Non-Credit Classes

Refund policy will be based upon the start date of the class.  A refund of 100% of tuition and fees for courses dropped prior to the course start date.  On the day the course begins and thereafter no refund will be issued.

Please note the following when applying for a refund:

Full-time students are eligible for tuition refunds only when their semester course load drops below 12 credits. The refund will be calculated by determining the difference between the previous full-time enrollment threshold of 12 credits and the new part-time enrollment and then applying the appropriate refund percentage to the difference in dropped credits.

  • Refund payments are not immediate. Allow approximately six weeks for processing and mailing during the fall/spring semesters and four weeks during the summer/winter sessions.
  • Credit courses eight weeks or less in length are subject to a refund schedule appropriate to the length of the course.
  • A course canceled by the college will be refunded all tuition and fees relative to the cancelled course.
