Course Cancelations

The fees charged for self-support classes cover all costs of offering the class. The college cancels a class only when there are too few participants enrolled to cover the cost of the class. The college reserves the right to cancel classes, reschedule classes or change instructors. The decision to cancel a class is made before the starting date of the class. The college makes every effort to notify registrants. Students will list home telephone number and email address on their registration forms. If the class is canceled students will receive a refund.

  1. Programs canceled by the College will be refunded at 100 percent of the fees paid but unused as of the cancelation date.
  2. Refunds will not be granted for students withdrawn for disciplinary reasons.
  3. Upon official withdrawal, refunds will be made by mail to the student, his or her respective funding agencies, or, at the discretion of the college, his or her legal guardian, if the student is under 18 years of age.
  4. Students called for military active duty will be granted a refund of tuition and laboratory/supply/technology fees paid for the current payment period, subject to the rules and regulations of their respective funding sources. Presentation of written confirmation is required.
