I dropped a Tuesday/Thursday class and added a Monday/Wednesday class. Why do I owe fees?
FAQ Answer: If the class added is the same as the class that was dropped , then the fees should remain the same. However , if you drop 3.0 hr class and add a 4.0 hr class , then the fees will increase. Additionally , a DSCC class that is exchanged with a TN eCampus eLearn class will result in an increase in fees because there are additional fees associated with TN eCampus eLearn classes. If your schedule change was due to an institution cancellation, your fees will be corrected.
