Withdrawal/Drop, Refund, & Cancellation Policy

Notification of withdrawal or drop may be made:

  • by phone at TEL 503-725-8561
  • in writing via email: confucius@pdx.edu,
  • or in person in KMC building Room 660

Requests for refunds are required in writing.

Refund amount is determined by the postmarked date on the written drop notification or at the time of the in-person drop, based on the schedule below. The schedule applies to Confucius Institute non-credit courses which follow the PSU term schedule.

If registration took place through a third party or group, you will need to contact your third party/group coordinator. Refunds for third party/group registrations must be requested by the third party/group contact person.

Withdraw date    Refund Amount
Class cancellation by the Confucius Institute 100%
Prior to second class meeting  100%
Prior to third class meeting  70%
Prior to fourth class meeting  40%
Prior to fifth class meeting   20%

Confucius Institute non-credit courses are offered on a self-support basis. Therefore, a decision to hold the class is based on enrollment. If insufficient enrollment or any other significant reason necessitates canceling a course, an effort will be made to contact those students who have preregistered, and course fees will be refunded. 

Exceptions for any of the above policies must be approved by the Director of the Confucius Institute at PSU.
