Course Cancellation Policy
Non-guaranteed courses will be taught only if they have sufficient enrollment. Normally, courses with enrollment of less than 7 students will be canceled. In order to meet the needs of as many students as possible, courses will be canceled in accordance with the following procedure: at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 16 for the first term and 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 21 for the second term, two lists of courses, “Canceled Courses” and “Courses Subject to Cancellation,” will be posted on the Summer Session web page and in the Summer Session and Registrar’s Offices. Students enrolled in cancelled courses will be notified by email. Students can also call the Summer Session Office (540-464-7213) to check on the status of a course.
Courses with enrollments of 4 or fewer students as of the registration deadline for each session.
A student enrolled in a course that has been canceled who does not wish to add a course need do nothing further. The Student Accounting Office will credit your account or process a refund. Students who have paid for room and board or registered a car and wish to drop out of the Summer Session should report to the Summer Session Office. Students, who wish to add, drop, or change a course may do so in the Summer Session Office, in 303 Shell Hall, at the times listed above.
