Refund and Non-Activity/Attendance Policy

Tuition Refund Policy

Students who drop during the first seven calendar days of an eCourse will receive a 100% refund of enrollment fees*.​ Students who drop after the first seven calendar days of a course will not receive a refund. If a student withdraws from a course after the first seven calendar days of the online course, the student is responsible for the total fees incurred. 

*Refunds that are to be issued, will be issued back to the original form of payment. 

Last Day to receive a “W”

To receive a "W" on a student’s transcript, the student must withdraw from the eCourse by the date posted for the session. To view the last day to withdraw with a “W” and other session dates please visit the BARTonline Academic Calendar page. After the last day to drop with a “W” has passed eCourses cannot be dropped.
