Refund Policy: Summer SemesterDuring the summer semester, students are eligible for a refund during the first three school days that they have access to the course. A student is considered to have access to a course once the semester starts after any of the following occurs: (1) completing the student orientation course, (2) opting out of the student orientation course, or (3) moved into the course on the last start date of the semester.To withdraw from a course, students should go to the enrollments page and request withdrawal. The facilitator does not need to approve the withdrawal during the summer semester. If a student is eligible for a refund, the withdrawal process will automatically initiate a refund. There is a $25 processing fee subtracted from the refund amount. Students who have had course access for more than three school days are not eligible for a refund.Note that if a student moves from one course to another after the registration period has closed that is not grounds for a refund. If a request is made to move a student from a full unit AB course to a half credit A or B course, no partial refund will be issued nor will any partial credit carry over to subsequent semesters.Withdrawal PolicyTo withdraw from a course, students should go to the enrollments page and request withdrawal. The facilitator must then approve the withdrawal during fall and spring semesters but not in the summer. Students can be withdrawn at any point in the semester except during the last five school days. The deadline to request a withdrawal for Summer 2013 is July 3.Late Work Policy:Technical difficulties are not an excuse for assignments to be late.

Many public libraries offer computers with internet access. Additionally, GaVS courses can be accessed on a variety of mobile devices so it may be that a mobile device could be used to complete some coursework when there are computer problems.Please be aware of the pacing guide and...
