NOTE: Refunds are determined by specific dates within each semester and are prorated for courses less than 16 weeks in length.

A few things to remember:

  • You may receive a refund for withdrawing from the course if the withdrawal is during the refund period.
  • By officially withdrawing from a course before the end of the 10th week of classes, you will receive a "W" on your transcript.
  • Do not stop attending a course without officially withdrawing or you will receive an 'F' grade in the course.
  • The add/drop form must be submitted to the Enrollment Services Department by the stated withdrawal dates for a given term. Withdrawal dates can be found on the Academic Calendar and at the Enrollment Services Department.
  • Students may drop a course with a 'W' through the end of the 10th class week during a regular term; this varies during abbreviated and short-term class sessions.

Missed the date to withdraw?

You may still qualify for a refund, but you'll have to demonstrate your case in the college's withdrawal/refund appeal process.

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
  • Physician's orders restricting school attendance

The committee decides each case on its own merit.

  • To file an appeal:
  • Go to eForms, find the appeal form, fill it out and submit it.. 
  • Include a written statement explaining in detail the circumstance leading to the appeal.
  • Include supporting documentation (doctor's orders, death certificates, etc.).
  • 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 second Wednesday of the month will be included in the following week's meeting. Packets submitted after this time will be reviewed at the next month's meeting.
  • The submission of an appeal does not guarantee approval. The Committee’s decision is final.
  • Students are notified in writing of the committee's decision within five 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 636-922-8601.

If your class has been canceled:

A full refund of tuition and fees is made if a scheduled class has been canceled.
