Withdrawals

Financial aid students consult with Financial Aid first prior to withdrawing.

Refunds result from actions initiated by students: Official, complete withdrawal from all classes will result in the refund calculation as detailed below. Tuition refunds may also result from the cancellation of classes by college officials. (For dropping a class, see section on Refunds)

Refunds for withdrawal are processed by executing an "Official Withdrawal from School" form.

WITHDRAWAL FROM SCHOOL PRIOR TO THE COMPLETION OF THE DROP/ADD PERIOD ENTITLES A STUDENT TO A 100% REFUND.

The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester. The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on an approved leave of absence. The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount equals 60%. View the refund percentage table. PDF

Students that withdraw from the institution when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60%, are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges.

The refund of all tuition, and other mandatory fees shall be made in the event of the death of a student during the academic session.

*** Please remember, only a complete official withdrawal from ALL classes will generate a refund after the add/drop period.
