Return to: Services for Students
After completing the admissions, assessment and advising processes, students must complete the registration process each semester. A Schedule of Classes is available on-line prior to the registration period. Consult the on-line calendar for registration details.
Students must have all financial obligations from prior terms paid before they will be permitted to register for additional courses.
Add, Drop, Withdrawal, Cancellation of Classes and Refunds
Aims Community College must retain the customary right to cancel course offerings where enrollment is too low to make a course educationally sound and economically efficient. Course cancellations will result in a full refund.
Adding, Dropping, or Withdrawing from Classes
Adding of classes must be done by the course Add Deadline (within the first 7% of the course). After the deadline has passed, adding courses may be done on an exception basis only if space is available and both the instructor and the Registrar have given written permission to enroll.
Dropping of classes must be done by the course Drop Deadline (within the first 15% of the course). Classes dropped by the drop deadline will result in a full refund.
Withdrawing from classes must be done by the course Withdrawal Deadline (after the Drop Deadline, but before the point marking 75% of the course). Withdrawing from a course will generate a final grade of “W” on the student’s academic transcript and does not impact the student’s grade point average. All tuition and fee obligations still apply; a withdrawal does not qualify for a refund.
If the student does not withdraw by the withdrawal deadline, the faculty will assign the final grade earned. If the student qualifies, the instructor may (at his or her discretion) assign an “Incomplete” as a final grade status (see Grading System ).
Student are responsible for properly adding, dropping, and withdrawing. Students SHOULD NOT expect to be dropped due to non-attendance. Telephone requests for adds, drops, or withdrawals cannot be accepted, however, telephone assistance is available to direct the student through the process.
Tuition Adjustment Appeals
Students who have withdrawn from course(s) from the college due to extenuating circumstances, may file a Tuition Adjustment Appeal. Tuition Adjustment Appeals must be submitted within one year from the end of the semester being requested and the student needs to supply documentation to support extenuating circumstances. Students can contact the Cashier’s Office or go to http://www.aims.edu/student/cashier/appeals/ for forms, guidelines and additional information.
Under specific conditions, the College grants refunds for tuition and course fees to students who drop courses by the specified deadline. Students are responsible for dropping their courses by the published deadline, even if they have never attended. Courses can be dropped on-line or at the Student Enrollment Offices at any campus. To be eligible for a refund, a DROP must be submitted by the deadline in person or on-line. In cases of emergency, a student may submit a letter to the Student Enrollment Office. The date the request is received in the Student Enrollment Office will be used in determining eligibility for the refund. If the student was provided assistance from College funds or funds managed by the College, the refund will be returned to the appropriate scholarship/grant fund or applied to the student’s note in the loan fund. Refunds will be made in accordance with the following schedule:
- On or before the Drop Deadline: 100% refund.
- After the Drop Deadline, but on or before the Withdrawal deadline: no refund.

Students must have a valid social security number to participate in either cooperative registration agreement.
