All tuition is payable on or before the announced due dates.
The college may assess additional fees associated with specific majors, laboratories, individual lessons or some distance-based course formats. Students are required to pay for specialized testing.
Note: If you register on the Web, you may pay on the Web, by mail or in person.
The registration and tuition refund appeal process is available to students who feel they warrant an exception to the college’s withdrawal/refund policies. Exceptions to the college’s established policies are not made lightly and will generally be considered only for extenuating circumstances.
Examples of extenuating circumstances include: Medical issues, death of a family member or physician's orders restricting school attendance. The committee decides each case on its own merit.
To file an appeal: Complete the appeal form and include a written statement explaining in detail the circumstance leading to the appeal and include supporting documentation (doctor's orders, death certificates, etc.). Submit the entire appeal packet to the Enrollment Services Department (ADM 1113).
The committee meets the third Wednesday of each month. Materials are confidential and only shared with committee members. Completed appeal packets received by noon on the Thursday prior to the meeting will be included in the following week’s meeting. Appeals submitted after this time will be reviewed at the following meeting.
The submission of an appeal does not guarantee approval. Students are notified in writing of the committee’s decision within seven working days of the appeal meeting.
If your appeal is denied, you may appeal the decision in person at the next appeals meeting by calling 636-922-8235.
In order to receive the in-district tuition rate, you must submit any changes in residency that affect tuition charges before the first day of class of the semester in which the change will take place. Proof of residency must accompany a request for change from out-of-district to in-district residency.
If a student withdraws from a course or from the college, the student may receive a tuition refund for that session or semester provided an “Add/Drop" form is completed and filed with Enrollment Services within a specified time, or the student withdraws online (via SCC Connection).
The date of the Add/Drop form (or the date the online drop is completed) is used to determine the percentage of eligible refund. Refunds are calculated based on the calendar days from the start date of the term. It is important to drop your course(s) immediately, since the date that the Add/Drop form is processed will determine the rate of the refund.
A full refund is made if a class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.
