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.
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.
