Academic observation: status when students return after suspension or dismissal. Intervention: Registration holds are placed on students’ records. Students desiring to enroll after suspension or dismissal are required to meet with an advocacy or DSS counselor and request re-admission.  If the request is granted, the advocacy or DSS counselor places the student in academic observation status.

The counselor is authorized to impose reasonable restrictions on students’ subsequent enrollment.

The tuition refund modeler is no longer being used. This section has been changed to read:  

An official schedule change that reduces or terminates a student’s credit load may entitle the student to a refund. The eligibility and amount of a refund is automatically calculated by the date of the withdrawal. Students can find the last day to drop a class with no charge by selecting the important dates link next to their class in the credit class schedule. Through 11:59 p.m. of the listed date, there is no charge for the dropped class. After this date, the student is charged 100% for the dropped class.   

Students who feel individual circumstances warrant exceptions from this policy may file a records action appeal. Instructions for this appeal are online at https://www.mccneb.edu/Prospective-Students/Resources/Student-Services-SOS/Records/RAAP-Records-Action-Appeal-Process.aspx.

Students are responsible for dropping the course(s) if unable to attend. Non-attendance does not relieve students from the obligation to pay.
