Refunds of tuition and fees for courses of academic credit will be made when students withdraw from a course for which they have already paid the tuition in full and have no other outstanding balance. Students who choose not to complete a course must officially withdraw from the course. Tri-C is not obligated to refund students who have not withdrawn or not paid the tuition, even if they did not attend a class. Financial Aid students should contact their campus Student Financial Aid Office to determine how a withdraw will affect their aid eligibility.

The following schedule governs all tuition and fee liability and available refunds for full-term courses of academic credit. You may still be responsible for all or a percentage of the tuition and fee charges.

Tuition and Fees for Full Semester Liability Refund
First Week 0% 100%
Second Week 30% 70%
Third Week 50% 50%
Fourth Week 75% 25%
Fifth Week and after 100% 0%

The withdraw/refund schedule for all parts of semester and the summer session will be determined in proportion to the full semester schedule. Refunds for the current term begin 2 weeks after the start of the term. Refunds for Financial Aid begin later in the term.  Please visit http://www.tri-c.edu/paying-for-college/withdraw-refund.html for more information.

Full refunds of instructional, general and supplemental fees are granted only if Tri-C cancels a course or if a student withdraws during the 100% refund period (see preceding schedule).

No refunds are granted if a student is dismissed from Tri-C for disciplinary reasons.
