Ox-Bow Drop Policy

Please read carefully, Ox-Bow's drop policy is not the same as SAIC's drop policy.

To drop a course, students must submit the request in writing to using Ox-Bow's online drop form. Call (800) 318-3019 for more information. Simply not attending does not constitute a drop. Additionally, it is not possible to drop an Ox-Bow course through the SAIC Portal or through the SAIC Registrar.  

The following drop fees will be assessed dependent on when you drop your course:

  • From the first day of registration until 4:30 pm on Friday, April 21: Students will receive a full refund minus a $100 drop fee.
  • If you drop after Friday, April 21 until 3 weeks prior to your first day of class: Students will receive a full refund minus $250 drop fee + any lab fees associated with the class.
  • If you drop within 3 weeks of the start date of your class: No refunds will be given. Drops due to an unforeseen emergency (i.e. hospitalization, etc.) are eligible to be contested through the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Refund Review Board. Documentation is required and refunds are typically partial. Please contact Ox-Bow’s registrar at or (800) 318-3019 for refund review forms and information.
