If you find it necessary to withdraw from the college you may be eligible for a refund of part of your tuition. (We do not give refunds of fees, nor do we give refunds for courses that you are auditing.) In order to qualify for a refund, you must notify the Registrar’s Office of your desire to withdraw. As part of the withdrawal procedure you must settle all accounts. If you do not follow the withdrawal procedure you will receive a grade of W/F for all courses and will forfeit your eligibility for any tuition refund. Students who are dismissed or suspended from the college are not eligible for any refund.
