Student Enrollment Agreement
“I understand that when I register for any class at the Connecticut Community Colleges or receive any service from the CCC’s I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees, and other associated costs as a result of my course registration and/or receipt of services. I understand and accept that if I fail to pay by the scheduled due date and fail to make acceptable payment arrangements to bring my account current, CCC’s may refer my delinquent account to a collection agency and the College may no longer accept direct payments. I further understand that if the CCC’s refers my student account balance to a third party for collection, a collection fee may be assessed and that my delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus or be subject to tax-offset. By my signature I acknowledge this statement. By my signature I also acknowledge that I have read and agree to all terms and conditions outlined in the Student Enrollment Agreement: https://www.ct.edu/files/pdfs/Student%20Enrollment%20Agreement-Statement%20of%20Obligation%20-%20Final%20Version.docx
Audit a Course
Students have the option to audit a course. However, full tuition and fees are charged for courses audited. Audit status allows students to participate in class activities without being required to meet the examination requirements of the course. Students may ask to have papers critiqued, but faculty members are not required to grade an auditor’s course work. A student who wishes to change from credit to audit status must request this, using forms available in the Records Office, within the first four weeks of the beginning of the course (29% of the total class meeting time). Students auditing a course may not change back to credit status.
