*Except during Spring Break, once online classes begin, they run through the 8-week module without a break, regardless

of the University Calendar. NOTE: All BU Online module courses must be complete by midnight of the Saturday of the 8th week.

Chat sessions may or may not be held on holidays (consult Instructor), but class assignments are ongoing.

DROP/WITHDRAW NOTE: For modular courses, the last day to drop a class with no record is BEFORE the first scheduled chat; the last day to withdraw with a “W” is before the 4th scheduled chat session. For semester-long courses, on-campus dates above apply.

Summer sessions and MBA graduate program dates will vary slightly.

The University reserves the right to cancel any class for which there is not sufficient registration.

Admission to class for those who pay special tuition or audit is on a “space available” basis.

Fees are subject to change without notification. If withdrawal is not made officially, the student will receive an “F” for the course taken and will be charged in full.

Check the University Catalog for other academic policies.

Visit the tuition and costs page to find information on tuition, room and board, and other fees.

The Refund Policy can be found on the Student Accounts page. Online account statements can be viewed in Netclassroom.
