Refund of Tuition and Fees

The college recognizes that students sometimes need to drop a course or withdraw from school after classes have begun.  Before doing so, it is strongly recommended that a student:

  1. Discuss the decision with their instructor, advisor, and/or coach.
  2. Check with the Enrollment Advisement Center to determine the effect of dropping a course or withdrawing from the college on financial aid, billing, academic progress, and/or developmental progress.
