Payment must be made in full, including any minimum balance, within seven calendar days after the semester begins. If you enroll after the semester has started, students have seven calendar days to pay for the course in full. Not making payment will result in students not receiving access to the courses and the possibility of being dropped. Login information will not be sent until full payment has been received.

Access to Class:

Information on how to access FlexNet courses will be sent to students once we are within 2-3 days prior to the start of the term and all tuition and fees are paid. A Welcome Email is sent to a student’s Iowa Central email account along with any personal email accounts given on an application.

Login and Orientation Requirements:

If you do not login to each of your FlexNet courses within two (2) weeks of your start date, you will be Administratively Withdrawn from your course. This two week period also includes your time to complete the FlexNet Student Orientation. You need to complete the orientation before gaining access to your course.


Textbooks are required in most all of the FlexNet courses. Information on the specific textbook or other required materials can be found within the course in iNET or on the Iowa Central online bookstore website.

Withdraw Info/Refund:

You must complete the Withdrawal Request form (found in WebAdvisor). Withdrawal dates will be listed in the welcome email once a student is enrolled.

To drop a course, students should log-in to WebAdvisor and click on “Withdraw/Drop a Course” to complete the online drop form. Students choosing not to drop the class using the online drop procedure must pick up a Change of Enrollment form in the Student Records Office, obtain the instructor’s signature, and return the form to the Student Records Office for processing.

If your withdraw date qualifies for tuition credit, it will be calculated in accordance with the current college refund policy. Refunds are based upon the number of calendar days (including Saturday and Sunday) in the course between the start and end date.

You must consult your Welcome Email for your specific refund schedule dates. A copy of your Welcome Email is also saved in your WebAdvisor account. Look for the link titled “Internet Welcome Information”.
