Refund Policy

  • If you officially drop a class, you will be granted a refund of paid tuition and fees. A course section dropped by the specified drop date listed on the Class Schedule (, will be granted a full refund of paid tuition and fees with no academic penalty. Any course section dropped after the stated drop date will be processed as a course withdrawal (grade of “W” on the academic transcript) subject to the tuition and fees of the course.
  • Refund calculations are based upon the total tuition and fee obligations to the College and not upon the amount of partial payment made.
  • In order to drop and receive a refund, you must initiate an official class drop prior to the drop deadline. College staff members are not responsible to submit schedule adjustments on behalf of the student. Schedule adjustments are submitted to the Records and Registration office; the Grahl, Fehsenfeld and Eastern Academic Centers; the RMTC office; or on the KRIS automated registration system.
  • Cancelled classes will be granted a full refund of paid tuition and fees.
  • A refund will not be granted if you withdraw from classes or are administratively withdrawn from the College for disciplinary or attendance reasons.
  • If you are a currently enrolled student and are called for military duty, present a copy of your military orders to the Registrar’s office. You shall be dropped from all uncompleted courses without a grade and be granted a refund of all tuition and fees paid.
