Available on select classes up to 7 days prior to the class start date, this option is accessible from your dashboard. • To get started, sign into your account and go to your account dashboard. Select “cancel” from the left side of the screen and then click the Cancel tab. Classes eligible for self-drop will be displayed. From that list, click on the class you wish to drop, or remove, from your schedule, and follow the prompts to complete the transaction. • Students who choose to drop a class will receive a full refund, excluding registration fee, provided that they initiate the drop at least two business days before the beginning date of the class. Trips and some classes may have a different refund policy; trips and classes with a different full refund period will be noted in the shopping cart during checkout. Students electing to drop a class can do so by completing the CEWD Drop/Transfer form available at under the Registration Office link. This form must be submitted to the CEWD Registration Office by email at [email protected] Please note, refunds are determined based on the date a request is received. Exceptions to this policy must be requested in writing to the associate vice president of CEWD and are made on a case-by-case basis.

How to Register for ILR55+ Classes Age Requirements Students should be at least 16 years of age to enroll in most continuing education courses, except for those courses specifically designated for younger students. Students under the age of 16 who have completed at least the seventh grade may be permitted to enroll on a case-by-case basis. Students will be considered for such admission if they demonstrate the ability to profit from instruction based on a set of specific criteria. For more information, call the counseling office (301.846.2471). Certain programs or courses of study include higher minimum age for participation when the College has determined that age is a factor necessary to the normal operation of the program or activity. Minimum age is used as a measure of approximation of the level of maturity, judgment, and social independence needed for successful participation in the program or activity in addition to academic skills. [Authority:34 CFR 110.12] College Policies & Procedures All students agree to abide by the policies and procedures of FCC, including those concerning drug and alcohol abuse, weapons on campus, student conduct, classroom behavior, discrimination, grievance, and other policies and procedures. Students understand that not abiding by these policies and procedures will subject them to the penalties stated within. See for student policies and procedures and the Student Code of Conduct. Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) FERPA, commonly known as the Buckley Amendment, was issued by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare in the 1976 Federal Register. The regulations were transferred to the Department of Education when it was established and codified in Part 99 of Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The purpose of FERPA is to afford certain rights to students concerning their educational records. FERPA applies to all schools that receive funding under most programs administered by the Secretary of Education. Most post-secondary institutions, both public and private, generally receive such funding and must, therefore, comply with FERPA. FERPA applies to all education records maintained by a post-secondary institution, or by any party acting for the institution, which are directly related to the student. These include but are not limited to assessment test scores, academic standing, rosters, class schedule, or any information must contact the Enrollment Center (located on the first floor of Jefferson Hall) in writing with their request. Contact the Welcome Center for additional information.
