If you are dropping and/or withdrawing during a regular 16-week semester, you are eligible for a refund of tuition according to the following schedule:
|Prior to the first calendar class day||100%|
|During the first 15 calendar class days||70%|
|During the 16th through the 20th calendar class days||25%|
|After the 20th calendar class day||None|
You must officially drop and/or withdraw to initiate any potential refund unless you are de-registered (DREG) for lack of payment or dropped for academic reasons.
For non-credit classes, see the Community & Industry Education (CIE) refund policy.
What are the term refund dates?
Please refer to the TCCD Master Calendar (WebAdvisor) for term refund dates. For non-regular, semester–length courses, you should contact Business Services Office for refund schedules.
How do you determine refunds?
Based upon the refund schedule, credit balances are automatically shown on your account when you withdraw or cancel a course.
They are calculated based on your invoice amount, not the payments you've made, and may first be applied to any outstanding balances you have with the College. This includes but is not limited to parking fines, library fines and returned items.
If you've received a Dual Credit Grant reimbursement, you may be required to repay funds received.
How will I receive my refund?
Refunds take up to six weeks to process, and will be made to the credit card used for payment, provided the refund is processed within 90 days of payment. Refunds for credit cards after 90 days of original payment, along with refunds for cash and check payments, or payments made towards an enrolled payment plan, will be processed using your refund selection kit refund preference.
Can I appeal my refund?
Your refund may be appealed by the end of the semester, following the semester you are requesting a refund for.
|Fall||End of Spring|
|Summer||End of Fall|
|Spring||End of Summer|
The complete refund policy can be found on pages 39 and 40 of the Course Catalog.
For the refund policy on noncredit courses, please contact your Community & Industry Education Services Office.
Tuition rates and refund of tuition are subject to change by legislative and/or TCC Board of Trustees action without notice. The College reserves the right to cancel any course section due to an inadequate number of enrolled students.
Refund Selection Kit
If you're an eligible financial aid student and/or registered student between the ages of 16 to 54, you'll be mailed a refund selection kit with instructions on choosing your preferred refund method for future financial aid or course refunds. The refund selection kit is mailed to the address on file with Admissions and Records.
For questions or additional information, contact your campus's Business Services Office.
