|If I register for a course but didn't attend am I eligible for a refund?||No, at the time of registration you agree you are responsible for payment of the courses you are registering for. When you register you reserve that spot, which may not be filled if you don't drop but do not attend class.|
|If I have an extenuating circumstance may I appeal the refund decision?||Yes, extenuating circumstance is defined in Title V as "Extenuating circumstances are verified cases of illness, accident, or other circumstances beyond your control." If this is the case you can complete a Petition for Refund.|
|What happens if I never paid my fees and don't intend to pay?||A charge is placed on your account at time of registration and will stay on your account until paid. This balance will place a hold on you recieving any records or transcripts through COS and could prevent you from registering for future terms.|
|If I registered for the course and stayed registered for the entire course but stopped attending prior to the refund date am I eligible for a refund?||No, a student must be officially dropped from a class to be eligible for a refund.|
