Classes may be dropped only.  All classes added after the submission of the unemployed person’s tuition waiver program documentation are the financial responsibility of the student.

All schedule changes must be reported to the Business Office.  If the schedule change creates a balance the student must contact the Business Office or the risk being deleted from their class schedule.  If a student changes terms after the unemployment waiver is applied, the student must notify the Business Office and request a waiver transfer.  Failure to notify the Business Office could result in the deletion of your class schedule.

If the participant loses Financial Aid for whatever reason, the valid unemployed person’s tuition waiver will be applied to cover the balance.
