In compliance with State Board of Education Rule 6A-14.0541, a 100% refund of tuition and fees will occur only when classes are dropped within the college’s established add-drop time period. Refunds are not issued for classes from which the student withdraws after the established add-drop time period. However, LSSC allows the full refund (100%) of tuition and fees in cases of serious circumstances beyond the student’s control that occur prior to the mid-point (50% of instructional days) of the semester and prevent the student from completing the semester. In the case of mini-mester courses, the circumstances must occur prior to the mid-point of the course. The student’s reasons for pursuing the appeal must be fully explained and documented, in writing, and are limited to the following: involuntary call to military duty, death of the student, illness of the student of such severity and duration that attendance in class is not possible from the onset of the illness through the end of the semester, or technical errors associated with the student’s admission, advising or registration on the part of the college or college staff.
