Drop vs. Withdrawal: Withdrawal is defined as the dropping of your entire program (all classes) in a given semester, as opposed to dropping a portion (individual classes) of your program. If you are registered for one course and you drop that one course, you will have withdrawn from the semester. If you are registered for two courses and drop one, you still maintain registration and it is just considered a drop, not a withdrawal.

NON-REFUNDABLE FEES:

  • $395 - CVN fee (per course)
  • $105- Transcript fee (one-time fee)

Please Note: CVN no longer offers courses for audit.
