The cost of a Semlink+ course varies depending on which campus you are affiliated with. A Semlink+ course will be subject to the same tuition costs as an on-campus course at your home campus, plus a technology fee. You can find the most current information about tuition here:
Refunds for dropping or withdrawing from Semlink+ courses will be granted based on the Semlink+ semester schedule:
- Friday of week 1: The last day to drop your course and receive a 100% tuition refund
- Friday of week 2: The last day to withdraw from your course and receive an 80% tuition refund
- Friday of week 3: The last day to withdraw from your course and receive a 50% refund
- Monday following week 14: The last day to withdraw, no refund
Using Summer 2015 as an example:

- May 29: Deadline for 80% refund
- June 5: Deadline for 50% refund

If you are an on-campus student, meaning that you have taken classes on one of Gordon-Conwell's four campuses, any financial aid you have will also apply to your Semlink+ courses. Please contact the Financial Aid office (email@example.com) if you have any questions about how particular scholarship stipulations might work with Semlink+ courses.
Gordon-Conwell does not offer institutional grants or scholarship aid for Semlink+ students who have not yet taken courses on campus. However, students taking at least two off-campus Semlink+ courses registered within the same semester are eligible to apply for Financial Aid in the form of a Federal Stafford loan for an amount up to the cost of the tuition only. (This does not apply to International Students.) Only students who are seeking a degree through Gordon-Conwell are eligible for applying for Federal Stafford loans. Visiting and Special Students are not able to apply for Federal Stafford loans through GCTS. For the two-step instructions on applying for Financial Aid, please visit our Apply for Financial Aid page.
