Students may drop and add courses per the Add/Drop Policy as follows:

Dropping Courses

To prevent the need to drop courses, students are encouraged to preview the syllabus of their course to ensure they are prepared for the nature and rigor of the work. To get a general idea of what a Mizzou Academy course may be like, students can also review the first lesson of our sample History Course.

Tuition Credit

Upon the course drop date, tuition payment will be credited to the student’s account (in the amount according to the schedule above) and less any other fees incurred. Please note $10 is deducted from the drop credit for every graded item.

Spending Tuition Credit

Students may use the balance on their account towards other enrollments or fees as assessed. Tuition credit cannot be used towards the purchase of textbooks. Students must get approval for the new course enrollment using the same process as they did for the original enrollment.

Refunding Account Balance Credits

Student accounts with credit balances (unused funds) will be automatically refunded the next upcoming refund date, with processing occurring in March, June, and October. Students may request a refund of the account balance prior to the next cycle by sending an email request to Please include the student’s first and last name and date of birth in the request. Refunds are issued in the payment form they were received and to the original payer.
