Refund Policy

The activity fee for PED015, or fees incurred due to dropping PED015, will be charged to the college bill during the semester the class is being held. An overnight camping trip is part of the class, and many of these expenses are incurred in preparation for the quad. The following fee policy is in place to account for these expenses: 

  • Dropping PED015 during the add/drop period of the first 5 days of classes provides for a full refund.
  • Withdrawing from PED015 after the add/drop period and during the 2nd week of classes incurs a $200 late withdrawal fee.
  • Withdrawing from PED015 during the 3rd week of classes incurs a $300 late withdrawal fee.
  • Withdrawing from PED015 during the 5th week of classes incurs a $400 late withdrawal fee.

*Students must visit the La Vida Office first if they are considering whether to drop the class or not. La Vida or Discovery is required as part of the first-year experience whether the student plans to graduate from Gordon or not. The student must complete a petition with the La Vida Office indicating why a drop is imperative and when the student plans to meet the outdoor education requirement.
