Method of Calculating Class Days

For purposes of the refund policy, a class day is defined as a day during which college classes are conducted (Monday through Friday, excluding holidays). The count begins with the first day classes are held in the term and includes each consecutive day thereafter. The count is not just of days a particular class meets.
