Withdrawal and refund policy differs slightly for open learning and term-based courses.
Interactive online and self-paced full term courses: consult the academic calendar to determine deadlines for tuition and distance fee refunds, when drop/add fees are in effect, and what grades are assigned when you decide to withdraw.
Self-paced open learning courses: withdrawal policy is calculated on the number of days from your start date.
|Calendar Days||Tuition||Distance Fee||Drop/Add Fee||Transcript Grade|
|1-15||Full refund||Full refund||No charge||No grade assigned|
|16-27||70% refund||No refund||Charged||"W" grade assigned|
|28-38||40% refund||No refund||Charged||"W" grade assigned|
|39-150||No refund||No refund||Charged||"W" grade assigned|
|151+||No refund||No refund||Cannot drop||"A-F" grade assigned|
The reason for withdrawal determines which signatures are needed and whether the drop/add process can be completed online or not. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or your academic advisor should you decide to withdraw. Include your full name, AU ID, course abbreviation, number and title, and the reason you wish to withdraw. If a refund is available, a credit will be applied to your account.
