Withdrawal and Credit Change Policies for Professional Development Courses
Students who officially withdraw from a course by informing the Professional Development Department prior to the first class meeting will receive a 100% refund of the course tuition.
Students who inform the Professional Development Department that they officially withdraw from a course after it has begun will be charged an administrative fee of 50% of the cost of one credit for that course. The administrative fee also applies when students fail to inform the Professional Development Department of their withdrawal.
If students apply for Professional Development credit and later decrease their requested credits, they will be billed an administrative fee of 50% of the cost of one credit for that course.
After the end of the term in which courses were completed and grades were assigned, students cannot change their requested credits; they remain responsible for the course’s tuition charge.
Edgewood College understands that rare and extenuating circumstances (such as acute medical conditions) may arise that affect a student’s ability to complete a Professional Development course. In these cases, the student may contact the Coordinator of Professional Development to appeal policy application. The Administrative Appeals Committee will review the recommendation from the Coordinator of Professional Development and determine if any additional refund is granted. Additional information from a third party (such as a physician) may be required.
Appeals after one year from the end of the term in which the course was completed will not be considered.
