For summer and winter session(s), the refund period is the first 20% of the total days (including Saturday, Sunday & Holidays) in the session.  The refund period is divided into two equal segments corresponding to a 50% and 25% refund period.  For example:

  • The refund period is the first 20% of the total days (including Saturday, Sunday, & Holidays) in the term/session.   The last day of this period coincides with the census (Form "A") date.
  • The 20% represents the traditional semester's census date; for example: 7 days in a week X 15 weeks in a term/session 105 days X 20% = 21 days (the census date is the 21st day) The refund period should be divided into three equal segments corresponding to the three refund percentages (75%, 50% & 25%) as shown above.  
  • The refund period corresponds to the 21-day period noted above.  Thus, 21/3 = 7 day segments in which, withdrawal during the first 7 days would allow for a 75% refund, withdrawal during the second 7 days would allow for a 50% refund and, withdrawal during the third 7 days would allow for a 25% refund. 
  • In those instances where the traditional 15-week session does not exist, the census date and therefore the determination of the refund period may result in less than a complete day. In those cases, the college should round to the nearest full day, for example: 7 days in a week X 10 weeks in a term/session 70 days X 20% = 14 days (the census date is the 14th day) Therefore, under these circumstances, the refund period corresponds to the 14 day period noted above.  
Thus, 14/3 = 4.667 which should be rounded to 5 day segments in which, withdrawal during the first 5 days would allow for a 75% refund, withdrawal during the second 5 days would allow for a 50% refund and, withdrawal after the second 5 day segment and prior to and including the census date (14th day) would allow for a 25% refund. Thus, the last period would contain only 4 days, even though the first and second periods each contain 5 days.

Note: Unless extenuating circumstances exist, no application for refunds or reduction in liability for the fall, spring and winter semester will be accepted after the end of the fiscal year. Refund applications (for Summer and Intersession terms) can be accepted until the beginning of the fall semester.
