A summer course requires a minimum enrollment, and the College reserves the right to cancel a course if this minimum is not met.

- Drop/Withdraw from Credit Courses: If a student withdraws from a course, the tuition refund is computed according to the refund schedule below from the day on which the drop/add form is processed. If a refund is due the student, students should complete a refund request form available at the Business Office at that time.

Anyone who is qualified for and wishes to use a tuition waiver must indicate this at time of registration. Only tuition waivers for SMCM faculty, staff, and dependents will be accepted for summer session. No other waivers will be accepted. Summer session courses have to meet minimum enrollment numbers before waivers can be accommodated. Registering for a course does not automatically mean the tuition waiver can be applied.
