Adding and Dropping Classes
You may register into an open class (has available seats) up to 7:00 am on the morning of the first class session. Additionally, you may add yourself to the wait list up to the Friday before the term begins without an instructor's approval. After the start of the first class session, you must have appropriate online approval in order to add the class.
There is a $30 late registration fee for adding a class(es) after the second week of the term and $50 if its after final grade roster have been printed.
Note: classes designated as "Online" need online approval to add beginning 7:00 a.m. on the first day of the term.
Not attending classes does not constitute a drop. You are responsible for dropping classes by the appropriate deadlines in order to avoid tuition/fee charges and not receive a grade.

For Short-term Credit Classes which span two weeks or less in the term: The class must be dropped before the first day of class in order to be eligible for a 100% refund. No grade will appear on the student's transcript.
For Short-term Credit Classes which span more than two weeks but not more than seven weeks in the term: The class must be dropped no later than three days after the class start date in order to be eligible for a 100% refund. Some specially priced courses do not follow this policy. No grade will appear on the student's transcript.
If eligible for a refund, the refund is processed within three weeks. You may choose your refund method online through your Bobcat Web Account--click here for instructions. Any debt owed to COCC will processed against a refund first, and then the net balance will be remitted to the student.
Note: Refunds are calculated on a per course basis. For example, if a student drops and adds an equal number of credit courses after the refund period, full tuition and fees will be charged for the new class and will not be refunded for the dropped class.
