Refund Policy

  • To qualify for a refund, you need to officially drop the course(s) prior to the end of the refund period. Refunds are not given for dropped courses after the refund date.

    Deleting or Dropping a Course

    If you are a student in good standing, you may drop the course(s) via Lynx Student Portal during the refund period. Lynx Student Portal will allow a drop until 11:59 p.m. on the deadline day.

    If you are ineligible to add/drop via WebAdvisor because of Dual Enrollment, probation or have not completed ENGL-101 and General Education Math within 24 credits, etc., you must see an adviser by 7 p.m. on the deadline day for permission to change your schedule. Please use a Registration/Schedule Change form for the following:

    • if you are unable to drop courses during the refund period using WebAdvisor
    • for dropping courses after the refund period, but before the withdrawal deadline

    You can provide the completed form in-person, by mail or by fax. Completed forms received after the refund period require a signature from an adviser or instructor.

    If you fail to attend or stop attending a course and do not formally drop the course in writing prior to the refund deadline, you continue to be financially responsible for all tuition and fees related to the course and receive final grades earned for that course. This refund policy applies to all students who have registered for courses.

    Refunds are credited against the original form of payment. However, if you have any outstanding debt to the college, your refund(s) are first automatically applied to the payment of the debt.

  • Refund Policy Deadline Dates

    The refund calculation is based on 7% of the course's instruction time, a figure that is rounded to the nearest full day. For full-term courses, the 100% refund period concludes at the end of the day one calendar week after the start of the term (7% of the instruction time for the course). For all term and mini term due dates, please see the applicable chart below:
