How our refunds work - Refund Policy

If the college cancels a class or you drop a class by the refund deadline (for courses that meet for the entire term this is generally the Friday of the second week of the term): the full cost of the class will be credited to your student account and refunded in the order listed below.

Less than full-term classes have a shorter refund period. Review the specific course drop deadlines on-line in the searchable class schedule.

You will not receive a refund or credit toward another class for any classes dropped after the end of the refund period.

Refund credits from dropped courses will first apply to any outstanding amounts due on your student account. Refunds are processed beginning the third week of each term and are credited back to the original source of payment as follows:

  • For classes paid by credit card - refunds are credited back to the credit card
  • For classes paid by check or through the automated payment plan (InstaFacts) - refunds are issued as a check or direct deposit
  • For classes paid by third party or agency payments - refunds are issued to the original payor
  • For classes paid by financial aid resources - credits will be reviewed by the Financial Aid department and may be applied to offset financial aid resources. Any remaining refund authorized by Financial Aid will be issued as a refund check or direct deposit.

Refunds are not issued for amounts under $5.

Changes in the number of hours for which you are registered may affect your financial aid, agency or veteran's benefits.
