Curriculum and Continuing Education Refund Policy
The College follows the refund policies established by the North Carolina Community College System. The following are specific guidelines which have been established in accordance with these policies. Allow a minimum of two weeks for processing of refund requests. Refunds for less than $5.00 will not be made.
A full (100%) tuition refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to the start date of the class. Example – If the start date of class as indicated on the student’s schedule is September 1, the student must withdraw from that class on or before August 31 to receive a full (100%) tuition refund.
A 75% tuition refund shall be made if the student withdraws on or before the census date of the class. The census date for a class is the 10% point of the class.
No tuition refund shall be made if the student withdraws from a class after the census date of the class. The census date for a class is the 10% point of the class.
Continuing Education courses follow the same refund policy with the exception of non-regularly schedules courses.
After a non-regularly scheduled CE course section begins, the college shall provide a 75 percent refund upon the request of the student if the student withdraws or is withdrawn by the college from the course section prior to or on the 10th calendar day after the start of the course section.
The student fees, accident insurance premium, and some program specific fees (i.e., malpractice insurance fees, processing fees, etc.) are not refundable unless the student officially withdraws prior to the start date of his or her classes, a student’s class is canceled, or the college determines an institutional error has occurred.
