Full Term Courses
A student will receive a full refund of the enrollment fee up to the end of the second week of full-term classes. Thereafter, no refund is authorized, except when college action to cancel or reschedule a class necessitates the drop. After the second week of classes, a student may drop a course and apply the fee previously paid towards meeting the cost of the fee of a course to be added. Therefore, the college advises students to drop and add courses at the same time. Please note that after the second week of classes there will be absolutely no refunds even when an added course has fewer units than a course that was dropped. For example, a student who enrolls in 3 units, then after the second week drops those 3 units and adds another 3 units, will not be charged an additional fee. A student who enrolls in 3 units, then after the second week drops the 3 units and adds 2 units, will not be charged for the 2 units and will not receive a refund for the difference between 3 and 2 units. (SEE SCHEDULE OF CLASSES FOR DATES ON REFUNDS)
Short Term Courses
A student will receive a full refund up to the end of a period of time equal to 10% of the total class time. There will be no refunds after that time, unless a student must drop a class because it was canceled or rescheduled by the college administration.
Refunds of non-resident tuition for full-term or short-term courses are governed by the same policies as indicated above. Once the class is dropped prior to the deadline date, the non-resident student must request a refund in writing (a form is provided in the Fiscal Office). All refunds for non-resident tuition will be by check and mailed to the student.
Audited classes are not taken for college credit and cannot be dropped. No refund is given for audit courses no longer attended.
