Strategic Investments Drop/Refund Policy

Dropping and Withdrawing from Courses

You can request to drop from a course before the deadline (ALWAYS check the course page for specific drop policy stipulations and published deadlines). After the deadline, you can only ask for a withdrawal. You will receive a "No Credit" (NC) as your final grade.

You have two easy options to request a drop from your course(s):

1) Submit a written drop request using our help request form.

2) Log in to your Student Portal, then: Navigate to "My Courses" and select the course you would like to drop. On the right side, under "Tools," select "Drop Course. In the pop-up window that appears, select "Submit."

You will receive an e-mail confirmation within 1–2 business days after your drop request is processed.

All requests for exceptions must be submitted in writing by using our help request form. Be sure to attach any supporting documents (such as a doctor's note).

Refund Deadline:

No refunds will be given if notice of dropping from the course is not received by 11:59PM the day before the first session of class.

A full refund is given (less a $40 administrative fee per course) if notice of dropping from the course is received by PaCE 5 or more days prior to the first day of instruction.

A 50% refund is given (less a $40 administrative fee) if notice of dropping from the course is received 1-4 days prior to the course start date.

In the event that a course is cancelled, students will receive a full refund.
