Refunds

Tuition Refund Policy – Curriculum Students

A refund shall not be made except under the following circumstances:

  • A 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to first day of class(es) of the academic
    semester as noted in the college calendar. Also, a student is eligible for a 100 percent refund if the class in which the student is officially registered fails to “make” due to insufficient enrollment.
  • A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially with- draws from the class(es) prior to or on the official 10 percent point of the semester.
  • For classes beginning at times other than the first week (seven calendar days) of the semester, a 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to the first class meeting. A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the 10 percent point of the class.
  • For contact hour classes, ten calendar days from the date of the first class meeting is the determination date.

To comply with applicable federal regulations regarding refunds, federal regulations will supersede the state refund regulations stated in the rule.

Where a student, having paid the required tuition for a semester, dies during that semester (prior to or on the last day of examinations of the college the student was attending), all tuition and fees for that semester may be refunded to the estate of the deceased.

Financial Aid Title IV Refund

If students withdraw or reduce their course load during the drop/add period of the semester, they may be required to repay some or all of their student financial aid. If students withdraw from college or cease attending classes prior to the 60% point of the semester, they will be responsible for the repayment of the Federal Pell Grant and any other Title IV grants received. Failure to repay student financial aid can result in a “tagged record”. Having a “tagged record” prevents students from receiving financial aid in future semesters.

Student Activity Fee Refund Policy-Curriculum Students

A 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to the first day of class(es) of the academic semester as noted in the college calendar. Also, a student is eligible for 100 percent refund if the class in which the student is officially registered fails to “make” due to insufficient enrollment.

Note: Tuition refunds and student activity refunds will not be considered for amounts of ($5) or less, except when a course or curriculum fails to materialize; then all the students’ tuition shall be refunded.
