Consequences for Dropped Courses

It’s important to know the financial consequences before you drop or withdraw from a course.
Contact your academic advisor or financial aid advisor to understand academic consequences.
Student Financials can determine potential tuition refund amounts.


       Drop or Withdraw from a Course       Things to Consider    
During Registration
(excludes Late Registration)

  - Receive 100% refund of tuition and fees paid

  - Course is deleted from your enrollment

After Registration (includes Late Registration) but before Census date

  - Receive 70% of tuition and fees paid

  - Class does not earn any grade and does not appear on your transcript

After the Census Date

  - Refund of tuition and fees is 25% to 0%

  - Based on duration of course and date of withdrawal (See Refund chart)

  - Must occur prior to 'last date for withdrawal' for term or weekend course

  - Course appears on transcript with a grade or 'W' for withdrawal. 




 - Only courses dropped prior to the first day of the term or weekend course will be credited at 100%

 - Courses dropped on or after the first day of the term (beginning at 12:01 a.m.) will receive tuition and fee credits of less than 100%, per the State mandated refund rules.

 - Any tuition and fee reductions due to drop or withdrawal activity which result in a credit (negative) balance on the student account would then be eligible for Collin’s refund process.

 - Dropping or withdrawing from a class may change financial aid eligibility and/or academic standing. It may also affect visa status for international students and eligibility requirements for student athletes.

Continuing Education students:

 - Only courses dropped prior to the start time of the first scheduled meeting time are eligible for remission of course charges. 

 - Courses dropped after the scheduled first meeting time are not eligible for any refund.
