Year Adopted: 2001

For State supported classes, tuition and fees* will be refunded upon official withdrawal by the student according to the following schedule:

  • 100% if the College cancels the class.
  • 100% if by the close of the fifth instructional day of the quarter.
  • 50% if by the close of the 20th instructional day of the quarter.
  • 0% after the 20th instructional day of the quarter.

For all other classes, the following schedule will apply:

  • 100% if the College cancels the class.
  • 100% if the student withdraws by the business day prior to the first day of class.
  • 0% if the student registers but does not attend the class.

Refunds are not granted to students withdrawn for disciplinary reasons.

Students called for military active duty will be granted a refund of tuition and fees paid during the current quarter, subject to the rules and regulations of their respective funding sources. Presentation of official orders is required.

*Certain consumable and pass-thru fees are not refundable.


To be eligible for a refund under the College policy outlined in Chapter 3, Section 22, students must officially withdraw in person during College business hours. Withdrawals are not considered official if executed by phone, email, or fax.

Exceptions to the refund policy may be appealed by contacting Enrollment Services and completing the necessary paperwork. The Director of Enrollment Services/Registrar will adjudicate written appeals.

Financial Aid recipients are subject to the Title IV Return of Funds policy stated in the catalog.

Course Cancelations

The College reserves the right to cancel classes, reschedule classes, or change instructors based upon low enrollment or other factors. The decision to cancel a class is normally made before the starting date of the class. The college makes every effort to notify registrants at the home telephone number and/or email address on their registration forms.

When a student officially withdraws or the class is canceled and the result is a refund, the refund will be made based upon terms of the original payment method or funding source.
