Withdrawal and Refund Policy

Course Withdrawals

Withdrawals can be processed through COIN or by completing a Withdrawal Form. Please fax the withdrawal form to 508.910.6420 Attention University Enrollment Center. Withdrawal forms are also available at the University Enrollment Center. Because withdrawal forms require a signature, telephone requests cannot be accepted as notification of withdrawal.

Attention Students: If you do not officially withdraw from your class; you will be graded for the course.

If a course should officially cancel, you will be notified before the course begins. Please keep your contact information up to date with us, or we may not be able to reach you. You may update your contact information through COIN. If you do not receive such a notice, you are expected to attend the first day of classes to confirm your class is running. Students whose class has been cancelled are entitled to a full refund, including tuition & fees.

Refunds for course drops sent by mail or fax are computed according to the date received. Refunds take approximately twenty (20) business days to process.

Cancellation of Courses

University Extension is self-funded and receives no financial support from the Commonwealth. Each class requires a predetermined minimum number of students for confirmation. Therefore, students are urged to register early. If a course is to be cancelled due to low enrollment, this decision will be made as early as possible, at least one (1) week prior to their start date whenever possible. University Extension reserves the right to cancel, combine sections, change meeting patterns, re-assign classroom space and instructors of courses.

Please Note:

You will be notified by email to your UMass Dartmouth email account if your course has been cancelled. Please keep your contact information up to date with us so that we may reach you. You may check and update your current contact information online through COIN.
