Any registered course dropped before the first session and up to seven days after the start of the class or before the second session - whichever comes first - may qualify for a full reversal of tuition and fees. For semester long courses the drop deadline for the course is 21 days after the start of the course to receive a full reversal of tuition and fees. Books may be returned to the CCU Bookstore for credit on account if students drop courses within the designated drop period. Please see Using Financial Aid in the CCU Bookstore for more information.
