Refund Eligibility

Dropping & Canceling a Course

You can be eligible for a refund if you drop or cancel a course prior to the refund deadline dates. To avoid financial obligation to the College, you must notify the College in writing or online using the Student Center. The envelopes must be postmarked or the data entered into the Student Center by the published refund dates. Telephone requests are not accepted. If you use Student Center to drop or withdraw from a class, please keep a printout of the successful transaction for your records.
