Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will my degree earned via distance learning be the same?
A: Yes, programs are of the same high-quality, accredited education expected at UC. Distance courses are as rigorous and content rich as those offered in traditional classroom settings.
Q: What is the refund policy for dropping a course?
A: All registrants must officially drop classes by the end of the eighth calendar day or appropriate Session date as designated by the distance learning program to remove their tuition-related charges and to receive a 100% refund of tuition billed for the semester. No refund is given if after a class is dropped the student remains full-time. Part-time students and full-time students dropping to part-time will receive credit on their account of instructional fees, general fees, ITIE fees, and non-resident surcharges based upon the date of the drop, according to the published schedule. The amount refunded is based on credit balances and (if applicable) the amount and type of financial aid the student has received.
