drop, withdrawal, and refund deadlines

to begin the refund process, a student must drop the course(s) using self-service. for a 100 percent refund, the course must be dropped by 11:59 p.m. on the day prior to the first day of the academic semester. for a 75 percent refund, the course must be dropped by 11:59 p.m. on the day designated as the official 10 percent point of the semester. refund checks are automatically generated provided a student completes the drop process within the designated refund period. the tuition refund check is mailed to the student’s address on record with the college after the end of the 75 percent refund period, typically about three weeks after the beginning of the semester.
