Enrollment/Tuition Fee Refund Policy

Students are responsible for dropping the classes they no longer wish to attend. To be eligible for a refund of enrollment fees, a dropped class must have been dropped on or prior to the refund deadline for that particular class. Full-term classes will always have a fixed refund deadline published in the Schedule of Classes each semester. The refund deadline for any non-standard, part-of-term class is calculated at 10% of the class meeting days scheduled between the start and end dates for that particular class. For example, if a class is scheduled to meet twice a week for a total of 30 class meetings, the refund deadline would be the 3rd class meeting (10% of the 30 class meeting days). Once the drop has been processed, the student’s account will be automatically adjusted and a refund issued if necessary.
