No fee After the completion of the fifth calendar day after the official start date of the course as determined by the College’s academic calendar and/or schedule of classes. 100% course charges If a student does not log in at all, or does not participate academically in the course (see below), the course would be considered dropped within the add/drop period, and there would be no fee for the course. Conversely, if it is demonstrated that the student academically participated in the course after the add/drop period, they would be responsible for the full course charges. Rules for documenting academic participation would be consistent with those prescribed under federal regulations for determining withdrawal from a course for federal financial aid purposes. Examples of academic participation are: submission of an assignment, submission of an exam, posting to an on-line study group or discussion forum, or contact with a faculty member to ask a question about the academic subject of the course.
