All students are required to pay their tuition and fees at the time of registration. Students may pay by cash, check or credit card. Students unable to pay in full must enroll in our convenient "Payment Plans". Students receiving financial aid (i.e., grants and loans) must enroll in the College's deferred payment plan. Direct links to these payment options are found in myACCESS.
For Financial Aid questions, visit the Financial Aid website, call (630) 942-2251 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For other questions, please contact the Cashier's Office at (630) 942-2206, email email@example.com.
Adding or Withdrawing from CREDIT Classes
Adding a course: Students may register without a permit through the day following the first class meeting (16-Week classes only). As an example, if the class starts on a Monday (M/W/F), a student can register through Tuesday for the class; if the class starts on Tuesday (T/R), a student can register through Wednesday for this class. Exceptions to this rule are courses with required safety training, licensure, accreditation or mandatory seat hours for legal reasons. Students are expected to take full responsibility for making up any missed coursework associated with a late registration. For 16-Week classes only, a $10 late registration fee will be charged for each class registered on or after the second calendar day following the first class meeting.
12-Week, 10-Week, 8-Week and 5-Week classes registered on or after the day the class(es) begins are considered late and students are required to obtain a permit from the instructor. To request a permit to enroll late, go to myaccess.cod.edu and log-in with your username and password. Under the Registration section in the student menu, select Request a Permit. A $10 late registration fee will be charged for each class registered late, on or after its start date.
Withdrawal Procedures: The final day for a student to withdraw from any course will be equal to 75% of the time for the respective academic session (see the Registration Calendar) through myACCESS or in person at the Registration office, Student Services Center (SSC), Room 2221.
After the deadline, students will be required to appeal for late withdrawal and provide appropriate documentation to the Student Registration Services Office for all requests. Students who are granted approval to withdraw by petition will not be eligible for refunds of tuition or fees and will receive a ‘W’ grade on their transcript. Appeals must be submitted prior to the designated final exam period for 16-week classes and before the last class meeting for all other session classes.
Medical Withdrawals: Requests for medical withdrawals should be made to the Dean of Enrollment Services. Send medical forms to Student Registration Services, SSC 2221, (630) 942-2687. Requests should be made in writing and accompanied by documentation from a physician or medical institution to verify the medical condition, date of onset and estimated length of treatment. Request forms for medical withdrawals are reviewed individually. Refunds are issued when appropriate within the guidelines of the College of DuPage refund policy. You will receive written notification of the decision within three (3) weeks from the office of the Student Registration Services.
Automated Prerequisite Checking
Before registering for any course with a listed prerequisite, students are expected to have met the prerequisite requirement(s) or be currently enrolled in the prerequisite course.
Auditing a Class
Intent to audit a credit class must be indicated at the time of registration and the higher audit tuition charge will be assessed. The audit grade of "X" is recorded on the permanent academic record: No credit is earned and the audit grade does not affect the grade point average (GPA).
No student will be assigned an audit grade for any class unless the above registration procedure is observed.
After the first scheduled class meeting, you must obtain written permission from the instructor to register for a credit class. Registration online will no longer be available at this time. Credit classes cannot be added after mid-term (see Registration Calendar).
Adding or Withdrawing from NON-CREDIT Classes
You can register for classes up until the time the class begins. A 100 percent refund is given up to one (1) calendar day before the start of class. Please note that non-attendance does not count as a withdrawal.
The College cannot guarantee that all the classes listed in the online or printed Class Schedule will be available when you register and reserves the right to cancel classes if there is insufficient enrollment. If your class is canceled, you may select another class or receive a full tuition refund.
