Attendance & Refund Policies - Summer Session
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 A student who has been withdrawn from all courses will not be eligible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.
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
