The annual flat tuition rate is based on taking 12 or more units during the academic year that includes the Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters. Students who enroll on a flat tuition schedule for 12 units or more during an academic year (including combined Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters) are only eligible for a prorated refund if they submit timely add/drop forms and are approved by the Academic Dean to drop to fewer than 12 enrolled units for the combined Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. For example, if you register for 9 units in Fall Semester, 9 in Spring Semester, and 4 units for the Summer Semester, but are approved to drop all Summer Semester courses, there is no prorated tuition refund because you will have already completed more than 12 semester units (in this example, 18 units during the Fall and Spring) during the academic year.
Students who submit timely add/drop forms and are approved to enroll in fewer than 12 units in an academic year can be eligible for a prorated refund of tuition charges. To be eligible for a tuition refund, a student must notify the Academic Dean and the Registrar by filing a timely add/drop form and submitting a written notice (by hard copy or email) of his/her intention to reduce the number of enrolled units and/or withdraw from the academic program. The amount of tuition refund is determined as of the date of receipt of written notice of withdrawal and is calculated as follows:
Withdrawal before the start of instruction: 100% Tuition Refund
Withdrawal during the first 60% of instruction: * Pro Rata Tuition Refund
Total hours of instruction offered (minus) Total hours elapsed X Total Tuition Cost
Total hours of instruction offered
Withdrawal after completion of 60%* of instruction: No refund
* 60% of instruction is completed in the 9th week of classes during the Fall and Spring Semesters and in the 6th week of classes during the Summer Semester.
Please note that fees are not refundable.
Students attending the College under the Veteran’s Administration Bill are governed by a special refund policy. For more information, contact Dean of Admissions Wendy LaRiviere at firstname.lastname@example.org or 831-582-4000 ext. 1012.
