Withdrawal & Refund Policy

Withdrawing from credit classes

The refund period for fall, winter and spring quarter is the first 15 calendar days of the quarter. It is the student's responsibility to withdraw from the college or from individual courses.

Students must withdraw online or submit a withdrawal/change of schedule form to guarantee the accuracy of their permanent records and to begin refund procedures when applicable. The student may receive a refund under the following conditions:

  • 100 percent refund of tuition and fees - When courses or programs are canceled by the college.
  • 100 percent refund of tuition and fees - Through the fifth instructional day of the quarter when a student officially withdraws from class.
  • 40 percent refund of tuition only (no fees will be refunded after the 100% refund period ends) - When official withdrawal occurs after the fifth instructional day of the quarter through the end of the refund period (see next bullet).
  • No refunds - After the 15th calendar day of the quarter. The 15th calendar day is the end of the refund period.
  • Short term classes - 100 percent refund of tuition and fees - when official withdrawal occurs prior to or on the first day of class only. Short-term classes are indicated by dates published with the class listing.
  • Refunds of less than ten dollars ($10.00) will not be made.
  • Appeals to the refund policy must be submitted to the Enrollment Services Office in written form with a Policy Exception Request, including supporting documentation. Refund appeals must be received by the Enrollment Services Office within one year of the quarter in question.
  • A separate refund policy applies to students receiving financial aid. Tuition refunds must be returned to the financial aid account and not to the student.

For summer quarter refer to the summer quarterly class schedule for refund dates and policy.
