Course Withdrawal, Refund, and Other Policies

Drop/Withdrawal

Noncredit students: Notification of withdrawal or drop must be given, and requests for refunds for noncredit courses must be received, by midnight five days before the first class session. Refunds are not given after this time. Withdrawal or drop must be requested via the student portal, by the student. Please login to the student portal and select the drop button. If the drop button does not appear on your enrollment history, please email learn@pdx.edu.

Please allow four to six weeks for processing.

100% refund:            Midnight, five days before the first day of class

0% refund:                12:01 a.m., four days before the first day of class or later

Note: If you pay the regular rate for a class and switch to a later section with an early bird discount, the early bird discount will not apply. 

Missed Class Time

As a noncredit academic center, our in-person courses do not have exams or letter grades. Passing a course is solely based on full attendance and participation. Students should make sure that their name is called during attendance. Students who miss more than 20% of any individual course must make up the missed time during a future section of the course in order to pass. Please be in touch with your program manager if you need to miss class time or have any questions.

Cancellations

If insufficient enrollment or any other significant reason necessitates canceling a course, we will contact those students who have registered, and course fees will be refunded. 

Length of Program 

Courses can be taken individually or can be applied to a certificate within a three-year limit. Courses completed outside of the three-year limit will need to be retaken to qualify for certificate completion.
