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 December 7th: Students will receive a full refund minus a $250 drop fee and any associated lab fees.

  • If you drop after December 7th: 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. Proper documentation is required and refunds are typically partial. Please contact Ox-Bow’s registrar at ox-bow@saic.edu or (800) 318-3019 for further information.
