Add Drop Withdraw Refunds

Definitions

Drop: A course drop is allowed through the fifth business day of the term or through the first business day after the first scheduled class meeting, whichever is later. A dropped course does not appear on your transcript and does not impact academic standing. Tuition and fee charges are reversed/refunded for a course that is dropped.  

IMPORTANT: See Calendar (and select only the “Payment, Refunds, Financial Aid” checkbox) for TERM start dates. NHCC has three (3) distinct terms - Fall (begins late-August), Spring (begins mid-January), and Summer (begins late-May). Most classes begin during the first week of each term, and are therefore subject to the five-day add/drop period. However, NHCC also offers LATE-START classes (classes that begin after the first week of the term). The add/drop period for LATE-START classes is limited to the first business day following the first scheduled class meeting.

Withdraw: A course withdraw is allowed after the add/drop period has ended and through approximately 80% of the term/course. A withdraw is recorded on your transcript as a W and does impact academic standing.

Total Withdraw: Tuition and fee refunds are issued only for a total withdraw within the refund period (see schedule below). A total withdraw is a withdraw from all courses for the term. No refunds are issued for partial withdraws.

Remember: All registration transactions (add/drop/withdraw) are conducted online through eServices.
