Effective April 1, 2008, in keeping with the new state-wide enrollment processing policy from the Technical College System of Georgia, Southwest Georgia Technical College instituted a new Drop/Add Policy. You will have the first three (3) days of each semester to drop any or all of the courses in which you are registered. If you drop your course(s) during this period, you will receive a 100% refund of all tuition and applicable fees, will not earn a “W” grade in the class and will not have any hours counted against your financial aid eligibility. If you withdraw from any course(s) after the third instructional day of the semester, you will not receive a refund, you will earn a “W” grade; and the credit hours will count against your financial aid eligibility. Please see the important Calendar dates above.
Effective January 1, 2008, the new state-wide Purging Process of no-shows and non-payers was implemented. This process is summarized below.
Payment for tuition and fees is due by 4:00 p.m. one business day before the first day of each semester. Students who do not have documented Financial Aid or Third Party Pay will be dropped from all courses if payment is not received by the specified date. Students who have been purged (dropped) for non-payment must re-register for classes in the admissions office and make payment at the business office. Late fees will be charged to all students who are purged and re-register. Students who re-register and have not made payment by the 7th calendar day of the semester will be purged (dropped) and will not be allowed to re-register.
Registered students who do not show up for the first day the class meets will be “No-Showed.” Students will have to obtain written permission from the instructor to be readmitted to the class by the Registrar.
