Some credit courses have additional fees for materials. Please see the course description for information.
A Winterim course requires a minimum enrollment, and the College reserves the right to cancel a course if this minimum is not met.
- Course Cancellation: If the College cancels a course, students are granted full refunds.
- 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.

- For four-week courses:
- Before the end of the third day of classes, 80% of the tuition payment will be refunded
- Starting on the fourth day of classes, 0% refund.

Anyone who is qualified for and wishes to use a tuition waiver must indicate this at the time of registration. Only tuition waivers for SMCM faculty, staff, and dependents will be accepted for the Winterim session. No other waivers will be accepted. The Winterim 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.
