Unless noted below, all College of Professional Studies (CPS) policies apply to Open Learning Academy courses.

Administrative Withdrawal Policy

Students are required to complete 75% of the course material in order to receive credit for the course. If a student falls more than two weeks behind, they cannot meet this requirement and will be administratively withdrawn (W) from the course.  Withdrawing from a course occurs within the first four weeks.  After the fourth week, students will receive an F grade.

Summary of Program Costs for the Academic Year 2018-2019

Tuition per credit, online $346.00
Mandatory fee per online credit hour 30.00

There may be additional costs associated with certain courses for text books, materials, laboratory fees, and computer access charges.

Business Regulations

All charges are due at time of enrollment.  Federal financial aid and payment plans are not available for these courses..  Students are expected to make payment in full at the time of registration. Deferments are not available to students seeking employee reimbursement.  In addition to e-check payments, Doane accepts Visa, American Express, MasterCard, and Discover for settlement of accounts with a 2.75% (non-refundable) convenience fee.

Veteran Benefits

Deferments payment plans are granted to students who have certified military benefits to cover the entire balance of the current term.  However, if these benefits do not cover the balance 100%, the student is responsible for the difference by the first day of the term.  Open Learning Academy courses are not eligible for VA Chapter 33 Yellow Ribbon benefits. 


Registration constitutes a financial contractual agreement between Doane University and the enrollee.

If a student withdraws from college prior to the official start of a term, all tuition and fees are refunded. After the term begins, through the 7th day, a student who withdraws is refunded 40% of tuition and fees for all classes.  After the 7th day, no refund is available.
