Short-term Certificate Information

Full Payment for all short-term certificate courses is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable after the first day of class.  Deferred payment plans are not offered by the College for short-term certificate programs.  Students are not considered registered until Full Payment is received.  If a student is unable to attend any class, the student has a duty to contact the instructor or the Short-Term Certificate Program Coordinator prior to the class to discuss the matter.  If a student fails to attend the first class and has not contacted the instructor or the Short-Term Certificate Program Coordinator prior to the class to obtain permission, the student will be administratively dropped from the class by the College and the amount paid by the student will be refunded.

Short-term Certificate versus Course Credit

Each student may elect to enroll in certain short-term certificate programs and receive college credit.  The election to take the course for college credit must be made by the student at the time of registration.  Once class has started this choice is irrevocable.  If a student elects to enroll in short-term certificate courses for credit, the business-office policies which normally govern short-term certificates are not applicable.  Instead, all for-credit policies, including tuition and fee amounts will apply.

Dropping Short-term Certificate Courses

Short-term certificate course tuition is non-refundable after the first day of class.  Therefore a student who wishes to drop a short-term certificate course and receive a tuition adjustment must submit all completed paperwork to the Registrar on or before the first day of class.
