Beginning with the first day of classes, if you drop below full-time status, or below your originally registered credit level, your tuition may be adjusted.
Note that if you drop and then add the same number of credits after classes begin, your tuition may still be adjusted. Only if you drop and add the same number of credits on the same day before midnight (ET) will you receive $0 in tuition adjustments.
Adjustments for tuition will be determined on the effective drop date. Any adjustment of charges will be made according to Penn State's Tuition Adjustment Policy. The longer you stay in the course, the higher the percentage of tuition that you will be charged. You can find tuition adjustment timing and percentages for your classes in LionPATH by selecting Enrollment and then Drop Classes, and then selecting the “Tuition Calendar $” link in the "Tuition Calendar" column for each course.
