The quarterly Class Schedule lists fee payment requirements. Tuition and fees are due by the first day of the quarter.
Students who have not paid tuition and fees or made the first payment of the Student Payment Plan may be dropped from their classes after the fifth day of the quarter.
Students who owe tuition and fees will not be able to register for future quarters, receive official transcripts, or graduate until their account has been paid.
If a class is full, students have the option to be put on a waiting list. This list automatically adds students to openings as they appear prior to the first day of each quarter. Students should check online, with Enrollment Services, or with the course instructor during the first week of classes to see if they are enrolled in the class. Students should remove themselves from the waiting list if they decide not to enroll in the class.
Students may not register for a course (example: ENGL& 101 item #XXXA) and hold a place on the wait list for another section of the same course (ENGL& 101 item #XXXB).
A student may withdraw from all courses through the eighth week of the quarter, or the equivalent proportion for shorter courses or courses with irregular start and end dates. It is the student's responsibility to drop all classes. Further information is available in the Class Schedule.Official withdrawals occurring after the tenth instructional day of the quarter are posted with a "W" on the student's transcript. A grade of W does not count in GPA calculations. Not attending a class does not withdraw a student or create refund eligibility.After the eighth week, no withdrawls will be allowed. An instructor will assign the appropriate grade. Depending on the start date and length of the class, an early withdrawal during the first two weeks will not be recorded on the transcript.
Students may be administratively withdrawn from an individual class or all classes in a particular quarter for the following reasons. In all cases, tuition refunds will follow LWTech's posted refund policy.
Many classes require completion of prerequisite coursework to ensure students are prepared for course content and rigor. Students must meet the requirements of a class either by grade, transfer coursework, placement score, or faculty permission.
When a student is found in violation of one or more of the student conduct codes published in the student handbook, administrative withdrawal may be selected as an appropriate sanction.
In order to maximize enrollment opportunities for all students, instructors may request the Enrollment Services office to administratively withdraw students who (1) Do not attend the first and/or any subsequent class meetings AND (2) Do not notify the instructor in advance of the absence.
