Concerned about the possibility of needing to drop a class?

CBA has a flexible drop policy. No refunds are made on any fees already charged, but if you notify Finance Manager, Ali Brent at [email protected] that you want to drop a class, we will discontinue any further charges to your account. Tuition is charged on the first of each month — if you must drop a class, notify us by the end of the month to avoid the next month’s tuition fee.

Drop Deadlines:
Children’s Division, Student Division, By Placement Division | December 15 is the last day to drop, transfer or enroll in classes.
First Steps Division | March 1 is the last day to drop, transfer or enroll in classes.
