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:

Deadline Refund
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 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.

If you are enrolled in an TCC Plus (Inclusive Access) 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 take up to six weeks to process, and will be refunded to the credit/debit card used for payment. Refunds for cash, check or ACH/electronic 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.

Semester Appealing Deadline
Fall End of Spring
Summer End of Fall
Spring End of Summer

If you feel you've met the Student Refund Appeal Guidelines, you may complete and submit the Tuition Refund Appeal Request Form.

Additional Information

See the complete refund policy in the Catalog.

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 between the ages of 16 to 54 and are either eligible for financial aid or registered for classes, you will automatically be mailed a refund selection kit from BankMobile Disbursements. The refund selection kit is mailed to the address on file with Admissions and Records.
