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:
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:
