Student Initiated Withdrawals & Refunds
It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw from classes.
Failure to withdraw may result in mandatory payment of tuition and book charges, forfeiture of financial aid eligibility, and/or a failing grade. Key dates may be found in the student portal (my.ccc.edu). Financial Aid will be adjusted as appropriate for students who withdraw from classes.
1. Credit or Skills Classes
a. Refund Period
Refunds for Student Initiated Withdrawals (see academic and student policy manual page 24) may be available, subject to the Refund Amount paragraph below, only if processed and recorded in the student information system during the first seven (7) calendar days from the published start date fora regular 16-week class (or equitable time period for any other length of class). No refund will be allowed if a student withdraws after the refund deadline. The Tuition Refund Date may be found in the student portal (my.ccc.edu). No refund is allowed for non-refundable charges (see academic and student policy manual page 48).
b. Class Cancellation
If the college cancels a class, all applicable charges, subject to the Refund Amount paragraph below, will be fully refunded and students will be notified of the cancellation by a message sent to their CCC email account.
c. Refund Amount
Students may qualify for a tuition refund ONLY if BOTH of the following criteria are satisfied:
i. The class withdrawal must be student-initiated and recorded in the student information system by the specific deadlines noted in the Refund Period paragraph, above, or the class must have been cancelled by the college, AND
ii. The class withdrawal or cancellation moves the student’s enrolled hours to a lower Credit Hour Tier (see academic and student policy manual page 48) or results in the withdrawal and/or cancellation of all classes.
2. Refunds–Professional & Personal Development (Continuing Education)
Refunds for Student Initiated Withdrawals (WTH) are available at one hundred percent (100%) of tuition and charges if processed and recorded in the student information system before the published start date of class (less applicable course withdrawal charges and non-refundable charges). No refunds are issued once classes have begun.
If the college cancels a class, all applicable charges for that class will be fully refunded and students will be notified of the cancellation by a message sent to their CCC email account.
Refunds Issued to Students
Students who receive a refund due to financial aid (e.g., Pell Grant) or a third-party payment on their account and are no longer entitled to that refund due to change in eligibility are required to repay the amount of the refund in full. Any amount that a student receives in the form of a refund related to state, federal or third party funding cannot be waived.
No-Show Withdrawals (NSW) & Refunds
No refunds (or adjustments) of tuition and/or charges will be issued for classes with no-show withdrawals (NSW). Students will be held accountable for the payment of tuition and charges for NSW courses. Financial aid may not be used to cover the cost of NSW classes (see academic and student policy manual page 23)
