Withdrawals and Tuition Refunds
The last day to withdraw from courses depends on your course length and start / end dates. Please check in myACC [Student page -> Registration Tools -> Detailed Student Schedule (with Drop-Withdrawal Dates)] for the drop / withdrawal date for each of your courses. At this time, to avoid impacts to students’ financial aid and to not lose the time and energy you have already invested in courses, we encourage you to wait to make a decision to withdraw. While we realize the uncertainty and unknown is challenging, ACC faculty and staff are committed to helping you continue to make progress in your courses in this challenging time. If you are receiving financial aid, do not withdraw without discussing the impact on your financial aid status.
ACC and the Community College System of Colorado do not have a tuition refund process, however there is an Appeal for Tuition Credit process. Please refer to this process if you do decide to withdraw from your courses.
Any student wishing to request a disability-related accommodation in connection with the ACC Mask Policy should contact Brian Grewe in Disability Access Services by phone at 303.797.5610 or by email brian [dot] grewe [at] arapahoe [dot] edu.
If a student has a personal health condition that prevents them from wearing a mask/facial covering in alignment with public health orders and no other form of personal protective covering or equipment is suitable based on their disability or health condition, the student will need to contact Disability Access Services (DAS) to discuss the process of providing medical documentation or discussing the inability to wear a mask.
The student will be asked to provide DAS with documentation written by a licensed professional about their disability that:
- Verifies that the individual meets the ADA definition of disability (i.e., has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities),
- Explains the reasons why a mask exemption is needed,
- Shows the relationship between the individual's disability and the need for the requested mask accommodation.
The documentation will be reviewed by the DAS Director and the Dean of Students. If this accommodation is granted, then DAS will then provide the student with a full-face shield that must be work while on any of the ACC Campuses. Wearing the face shield is not optional. The student will also receive a mask exemption card on a yellow lanyard card. Students can wear the lanyard card while on campus. Wearing yellow lanyard is optional as we will not require students to disclose their disability status. If students are not wearing the lanyard, they may be asked if they have received permission to not wear a mask before entering a college facility.
Mask-related accommodations available to students taking ACC Concurrent Enrollment classes on a high school campus may be subject to different guidelines as a result of differences in health, safety, and education requirements for high schools.
Other Examples of reasonable accommodations for students with a mask accommodation
Remote / Virtual Options
- Allow the student to take courses that are offered online.
- Offer Student Services appointments by telephone or video call for a student. This includes Advising, DAS, Financial Aid, ACC tutoring, and a number of other services and supports.
