34.999%
|35.000% - 59.999%
|60.000% - 100.000%
When eligibility for a refund is calculated, WSC takes the number of calendar days that have elapsed since the class has started and divides that by the number of calendar days in the class. As a result a class with fewer calendar days will have a shorter deadline to receive a refund.
