Refunds for tuition and fees
Some tuition, fees and other costs can be refunded under certain circumstances and/or within specific time frames. The Student Accounts and Cashier Office can answer questions about specific situations.
Refunds for Credit Courses
Tuition refunds are issued based upon the official date of withdrawal from credit courses. 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. Refund 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 course 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.
Refunds Due to Extenuating Circumstances
Refunds may be granted after published refund dates for extenuating circumstances that prevented course attendance. Submit supporting documentation along with a Student Account Appeal Form, which can be found in the Student Forms box on mywcc.
