REFUND OF TUITION AND FEES

Written Notification

Students who decide to drop a course are required to officially withdraw by completing a Change of Schedule form in the Registrar's Office. Students who decide to drop all courses are required to officially withdraw from the college by completing the Total Withdrawal From School form in the Registrar's Office. In either case, it is the student's responsibility to obtain required signatures, complete the forms, and return the forms to the Registrar's Office.

100% Refund Period

Students who officially withdraw from a course or courses during the first three weeks of the regular 16-week semester (Fall/Spring) are entitled to a full refund (100%) of tuition and fees paid. No refund on tuition and fees is given after the published date and the student is obligated for the full amount of tuition and fees incurred.

For courses less than a regular semester length (including Summer semester courses) the 100% refund period is during the first 10% of the scheduled course duration. No refund on tuition and fees is given after the published date, and the student is obligated for the full amount of tuition and fees incurred.

Specific dates will be published each semester with the course schedule; it is the student's responsibility to comply with timelines associated with the refund policy.

Refunds for Courses That Do Not Materialize

Students enrolled in courses that do not materialize will receive a full refund of all tuition and fees paid. To facilitate refunds on such classes, students should contact the Registrar’s Office or the Business Office.
