Refund Policy

The refund calculation is based on seven percent of the course's instruction time, a figure that is rounded to the nearest full day. For full-term courses, the 100% refund period concludes at the end of the day one calendar week after the start of the term (seven percent of the instruction time for the course).

The following dates are for courses that start and end on the full-term dates.

Deleting or Dropping a Course

To qualify for a refund, you need to officially drop a course(s) prior to the end of the refund period. Refunds are not given for dropped courses after the refund date. If you are a student in good standing you may drop the course(s) via WebAdvisor during the refund period. WebAdvisor will allow a drop until 11:59 pm on the deadline day.

A student who is ineligible to add/drop via WebAdvisor (Dual Enrollment, probation, has not completed ENGL-101 and General Education Math within 24 credits, etc.) must see an advisor by 7 pm on the deadline day for permission to change his/her schedule. Here is the required form (Schedule Change/Drop Add form) for the following situations:

  • unable to drop courses during the refund period using WebAdvisor
  • drop classes after the refund period, but before the withdrawal deadline

You can provide the completed form in-person, by mail, or by fax. Completed forms received after the refund period require an adviser or instructor signature.

If you fail to attend or stop attending a course, and do not formally drop the course in writing prior to the refund deadline, you continue to be financially responsible for all tuition and fees related to the course and receive final grades earned for that course. This refund policy applies to all students who have registered for courses.

Refunds are credited against the original form of payment. However, if you have any outstanding debt to the college, your refunds are first automatically applied to the payment of the debt.
