Attendance & Refund Policies
 VMI Summer Session

Class Attendance

The intensive nature of Summer Session work requires class attendance. Only the Director or the Deputy Director of the Summer Session may excuse a student from class. In case of serious illness or an emergency, the Director may waive the attendance rule. Students are responsible for all class assignments, supplementary readings, and lecture material. A grade of zero may be assigned for work missed because of unexcused absences. Instructors will keep attendance records and a student will be assigned a "W" or "WF" when his or her absences, whether excused or not, equal fifteen per cent of the class or laboratory periods. A student who has been withdrawn from all courses will not be eligible to attend classes or use any VMI facilities. 

Refund Policy

Tuition is refundable in part only upon official notice of withdrawal to the Director of the VMI Summer Session. Tuition will be refunded in full prior to the end of the drop/add period. After the drop/add period, but prior to the 7th day of classes, 25% of tuition will be refunded. Tuition will not be refunded on or after the 7th day of classes. Charges for meals will be refunded on a pro rata basis. Parking fees are refundable only if registration is cancelled prior to the beginning of classes. The refund policy for study abroad programs can be found in the "Summer Study Abroad" section of this catalog. Exceptions to the refund policy are made only in extraordinary circumstances. Appeals may be made to the Tuition Appeals Committee upon written request to the VMI Comptroller, no later than 60 days after withdrawal from the course or Summer Session.
