Drop After Refund

Students may withdraw from a course by processing an add/drop form during regular office hours through the Registration Office at Main Campus, Romeoville Campus, or by phone at (815) 744-2200. Please note the drop dates listed on your bill/student schedule. Every course has its own drop date.

Failure to withdraw properly may result in a failing grade or "F" in the course.


Appeal Policy

No tuition refund will be granted following the refund date. If extenuating circumstances exist (i.e. military activation, death of immediate family member, or a serious medical condition) a student may submit a General Petition Form with supporting documentation to the Registration Office. An appeal does not always result in a refund. Appeals must be made prior to the end of the term in which the late drop occurred.
