Dropping a Course (Reduction of Course/Credit Load)
Courses Starting the First Week of the Semester
Students may drop any course during the first five days of the semester and receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees. Drops for Friday evening and Saturday classes must be submitted by the fifth day of the semester or by the end of the next business day, whichever is later.
Courses Starting After the Fifth Day of the Semester
Some courses have a published start date that occurs after the fifth day (or the first Saturday) of the semester. A student who elects to drop a course in this category will be provided a refund of tuition and fees on the following basis:
Course dropped before scheduled start date - 100% refund
Course dropped by the end of the business day following the start date
of the course - 100% refund
Courses dropped after the 100% refund period - NO REFUND
If you are receiving financial aid, check with the Financial Aid Office prior to dropping any courses. Dropping a course may affect the amount of financial aid for the term.
For courses that meet three times or less, a refund will be issued only if the course is dropped 24 hours prior to the first class session.
Total Withdrawal from Hennepin Technical College
Students who drop all their credits and formally withdraw from the college will receive a refund of their tuition and fees based on the following schedule:
Fall and Spring Semester
1st through 5th day of the semester - 100% refund
6th through 10th day of the semester - 75% refund
11th through 15th day of the semester - 50% refund
16th through 20th day of the semester - 25% refund
After the 20th day of the semester - NO REFUND
1st through 5th day of summer term - 100% refund
6th through 10th day of the term - 50% refund
After the 10th day of the term - NO REFUND
Add/drops may be completed online during the first five days of the semester. After the fifth day of the semester, add/drops and student withdrawals should be completed online. If you encounter problems, contact the registration office. Failure to attend class does not constitute cancellation. Unless you officially drop a course or withdraw from school, you are responsible for full tuition and fees.
Refunds will be issued within fifteen calendar days of the official withdrawal from a course. If a course is cancelled or if tuition collection is made in error, the tuition will be adjusted without penalty. If a student has received some form of financial aid (grants or loans), all or a part of any refund may be returned to the financial aid program.
Withdrawal from College/Return of Title IV Funds (Financial Aid Recipients)
If a student completely withdraws from all credits for a term before the 60% point of that term, the financial aid disbursed is subject to the Federal Return of Title IV Funds. Students earn financial aid in proportion to the time they are enrolled up to the 60% point of the term. The unearned share of financial aid is returned in the following order: Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan, PLUS Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG. The student may need to repay a portion of financial aid he/she received. If a student withdraws before his/her financial aid is disbursed, the student is responsible for the tuition due to the college. Failure to attend class does not qualify as a withdrawal from the college.
Last Day of Attendance/Return of Title IV Funds (Financial Aid Recipients)
If a student receives all Fs for a semester, the financial aid office is required to determine the last date of attendance. The amount of aid earned is determined by the last date of attendance and any unearned aid will be returned to the financial aid programs. The student may need to repay a portion of financial aid he/she received.
