    A: There are several reasons to consider.

  • Residency status undetermined - The most common reason is because students have yet to return their residency declaration and supporting documents to the Office of Admissions.
  • Georgia Residents - If you live in one of our surrounding Georgia counties (Brooks, Echols, Lowndes, or Thomas) the next county waiver might not be applied. This is an extra step that has to happen after you register each term. Email Financial Aid with your name and Student ID/G# and ask them to review your bill.
  • Third Attempts - Your tuition will be higher if you are attempting a class for a third time. You may speak with your academic advisor about submitting a petition for exemption from full cost of instruction. Your petition may or may not be approved by the dean.
  • Repeating a Passed Course – You may be registered in a non-repeatable class for which you have already earned a grade of “C” or higher. Most classes are not repeatable. Review your schedule carefully and contact your academic advisor if you have questions.

  • A: There are several reasons to consider:

  • Class Start Date - Classes open in D2L on the first day of class. Login on the first day of class to review the content, including the syllabus and first week assignments. It is important that you complete these first assignments or you may be dropped from class for not participating.
  • Bill Unpaid – Tuition and fees are due by the deadline published in the College Calendar and the date will show on your schedule/bill. If your tuition is not paid or secured in full with financial aid, you may be dropped for non-payment. Contact the Business Office at 850-973-1610 to pay fees by phone or ask about getting reinstated before the deadline.
  • Instructor Drops – Instructors verify initial attendance during the first few days of class. If you don’t complete the first assignments in your class, your instructor may report you as a no show and dropped from the class. If you believe this happened in error, contact your instructor to ask if they made a mistake and if they will allow you back in. Your instructor will need to contact the Office of Enrollment Services to request that you get reinstated.
