Refund of Tuition and Fees

To obtain a refund for tuition and fees, students must officially drop their class(es) in any one of our locations listed below, within the periods shown. Refunds are not allowed after the published dates. In the event of a course cancellation or a class schedule revision made by the College, a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees will be processed or credited to your remaining term balance. The Business Office processes refunds in approximately two weeks from date of adjustment.

  • 100% refund for tuition and fees if class(es) are dropped and processed before - but not on - the first day of the semester, session, or class. This includes semester, summer, 4 to 8 week, late starting, and mini-courses.
  • 90% refund for tuition and fees if class(es) are dropped within the first 7 calendar days of the term for full semester courses, summer courses, and late starting courses only.
  • 50% refund for tuition and fees if class(es) are dropped after the first seven calendar days but before/on the 14th calendar day for full semester courses.
    • No refund will be issued at this point for 8 week or summer courses.
  • 100% refund for mini-courses if students drop prior to the start of the first class period. No refund will be issued after the class begins.

Refunds are calculated based on the day the student officially drops a class, not when the student stops attending class.

If the student has received federal Title IV student financial aid during the term (Federal PELL, ACG or SEOG grants, Federal Stafford Loan, or a PLUS Loan), the student may be entitled to a pro rata or federal refund. Students who do not receive federal Title IV aid are not entitled to these refunds. Further information can be found on our Business Office' Refund Information webpage.
