If a check is returned by the bank, a hold will be placed on the student’s record in addition to a $15 fee, and students are expected to pay the fees within 10 business days. If the fees are not paid an additional $10 fee will be charged to the student record. The only acceptable forms of payment for these fees are cash, money order, or cashier’s check.
To be eligible for a refund of enrollment and other fees, students must drop classes by the published deadline.
Dropping classes after the published deadline will result in loss of enrollment fees. Adding classes after the refund deadline will require that new fees are paid. Refunds for ASB card, ASG Representation Fee, and Parking Permits are processed when the request is made at the Admissions & Records Office by the "last day to drop with a refund" deadline. Parking permit refunds require the return of the parking permit. Refunds for Credit Card payments will be returned to the student's credit card. Check and cash payments will be refunded by check and mailed to the student's current home address. It is important that we have a current postal address on file. (The refund process takes 4 to 6 weeks' time, for the check delivery.)
Enrollment fees for short-term classes will be refunded if students drop before 10% of the scheduled class meetings have elapsed. For short-term classes that meet five days or less, students must drop before the first class meeting, in order to receive a refund.
