Adjustments to tuition and fees are based on the Wisconsin Administrative Code TCS10.08 and associated time frames.
When you register for a class, you are responsible for paying all tuition and fees by the Payment Due Dates (unless you drop the class before the class start date).
You will not be dropped from a class by simply not attending or not paying. In addition, drop requests are not accepted through instructors.
To officially drop a class, call NWTC Enrollment Services at 920-498-5444 or 888-385-NWTC, extension 5444, or contact any NWTC campus location. You may also officially drop a class through the student portal. You will be given a confirmation number when a course is dropped. Retain the confirmation number as proof of the drop request.
You may receive a refund per the WTCS Refund Policy (below). The refund amount you may receive is based on the date you officially requested to drop the class. If you decide to drop a class, you should request the drop immediately as a single day can make a difference in the refund amount.
If you register after the class start date and then drop the class, the refund policy applies to you as stated below. Please note: If you are dropping an online class, the start date is the class start date published on nwtc.edu. (The start date for an online class is not determined by the date you first access the course or obtain the course materials.)
Any refund under $4.00 will be issued only upon request by the student. Student refunds may be claimed by NWTC Student Finance Office to pay outstanding student debts or by the NWTC Financial Aid Office to cover grant repayments and outstanding student loans.
The WTCS Refund Policy states:
100% Refund: A student shall receive 100% refund for a course if the course is dropped prior to the first scheduled meeting of the course and the student does not add another course.
80% Refund: A student shall receive 80% refund for a course if the course is dropped before or at the time 10% of the course's total hours of instruction have been completed.
60% Refund: A student shall receive 60% refund for a course if the course is dropped after 10% but before more than 20% of the course's potential hours of instruction have been completed.
0% Refund: No refund shall be granted if the course is dropped after 20% of the course's total potential hours of instruction have been completed.
