The College reserves the right, in those instances
where a student is deemed to be in serious violation of College
policy, to initiate cancellation of the student's
registration. If such cancellation occurs after the semester
begins, tuition charges will be adjusted accordingly, and a
grade of "AW" (Administrative Withdrawal) will be
entered on the student's transcript.
A satisfactory settlement of all college accounts is required before grades are released, or degrees conferred. Likewise, no request will be honored for transcripts of record, recommendations, or other information concerning academic records unless a student's account has been settled in full.
