Add/Drop/Withdrawal


Add/Drop 
 
Credit Courses:

Students adding or dropping from a credit course may be eligible for a tuition refund. Refund information appears on students’ bills. Students adding or dropping courses must complete an Add/Drop/Withdrawal Form and return it to the Registrar’s Office. Failure to file the Withdrawal Form will result in F grades and a bill for the course. Stopping payment on a check, failure to pay the semester bill, or failure to attend classes does not constitute a drop or a withdrawal. The amount of refund is determined by the date on which the Add/Drop/Withdrawal Form is received in the Registrar’s Office according to the following schedule for 16-week Fall and Spring regular semesters: 
  • First week of the semester
    • 100% Tuition refund
  • Second week of the semester
    • 50% Tuition refund
  • Third week of the semester
    • 25% Tuition refund
  • Withdrawal: Fourth week of the semester until the end of the withdrawal period (See BCCC's Academic Calendar for withdrawal period dates)
    • No tuition refunds

The refund schedule for the Winter, Summer, 12 week, Accelerated I and II sessions is as follows:

  • Add/Drop: First and Second day of session
    • 100 % Tuition refund
  • Withdrawal: Third day of session
    • 50% Tuition refund
  • Withdrawal: Fourth day of session
    • 25% Tuition refund
  • Withdrawal: Fifth day of session until the end of the withdrawal period (See the BCCC's Academic Calendar for withdrawal period dates)
    • No Tuition refund

The complete refund policy is available in the Student Accounting Office.

Note: Students who are subject to the Federal formula (pro-rata) refund calculation will have different withdrawal percentages. Details are available in the Financial Aid Office.

Non-Credit Courses:

If the College cancels a non-credit continuing education course, 100% of the tuition and fees will be refunded by mail. If a student formally withdraws from a non-credit course before the first class meeting, the College will refund 100% of the tuition and fees. Refunds are not possible after the first class meeting.
 

 Withdrawals
 
Each semester the College establishes and publishes a course withdrawal deadline date. If for any reason you need to withdraw from a course, complete and submit to the Registrar’s Office the BCCC Registration Add/Drop/Withdrawal Form (also available in the Registrar’s Office) before the deadline date. This process can also be completed online. Please be sure that you click "Post Registration" to ensure that the transaction is processed. You will receive a W on your transcript after completing this process. Failure to take this action could result in a grade of F and a bill for the course(s).

Grades of F, like grades of A,B,C, and D, are value-weighted and are used to determine your Grade Point Average (GPA).

A "grade" of W and FX, on the other hand, does not affect GPA.

If you consider withdrawal from a course, consult with your instructor and/or your faculty advisor before withdrawing.

Do not stop attending class, and do not assume that your instructor will withdraw you from the course if you do stop attending. It is your responsibility to withdraw officially from any class that you will not be able to complete successfully. By taking this action, you will be helping to safeguard your immediate GPA, your permanent grade history, and possibly your financial aid.
