Administrative Withdrawal: If class absences exceed 25 percent of scheduled meetings, a student
       will be administratively withdrawn from a class. Automatic attendance notifications are sent when the
       number of absences exceed 15 percent and then again at 20 percent. School-sponsored absences do
       count towards these percentages, but the policy for contacting instructors prior to any such absences
       to arrange for missed work in advance is in place to prevent such absences from impacting a course
       grade. Students should talk to instructors about their absences and work with them to make plans
       for success before the 25 percent is exceeded. Students need to check an instructor’s or program’s
       attendance policy in the course syllabus, which may be more specific and grade-related.
       Student-Initiated Withdrawal: If you no longer wish to be enrolled in a class, you are expected
       to withdraw from the course using the online drop form which is located in WebAdvisor. Students
       choosing to not use the online drop procedure must pickup 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. Failure to process a Change of Enrollment form will result in the grade of “F”
       on your transcript. The last day to drop a 15-week course in the Fall Semester is November 18; the
       last day to drop a 15-week course in the Spring Semester is April 7.

       Bookstore Return Policy
       Students may return textbooks for credit at the Iowa Central Bookstore for the first five days of the
       official College calendar. To get full credit, present your receipt, and appropriate identification along
       with the textbook in the same condition as it was sold. Adjustments will be made for the credit given
       for textbooks that have been written in.
       After the first five days of classes and during buy-back week at the end of the each semester, the credit
       given for qualifying textbooks will be up to 50% of the purchase price paid at the beginning of the
       semester. Books that cannot be returned for credit include: workbooks, books containing software,
       or textbooks that will not be used for classes in the future.
       The Bookstore does not pay cash for returned books. Instead, all credit for returned books will be
       applied to the students college account balance. If the returned book transaction creates a credit
       balance on the students account, a refund check will be issued to the student within ten calendar days
       by the Iowa Central Business Office.
