Where do I get my books?
We temporarily set up a bookstore in a classroom at the Butler Service Center. After that the books are returned to Andover (the nearest campus with a bookstore). You will then need to go to Andover to get your books. The Andover site is located East of Wichita at 1810 N. Andover Rd, Andover KS. Feel free to call them with questions regarding availability and hours 733-0071.
When is the last day I can drop and still get my money back?
You can withdraw from a class with 100% refund anytime before the class starts. If the class has already started and you are early enough for a refund- you will be charged a $10 drop fee. The rule is that a student may withdraw from a class and still get a refund as long as it is before 1/16 of the class time. Since we have so many different class lengths running, it is best to consult with an Academic Advisor to ensure accuracy of this date. For some courses (distance learning) this date may be before the class has even met.
When is the last day I can drop at all?
As stated above, this date is hard to pinpoint without knowing the length of the class time. The standard is that you can not be past 9/16 of the class time. This may be before the second class period for some distance learning classes. It is best to consult the Academic Advisor for specific date information.
