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 Ox-Bow’s registrar. 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 p.m. on Monday, May 4th: Students will receive a full refund minus a $100 drop fee.
  • If you drop after May 4th until 3 weeks prior to your first day of class: Students will receive a full refund minus $250 drop fee.
  • 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.  Please contact Ox-Bow’s registrar at or
    (800) 318-3019 for the refund review forms and information.
