If a student drops during any of the refund periods, the student still has to pay the $45.00 nonrefundable processing fee. If the student does not pay the $45.00 fee, a hold will be placed on the student’s record. A hold will prohibit the student from receiving grades, future registration at COM or the release of student records for any purpose.
