Cancellations and Refunds

Students must officially cancel registrations for distance education courses in which they no longer intend to participate. Not finishing a course without canceling or receiving an extension will result in a failing grade. Students who are not able to finish their courses within the specified time frames must contact their instructors regarding the possibility of extensions. Instructors reserve the right to issue incompletes (I) and grant extensions, or to issue failing (F) grades if course expectations are not met within the specified course time frame.

To ensure the correct refund for a cancelled course, contact Continuing Education staff at (218) 726-8113 before canceling a course.
