The refund amount for students withdrawing from the institution shall be based on a pro rata percentage determined by dividing the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed by the total calendar days in the semester.  The total calendar days in a semester includes weekends, but excludes scheduled breaks of five or more days and days that a student was on an approved leave of absence.  The unearned portion shall be refunded up to the point in time that the amount equals 60%.

Students that withdraw from the institution when the calculated percentage of completion is greater than 60%, are not entitled to a refund of any portion of institutional charges.  No refunds are issued for dropping individual courses after the last day to register.

No refunds will be made to students who withdraw from the College without filing official withdrawal forms with the Registrar’s Office.

The Date of the first disbursement for the term will be posted on the RAIN Announcement Page or Student Accounts Page
