Should a student choose not to attend a nurse aide class, it is the student’s responsibility to officially drop the class at least one day prior to the class start date in order not to be responsible for the tuition and associated fees. Students who never attend a class and did not drop the class at least one day prior to the start date are responsible for payment for the class. After a class begins, a student may officially withdraw as long as it is before the final exam. If a student withdraws, the student would receive a final grade of a “W”. The student is still responsible for full payment for the class. If a student does not officially withdraw or drop a class, the student will receive a failing grade of an “E” on their transcript.
