CWU Continuing Education Refunds

Credit Programs

The department adheres to CWU’s refund policies for academic credit programs. For more information please refer to the Office of the Registrar for current policies.

Non-Credit Courses, Boot Camps, & Summer Camps

Official withdrawal procedures must be followed. A 50% refund for all non-credit courses within the department will be granted if

1) The office is informed at least 3 business days prior to the start date of the course.
2) The notice is in writing.

No refund will be granted after this time.

Third Party Online Courses

No refunds will be granted for online personal enrichment and professional development courses (clock hours, PDUs, and CEUs) provided in cooperation with partnering organizations, institutions or companies (VESi, Ed2Go, etc.).


If the minimum enrollment of a course is not met 3 days prior to the first day of class, CWU Continuing Education may cancel the course at its discretion. Participants will be notified at this time.

If the course or program is cancelled, a full refund will be issued.

Refund Petition

If hardships or extraordinary circumstances exist, the registrant may petition for a refund. The form must be completed with all required supporting documents to be considered. CE will review to determine if any refund will be issued and if so, to what extent (full or partial).

Additional Information

As a self-support department, CE does not accept waivers. Some courses/classes may have additional fees; please review university policies for more information.

Note: Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawing.

To ensure a positive learning experience, all students, in any CE course, have the responsibility to be familiar and comply with all university policies and procedures, specifically those governing student behaviors.
