Tuition Refund Policy

Responsibility for Payment of Tuition and Fees

The following students are financially responsible to the College regardless of attendance:

  • Students who fail to complete a Drop/Add Form within the refund period of the semester will be financially responsible to the College for the unpaid balance of tuition and fees, regardless of attendance in the student's registered courses.
  • Students whose tuition and fees are deferred against pending financial aid awards at any time during enrollment, and who subsequently become ineligible for the financial aid for any reason, will be liable for the full amount of any unpaid balance due to the College.
  • Students who remit payment for tuition and fees with a check that is returned unpaid (for any reason) become liable for the full amount of any unpaid balance due to the College.
  • Students who receive a financial aid refund and subsequently have their aid canceled or reduced are not waived from their debt to the College. The student remains liable for the full amount of any unpaid balance due to the College resulting from a reduction in financial aid.
  • Students registering for courses incur financial responsibility for the registered courses as of the first day of the academic period. Failure to attend a class or failure to make full payment for a class does not relieve the student of the financial responsibility incurred upon registration.

Tuition refunds will be granted after the following requirements have been met:

Refunds will not be issued:

  • For withdrawals that occur without receipt of a signed Drop/Add Form
  • For administrative withdrawals that occur due to the student's failure to comply with New York State-mandated immunization requirements
  • To students dismissed for disciplinary reasons
  • On non-refundable fees
  • On courses considered to be Learning Contracts
  • Unless the Tuition Refund Request Form is submitted within one year after the end of semester/session for which the tuition liability was incurred.
