REFUND SCHEDULE

Refunds are issued to the student approximately two weeks after the account change has occurred.  Refunds are issued via check or credit card depending on original payment and mailed to the address on file unless the students has signed up for direct deposit to receive refunds.  Direct deposit provides an electronic refund to the bank account of the students choice.  It is important to keep student address and bank account information up to date to avoid any delays. 

Tuition refunds will be issued to eligible students based upon the effective date of the withdrawal or when payments exceed charges. The date that a written request for withdrawal is received by the Admissions and Records Office determines the official withdrawal date.  Full refund of tuition and fees will be made if the College cancels a course.

 

Refunds will be determined based on the length of the course and the withdrawal date.  Students who withdrawal after the refund date will not receive a refund.
