Short term classes/Late Start Classes:

Any student officially withdrawing before the first day of class will be entitled to a 100% refund.

There are no refunds for short term classes dropped after the class starts.

Students will receive refunds during the normal stipend and refund process.

When the college is responsible for a change, i.e., cancelled class, time change, etc., the college will determine if there is a credit on the student account and refund any amount due back to the student during the normal stipend and refund process.

Financial Aid Recipients who totally withdraw from classes:

The financial aid office will perform a Return to Title IV Calculation (R2T4) to determine the amount of aid required to be refunded to the federal financial aid program(s). If a grant overpayment is due from the student, the student will be notified by mail. The student may pay the grant overpayment diretly to the school during the same academic year. At the end of the academic year, any uncollected overpayments will be turned over to the Department of Education for collections.
