Tuition and Course Fee Refund Policy

It shall be the College policy to refund tuition and course fees according to the following, except where superseded by law, to a student who properly withdraws from a class.

REFUND

A student who properly withdraws from a class before midnight EST of the 7th calendar day from the start of the class shall be entitled to a 100% tuition and course fee refund. Refunds do not include registration or student service fees. The first scheduled day of class is the first calendar day for purposes of this policy. For example, if a class starts on Monday, the following Sunday would be the 7th calendar day. A student who withdraws from a class after the close of the 7th calendar day shall receive no refund. For classes that meet for less than two (2) weeks, a 100% refund is permitted only if the student withdraws by midnight EST of the first day of class.

In order to properly withdraw from a class, the student is responsible for initiating the class withdrawal on WebAdvisor or in person at the Enrollment Office. Non-payment or non-attendance does not constitute proper withdrawals and students will be held financially responsible.


CLASSES CANCELED BY COLLEGE ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION

In the event a class is canceled as a result of College administrative action, students in such class will receive 100% tuition and course fee refund. If the administratively canceled class is the only class taken by the student, the registration and student service fee will also be refunded.

SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES

Students who must withdraw from a class after the 7th calendar day as a result of military deployment shall receive a 100 percent refund of tuition, course fees and registration fee or equivalent credit voucher upon presentation of documentation satisfactory to the College.

Students who must withdraw from a class after the 7th calendar day due to hospitalization; injury; prolonged illness; mandatory shift change at student's place of full-time employment (does not include mandatory overtime); and mandatory move of employment which necessitates a change of residency (does not include new employer), may receive a 100% refund of tuition, course fees and registration fee in the form of a credit voucher upon presentation of documentation satisfactory to the College. However, if the student is receiving financial aid, a refund may not be issued due to Federal regulatory requirements.

Requests for a refund due to special circumstances must be submitted in writing to the Director of Enrollment Services/Registrar no later than the last day of the semester of the class involved.
