Courses: Noncredit Refund & Withdrawal Policies
Note: These policies do not apply to certificate courses or programs. See Certificates: Refunds and Withdrawals.)
Withdrawal: Failing to attend class or notifying the instructor that you wish to drop a class does not constitute an official withdrawal from the course. To avoid receiving a record of unsuccessful completion (applicable to courses providing CEUs), a student must officially withdraw from the course. To withdraw, unless otherwise noted, a student must contact UW Professional & Continuing Education Registration in person, by email, or by U.S. mail. (Students who do not withdraw, and who do not complete the class, will have a record of unsuccessful completion on their UW Educational Outreach Official Record.)
Refund: If the refund request is received by the end of the business day prior to the day of the first class meeting, you will receive a 100 percent refund, less the nonrefundable registration fee. If the request is received after the first class meeting, but by the end of the business day prior to the day of the second class meeting, you will receive a 50 percent refund, less the nonrefundable registration fee. There is no refund for withdrawal from these courses on or after the day of the second class meeting; the only exception is when the course has been cancelled by UW Professional & Continuing Education. Some courses have different refund policies; these are noted after the course descriptions. You will receive a refund within three weeks. Refund checks will be issued to third-party payers if a third-party made the original payment.
