Refund/Withdrawal Policy

All course registration fees must be paid before UIC Extended Campus (UIC EC) can confirm a seat for you.

We recognize students may occasionally need to cancel their registration. To withdraw from a course, you must make a written request to our office (via e-mail or fax (312) 413-9730).

Refunds will be issued per the schedule below:

UIC Extended Campus

Refund:
At least 5 business days before the course start date.You may receive a 100% refund or defer your full registration fee to another class without penalty. If you choose to defer your enrollment, you must register for the new class within one year of the start date of the original class. After one year, deferral credit will be forfeited.
Fewer than 5 business days before the course start date, but before 5 p.m. Central Time on the last business day before the course start date.You may receive a 50% refund or defer your full registration fee to another class without penalty. If you choose to defer your enrollment, you must register for the new class within one year of the start date of the original class. After one year, deferral credit will be forfeited.

We regret that we cannot provide any refunds for withdrawal requests received after 5 p.m. Central Time on the business day before class begins. Non-attendance or non-participation does not constitute withdrawal.

Courses are subject to cancellation if minimum enrollments are not met. In the event UIC EC cancels a course, students will be notified immediately and provided a full refund. UIC EC also reserves the right to cancel or reschedule individual class meetings as needed, for example, due to instructor illness.

We understand that employers occasionally register staff in a course. At any time prior to the first class meeting, the employer may name a substitute for a registered staff member who is unable to attend. Companies must call, write or e-mail us to report the change.
