Refer to the term sessions to review the term-specific refund schedule.

After selecting a term, look for your course start/end date.

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 continuing education classes, see the Refund Policy in the Continuing Education Catalog.

How are refunds determined?

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 are enrolled in a TCC Plus (Powered by First Day™) course with the cost of digital course materials included in your tuition, visit our TCC Plus page to determine how refunds are calculated.  

How will I receive my refund?

Refunds may take up to 6 weeks to process, and will be refunded based on the original payment method.

Refunds will be made to the credit/debit card used for payment if the refund is processed within 180 days of the original payment.

Refunds for cash, check or ACH/electronic check payments, debit/credit cards after 180 days of the original payment will be processed using your refund preference with BankMobile.
