Refund of tuition for the fall and spring semesters upon reductions in credit hours or official withdrawal from the College is made according to the schedule listed in the Academic Calendar. Refund deadlines vary for the summer session and for special short-term credit courses according to the length of those courses. The refund schedule for special sessions will be published in the Academic Calendar.
Refunds resulting from the reduction in credit hours during the published refund period will be processed, provided the student completes the drop/withdrawal process prior to the posted deadline. Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal.
Students must request their refunds in the Bursar’s office. Students who wish to appeal the refund they receive (or lack thereof) must complete a Tuition Appeal Form in the Student Affairs Office. A letter stating the reasons the student feels he or she is entitled to a refund should be attached to the Tuition Appeal Form. Supporting documentation may also be attached. These appeals are submitted to the Student Financial Assistance Committee. The student will be notified in writing of the decision of the Committee. A student may make a final appeal to the Chancellor of the College.
No refunds are made when a student is administratively dropped.
