You must be officially enrolled by the first day of the course to attend.
Credits & Credit Load
The academic year is divided into three quarters of approximately 11 weeks each. There is also a summer quarter of approximately seven weeks. The normal course load per quarter is 15 credit hours; however, Peninsula College considers 12 credits to be full-time.
Peninsula College requires all students to register for classes prior to the start of each quarter. Changes to your courses (adding or dropping) should be made before the start of the quarter. This can be done on the college website at www.pencol.edu or by filling out the student add/drop form, which is available in the Student Services Office.
Withdrawal from Courses
You may withdraw from courses up to one month (30 calendar days, with the exception of summer quarter) prior to the last instructional day of the quarter. For regular scheduled classes, if a class is dropped during the first two weeks of the quarter, a grade will not appear on the transcript. After the first two weeks, a grade of “W,” which is not used in computing grade point averages, will be entered on the official transcript. Individuals must officially drop a class in person at Student Services, on the College website www.pencol.edu, or by calling (360) 417-6340. Informing the instructor does not constitute a withdrawal.
Refund of Tuition and Course Fees
A full refund of tuition and course fees will be made to a student:
1.Who withdraws from the college prior to the sixth instructional day of the quarter for which registration and course fees were applied.
2.Who withdraws prior to the first seminar or class session of self-support courses.
3.For any class canceled by the college.
Fifty percent of tuition only will be made to a student who withdraws from the college on or after the sixth day of instruction, but within twenty calendar days including the first scheduled day of the quarter. Note: Refund policy may differ for condensed quarters and/or early or late starting classes. Contact Pirate Central at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-417-6340 for more information.
