Refund Information


Refunds are not processed automatically and must be requested by the student. If classes have been dropped online or in person, the refund request form is still required to be submitted. Students may choose to leave a credit on the student account to cover future enrollment charges.

Refund Policy

​Students are eligible for a full refund of most fees, provided they have officially dropped or withdrawn from classes prior to the refund deadline or their classes have been canceled by the college. The refund deadline, and all other pertinent dates for each respective class, can be viewed within the class details found in the online Class Schedule.  Classes can be dropped through MySite or in person at the Office of Admissions and Records. 

There is no refund for classes added after the refund deadline date. Also, refunds are not available for any instructor drop that is initiated after the refund deadline.

If eligible for a refund, a Check Refund will only be authorized if the original payment was made by cash or a check, or if the original payment is older than a year.  To be eligible for a Credit Card Refund, the original payment must have been made by a credit card within the last year.

All refund requests must be submitted online by using the Refund Request Form. 

Please view the "Refund Process" page for more information on how to obtain the refund.  Please do not email your credit card information, as email is not a secure communication method. 

Refund Process

All refund requests must be submitted online by using the Refund Request Form. 

Once the request is submitted online, the submitter will receive an initial email confirming the submission at the email address provided on the refund request form. 

After the Bursar's Office has reviewed the request and the respective student account, a second email will be sent providing an authorization for the refund.  The second email will contain the amount of refund next to the type of refund (Check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover). 

If the authorized type of refund is a check, please verify that the mailing address on the student's MySite student profile is up to date.  Otherwise, the refund will not be successfully delivered.

If the authorized type of refund is a credit card, the student must call or come in-person to the Bursar's Office in order to complete the refund transaction. 

The student MUST be the one to call or come in-person to the Bursar's Office with the 16 digit credit card number and expiration date to complete the refund.  Even if a third party has made the payment on behalf of the student, the student must still be the one who completes and claims the refund. Also, in the event that the refund type is a check, the check refund will be made payable in the student name.
