Tuition and Fee Refund

Policy No: EM004

Policy Statement

The purpose of this policy is to establish general guidelines for a tuition refund as well as ensuring that refunds are considered for students who have extenuating circumstances in accordance with the approved standards of the college. It is the policy of the college to refund student tuition and fees if notified of a class change, or dropped classes, within an appropriate period of time. Courses dropped prior to the first day of the semester will have 100% of the tuition canceled. Courses dropped on or after the first day of the semester are subject to the refund schedules outlined in this policy, which govern the prorated cancellation of semester tuition charges in cases of program adjustment or withdrawal. Students with extenuating and documentable circumstances may submit an appeal to be considered for additional tuition refund. The refund appeals process is outlined in this policy.
