Tuition Refund Policy and Schedule

Tuition Refund Policy

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

  • If a student withdraws from a credit 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 credit 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.  

Percentage of Refund

Time Frame of Refund

100% Day 1-7 of the semester

NOTE: Refund amounts are determined by specific dates within each semester for all classes and will be prorated for courses less than 16 weeks in length. A full refund of tuition and fees is made if the college cancels a scheduled class.
