Federal Title IV Financial Aid Refunds

There is a 100 percent refund of all tuition and fees up to the last day to add for each term. There are no refunds after the last day to add. All refunds for tuition, fees and deposits that may be due to a student will be first applied to any encumbrances owed to the college. Consult the appropriate semester class schedule for specific dates and percentage of refund.

The refund schedule begins with the first day of classes and applies to Monday through Friday. Sufficient time must be allowed for final clearance of fee payment checks before refunds will be made.

Students are eligible for a 50 percent refund of room fees if leaving residence within 21 days of the first day of classes for each semester or 21 days of the start date of a specific program in which they are enrolled. Room fees will not be reimbursed after the 21st day as specified above.

Students living in the residence halls (excluding family housing) are required to participate in the food service plan as provided by the college. Students withdrawing from the college may be eligible for a meal plan refund, prorated on a weekly basis, up to four weeks after the start of the 17-week term. Students who are enrolled in only a first or second eight-week term will be charged a prorated meal plan rate of 50 percent of a full 17-week meal plan. Departing eight-week-only students are eligible for refunds, prorated on a weekly basis, up to two weeks after the eight-week term begins. Any refund exceptions to this policy must be made in writing to the Dean of Student Services and must contain the rationale for the request along with any documentation requested by the Dean. Requests for exceptions to this policy will not be accepted by the Dean after 15 working days from the departure of the student.

If a class or classes are canceled by the college, you will receive a full refund for all tuition and fees for cancelations. Refunds will be issued for canceled classes within three weeks after the end of registration. In the case of such cancelations, the student may opt to enroll in alternative classes and apply the tuition and fees from the canceled class(es) to the newly enrolled class(es).
