Students may be administratively withdrawn for past due payments. A certificate of completion will not be given to any student who has a payment plan balance. Students with payment plans who withdraw are subject to the terms and conditions of the LCJVS Withdrawal/Refund Policy. Payment in full is expected for any withdrawals after the refund period.
