  • Tuition Refund Policy

    Tuition refunds are computed according to the date that the student drops one or more courses. Refunds are processed automatically by the college and take approximately 8-10 weeks from the date the college receives payment. This does not include regular Title IV (PELL) disbursements. Non-instructional fees are non-refundable, except when courses are cancelled by the college or if the student enters Military, Peace Corps or Vista service. 


    Students who drop courses from their record during the Change of Program period are entitled to a refund according to the following schedule:


    Refund Period for Fall & Spring 12-week Sessions

    Students who officially withdraw from a course after the above refund period will not be entitled to a refund. If the amount paid is less than the tuition (and/or tuition obligation) plus fees, you are responsible to pay the balance to the college. Please check your account balance(s) by logging on to your CUNYfirst account or by visiting us at C-110. 


    Tuition will be refunded 100 percent for those courses which, at any time, are cancelled by the College. Failure to attend class, merely giving notice to the instructor, or stopping payment on a check is not considered an official drop or withdrawal. It is the student’s responsibility to drop their class(es) if you do not plan on attending.


    Students who pay their tuition bill in full and subsequently drop one or more classes will have their refund calculated according to the above Tuition Refund schedule.


    Students who made a partial payment on their bill will have their tuition liability calculated according to the above Tuition Obligation schedule. A reduction in tuition charges may not necessarily result in a refund and, in some instances, a tuition balance may still be due. Student activities fees, technology fees and consolidated services fees are non-refundable except for the following conditions:


    • Course(s) cancelled by the college
    • Student registration is cancelled by the college
    • If the student enters Military, Peace Corps or Vista Service

  •  Medical Leave of Absence
    The refund is calculated according to both the effective date of the leave and the attendance verification. If the date on the Medical Leave of Absence is after the last day of the refund period and/or if the attendance verification record indicates that you attended classes after the last day of refund period, the student is liable for all tuition fees and no refund is due.

    Bursar:
    If your Medical Leave of Absence is effective after the first day of classes but within the tuition refund period, you will be charged a tuition liability. The term tuition liability refers to the percentage of tuition and fees a student owes based on original tuition charges.

    Please note: If you are entitled to a refund, the amount received is based on attendance verification. If the effective date on the Medical Leave of Absence is after the last day of the refund period, and/or if the attendance verification record indicates that you attended classes after the last day of the refund period, you are liable for all tuition and fees and NO REFUND IS DUE.

    Financial Aid (Federal Regulations):
    Please keep in mind how a Medical Leave of Absence affects your Financial Aid if you have paid for your registration with PELL and/or TAP.

    Federal regulations stipulate that the Medical Leave of Absence is not to exceed 180 days within a 12-month period. In the event that the leave exceeds this time period, it is considered a withdrawal and the return of all Title IV (Pell) funds apply.

    Note: A Medical Leave of Absence means that you will receive grades of “W” for all courses taken during the period covered by the requested leave. It in no way guarantees a refund or a reduction in a student’s tuition liability.
