Financial Obligation
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. The student is responsible for payment of charges outstanding after the drop or withdrawal is processed and charges are adjusted.

Truck Driving Program Refund Policy
The College has an established refund policy for truck driving program students who withdraw from courses before the end of the program.  The registration fee and billable fees related to your physical and drug screen are non-refundable.  Students who withdraw from their classes before the course begins or before the end of the first week of classes will receive a 100% tuition refund if all books and supplies are returned in like new condition.  Charges for students who withdraw or are terminated after the first week of classes, but on or before the 60% point in time in the enrollment period, will be prorated based on the number of clock hours completed.  No tuition refund will be approved for students who withdraw or are terminated after the 60% point in the enrollment period.
