Tuition Refund Policy

Students officially withdrawing from a credit or continuing education course during the published period are eligible for a refund. Students withdrawing after the normal refund period will not receive a refund. Check the academic calendar for withdrawal deadlines each semester.

In extreme circumstances, when the student is forced to withdraw after the normal refund period, the college will consider granting a partial refund of tuition and fees. To be eligible for consideration, the student must meet the criteria described in the Involuntary Withdrawal Policy and must submit a written request and any and all documentation to the Registrar's Office.
