Refund Policy

This page contains information regarding tuition and refund policies for dropped or withdrawn classes. 

For information on aid disbursements/refunds, see Disbursement and Refunds


Refund Policy/Fees

Some courses require a non-refundable deposit at the time of registration. These are identified in the course schedule.

Students who attend Orientation and do not enroll for the term are not entitled to a refund of the orientation fee.

 

Tuition

Students may be eligible to receive a tuition refund only when a decrease in credit hours changes the students’ number of enrolled credits. The effective date is when a written request (Drop/Add form or Leave of Absence/Withdrawal form) is received in the Office of the Registrar. All refunds are based on the date of the written request to drop credits, calculated as per the schedule below. There will be no refund for “withdrawn” credits/courses. (See also, Withdrawal from College for more information). See Calendar for specific drop/add dates per session.
