Tuition Refunds

Refunds for Credit Courses
Tuition refunds are issued based upon the official date of withdrawal. Withdrawals made online through mywcc are effective when the transaction is complete. Withdrawals submitted in writing are effective according to the postmark date of the letter or the fax date and time. Full refund of tuition and fees is granted if the college cancels a course.

The academic calendar for each semester lists the last day for refunds for 16-week courses. Refunds dates for other credit courses are listed in each semester's credit schedule and in the list below. The college reserves the right to make the final decision on all refunds.

Refunds for Noncredit Courses (Community Education and Workforce Development)
Full refund of tuitions and fees is granted if the college cancels a course. Course fees will be refunded if a student withdraws at least four calendar days prior to the course start date. Course fee refunds for all online courses and Community Education activities, such as Trips and Tours, may have a different policy. See the course/activity descriptions in the noncredit schedule for details.

Senior Citizen Refunds
See our Special Tuition Policies page for information on credit course refunds for senior citizens. 

Refunds Due to Illness
Refunds may be granted after published refund dates only for medical reasons. Submit supporting documentation along with a Tuition Appeal Form, which can be found in the Student Forms box on mywcc.
