Tuition Refund Policy and Schedule

Tuition Refund Policy

Per SCC Board Policy 417, the tuition refund policy is as follows:

  • If a student withdraws from a course or from the college during the first three weeks after the start of the semester, a refund will be processed based on the date that the student withdraws.
  • If a student withdraws from a course or from the college, the student may receive a tuition refund for that session or semester provided an Add-Drop Form is completed and filed with Enrollment Services within a specified time, or the student withdraws online via SCC Connection. The date of the Add-Drop Form or the date the online drop is completed is used to determine the percentage of eligible refund.
  • When a last date to withdraw occurs over the weekend, it will be necessary to drop online through SCC Connection in order to qualify for the eligible refund amount.
