If a student maintains between 12 and 18 credit hours, dropping and adding courses
does not result in a change in the block rate. College-based and course-based fees
may be affected, depending on the drop/add date. See the Enrollment Guide for refund periods.
If a student is originally enrolled in fewer than 12 hours, the tuition and University-wide
fees they are charged are based on per credit hour amounts. If a student adds a
course putting them at or above 12 hours, there will be an adjustment to their bursar
account to reflect the block rate. This will be the case regardless of whether the
course is added during the first 2 weeks of the semester, or if a short course is
added later in the semester.
If a student paying the block rate drops to fewer than 12 credit hours during the
nonrestrictive or restrictive drop/add period, their charges are adjusted to remove
the block rate and will reflect per credit hour charges for all coursework.
Withdrawing from a course after the restrictive drop/add period does not affect a
student’s block rate status.
