ECE Withdrawal Policy

Open Enrollment Withdrawal

If you choose to withdraw from a course, notification must be received in writing (via email or fax), before 5:00 p.m. eastern time, not less than five days prior to the class start date. (Unless otherwise noted in specific program content -- e.g., courses with materials that are ordered upon registration). Once this notification is received, a full refund will be issued, minus a $25 processing fee. No refunds will be given after this period.

Class Cancellations

If a course is cancelled by Emory Continuing Education, the student may elect to transfer to the next offering of the course, apply the tuition to another course at ECE or receive a full refund.

Course Transfer

You may transfer a course registration once, within the guidelines of the withdrawal policy. If you fail to attend the class you transferred into, you forfeit the full course tuition.

Refunds

Provided that requests are within ECE withdrawal guidelines, refunds will be made in the form of the original payment. Please allow up to four weeks for check refunds. A $35 fee will be charged for returned checks and stop payments. Failure to attend class or stopping payment on a check or credit card does not constitute withdrawal. Refunds to military service members, veterans and their immediate families will be issued on a pro rata basis, per Veterans Affairs regulations.

Waitlist Policy

If a class is full, you can select the ‘Join Waitlist’ button and then log in and/or create a student account. Be sure to include your email address and a telephone number.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Withdrawal Policy

While no refunds can be issued, OLLI students may transfer to another OLLI course within a quarter, but not between quarters.

A $35 fee will be charged for returned checks and stop payments. Failure to attend class or stopping payment on a check or credit card does not constitute withdrawal.
