Refunds for dropped classes.

Sometimes your classes don't work out. When that happens, dropping may be your best option. Provided that you drop early enough, you'll receive money back for your trouble. 

Refund Policy

To receive a refund, students must drop from the course(s) on or before the refund date indicated below. Refund deadlines are dictated by the term of each specific course (e.g., main term, accelerated #1, etc.).
To drop a course, students may meet with an advisor in SCC Main (1-SCM) or drop online through Student Planning. If the refund deadline occurs over the weekend or on a holiday, students must drop the course online via Student Planning on or before the deadline. Student Planning may be accessed through the MySCC Portal.

You may be granted an exception to the refund and/or withdraw policy by completing a registration appeal. 

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.

How to file a registration appeal:

  • Go to MySCC Portal > Quick Links > eForms > search forms for Registration Appeal. 
  • Include a written statement explaining in detail the extenuating circumstance leading to the appeal.
  • Include supporting documentation (doctor's orders, death certificates, etc.).
  • Materials are confidential and only shared with committee members.
  • Registration appeals are due by noon on the second Wednesday of each month. 
  • The committee meets the third Wednesday of each month. The Committee’s decision is final.
  • Students are notified via SCC email of the committee's decision within one week of the appeal meeting.
  • If your appeal is denied, you may appeal the decision by emailing Appeals must be made by the following month’s submission deadline (noon on the second Wednesday of the following month). 

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