No reduction of charges will be made after the add/drop period for the session except as stipulated for recipients of Title IV aid.
Students will be furnished the normal amount of consumable materials and supplies required in a laboratory course without charge other than the general fee. Additional charge will be made, on an individual basis, for breakage of laboratory equipment because of student negligence; for use of consumable materials and supplies in excess of the normal requirements of the course; for rental of band or orchestra instruments for individual use; and for use of laboratory equipment by students not enrolled in courses requiring use of such equipment.
