Full-time students may take up to 18 credit hours during the Fall and Spring semesters and six credits during the summer, excluding CLIMB students. Additional credits are considered "overload" and require permission of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Students are expected to have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 for permission to be granted. See schedule above.
Late Registration Fee
Students are encouraged to observe the dates designated for registration. If registration is not completed before the first day of classes, a late registration fee of $50 will be assessed and the fee must be paid in cash before completing the registration process.
A credit balance may develop in a student's account as a result of adjustments to charges and fees. A credit balance indicates an overpayment by the student to EWC or a debt owed to the student by EWC. Credit balances that result from any Federal Fund will automatically be refunded to the student within 14 days unless the student requests in writing to leave the balance in his/her account. All Edward Waters College scholarships and GIA are non-refundable.
The staff of the Student Accounts Office is responsible for recovering outstanding delinquent account balances owed to the College. A collection fee up to 28% may be levied on all delinquent accounts and any related attorney fees may also be imposed. These accounts will be assigned to a collection agency, credit bureau, and/or the tax commission for refund garnishment. Grades and transcripts will be withheld until indebtedness is fully satisfied.
Refund of Tuition and Fees
Refunds for students withdrawing from the college or dropping courses to part-time status, for any reason, will be made in accordance with the scale listed below.
||Percent of Refund
|1 – 7
|8 – 14
|15 – 21
|22 – 28
Days enrolled are based upon calendar days, including any holidays, and not just school days.
Application fees, housing deposit fees, and graduation fees are non-refundable.
The above schedule is applicable to all students withdrawing from the institution regardless of time of enrollment or payment of tuition and fees.
Refund of Room and Board
Room and board charges begin the first day the residential halls open. If a student withdraws from school or moves out of the resident halls, the room and board charges will be prorated from the day the residential halls opened until the day the student officially moved out of the residential hall. After 43 days into the semester, no refund will be given for any reason.
