Dropping a Course with Refund
Students will receive a refund for classes dropped through the drop deadline published in the schedule of classes. Students should refer to the schedule as varying term lengths are offered in any given semester. Refunds will not be issued for classes dropped after the published deadline for the session.
Students shall be eligible for a refund only for those credit hours dropped during the drop period. An official drop for students becomes effective on the date that the completed and signed drop form is received by the admissions and records office, not the date of the last class attended, unless the two days coincide. If a class is cancelled, tuition for that course will be refunded in full. Students are responsible for ensuring that forms reach appropriate offices by deadlines.
Tuition refunds will not be authorized after the refund date. For payments made on campus, refund checks are mailed from the Department of the Treasury approximately 2 weeks after the drop deadline. For payments made on-line via RCC’s website, refunds will be issued back to the credit card used for the on-line payment.
Note: Financial aid recipients who totally withdraw from college before 60 percent of the semester is completed fall under a return of Title IV funds procedure. Funds will be refunded according to U.S. Department of Education regulations. Funds may be refunded to a financial aid grantor. Course load reductions may reduce the amount of financial aid awarded. The financial aid office should be contacted for further details.
