Except for medical withdrawal due to covered injury or sickness, students withdrawing from the College during the first 31 days of the period for which coverage is purchased shall not be covered under the policy and a full refund of the premium will be made. Students withdrawing after 31 days will remain covered under the policy for which the premium was paid and no refund will be allowed. Students who do not withdraw completely, but who drop below nine credit hours within the first 31 days, may apply to the Student Payment Office for a refund of health insurance premiums. Registering for mini-semester, web courses, Telecourses, and Center for Self-Directed Learning courses later in the fall or spring semester may restore the student’s obligation to carry health insurance.
