About Tuition Refunds

In order to offer a complete program of studies it is necessary for the College to contract and incur certain costs. Even if a student withdraws, college service, student activity and application fees are non-refundable.

  • Refund for charge card transactions are processed in the same manner as cash or check transactions.
  • Refunds vary by semester/session.

Fall + Spring Semesters

For notice of withdrawal received prior to the first day of the term a refund of 100 percent of tuition (including lab and studio fees) will be granted.  Registration fees are non-refundable.

For notice of withdrawal received on the first day of the term and through the fourteenth calendar day of the full semester a refund of 50 percent of tuition (including lab and studio fees) will be granted.  Registration fees are non-refundable. For shorter parts of term the refund is pro-rated according to the number of weeks of the term.

For a reduction in load which occurs on the first day of the full semester and through the fourteenth calendar day of that semester 50 percent of the difference of the tuition applicable to the original and revised course schedule will be refunded.  The difference in the amount of registration fees is not refunded.  For shorter parts of term the refund is pro-rated according to the number of weeks of the term.

No refund of tuition or fees will be granted for either full or part-time students beyond the 14th calendar day after the first day of the semester or according to the pro-rated term.

Winter + Summer Sessions

For Notice of Withdrawal received prior to the first day of summer or winter session, a refund of 100% of tuition will be granted.

No refund will be granted as of the first day of the session for which you have registered.

Refund Appeal Policy

No appeals will be considered except for the following reasons:

  • Student with severe illness documented with a doctor’s written verification.
  • Documented military orders.
  • Erroneous advisement by the College with documentation.

Please submit your written appeal statement with documentation to the Record’s Office, East Campus, Room E102.

Course Cancellation Policy

For any course that is cancelled by the College, the tuition and fees for that course can be refunded.  A request in writing must be received by the Records Office in order to process the refund.

Student’s Responsibility

To insure that you receive your refund check, you must have your contact information updated. You can change your address online through myCommNet, or you can go to the Record’s Office in person. If your address is incorrect in our system, your refund check will not be received in a timely manner.

Payment Plan Refunds

If you have a payment plan and you reduced the number of enrolled credits or withdrew from your courses, you may still owe a balance. You must contact the Business Office to determine the effect of your changes on your payment plan.

No adjustments will be made to the payment plan schedule after the end of the add/drop period. You are liable for all charges if you withdraw from classes after the 14th calendar day.

Payment plan and late fees are not refundable at any time.
