Adjustment of Tuition

For students reducing their credit hours or officially withdrawing from the College, all or a portion of their refundable tuition may be credited to their student account according to a tuition adjustment schedule published each semester/session in the Student Handbook. The portion (percentage) is an adjustment to the tuition the student is assessed for the semester/session, not a refund of what the student has already paid. If a credit balance remains after all tuition and fees due are deducted from any payment that have been applied, the balance will be returned to the student automatically after the official census date.

Students must complete the drop/withdrawal process before the posted deadlines to qualify for a reduction in amounts owed. Registration fees are only adjusted if the student reduces hours or withdraws through the 100% refund period. Students who wish to appeal the tuition adjustment (or lack thereof) must complete a Refund Request Form. The completed form plus any relevant support documents (such as a letter stating the reasons the student feels he or she is entitled to a tuition adjustment) must be submitted the Bursar’s Office.

Nonattendance does not constitute withdrawal. Students must withdraw from the College prior to the stated deadlines if they decide not to attend. Students who do not submit a drop request or drop course(s) online may have a financial obligation to the College regardless of attendance.
