Students who drop courses with the approval of the Records office prior to the beginning of a semester and the date specified in the Academic Calendar, will be entitled to a 100 percent refund (or adjustment) of tuition and fees charged, less the non-refundable admissions deposit and any amounts owed to the College for fines, returned checks and other charges and fees. In addition, a student who drops during the following specified periods will be entitled to the applicable refund (or adjustment) of tuition and fees, less the admissions deposit, student fees, and any amounts owed to the College:
|First week of class or equivalent % for non-standard session||75%|
|Second week of class or equivalent % for non-standard session||50%|
|Third week of class or equivalent % for non-standard session||25%|
|A standard session is considered as 15 weeks. Refund deadlines for courses with nonstandard start and end dates are based on equivalent meeting days and will differ from those published.|
Please note that a drop, withdrawal or failure to successfully attend and/or complete a course or courses does not absolve a student's financial responsibility for his/her educational expenses. Students are ultimately responsible for all charges assessed regardless of expected payment from other sources, and will be billed accordingly if such payment is not received by the College.
Special Note to Financial Aid Recipients: In accordance with federal and state guidelines, a drop or withdrawal may reduce a student's financial aid award. As a result, the student may owe a balance to the college. Any amounts owed after adjustment of the financial aid award is billed to the student. See Financial Obligations and Holds for more information on outstanding amounts owed to NCC.
