Refund Schedule

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

 

Refunds will be determined on the basis of the following schedule:

Important Note for Financial Aid Recipients

Students who do not attend 60 percent of the semester and who have received Federal Financial Aid (Pell Grant, SEOG, Direct Loans) to pay tuition, fees, or other intuitional costs, will be responsible to repay part of the monies received. If you fail to repay the funds, you will not be eligible to receive federal aid at any college or university. The College follows the federal requirements for repayment of Title IV funds.
