Professional Development Policies

Withdrawal and Credit Change Policies for Professional Development Courses



Official withdrawal from course prior to first class meeting

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.


Official withdrawal from course after first class begins

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.


Credit changes after application

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.


Credit changes after end of term

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.


Appeals of Professional Development Policies

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.
