Tuition Refund Policy

You may receive a refund of tuition and fees for any classes dropped by the census date or for any classes canceled by the College. The census dates are published each semester at CCD.edu/Academic-Calendar. The census date varies depending upon the length of the class. You may also refer to your schedule of classes to determine the census date for each class. It is your responsibility to drop classes by the published deadline.

No refunds are given after the census date. Students receiving financial aid may have their aid adjusted and should check with Financial Aid and Scholarships prior to dropping a class.

Students who are owed a refund will be required to pay for all classes added after refunds are issued. Account balances can be viewed and paid online at CCDConnect.

Prior to the census date, you may be dropped from your classes for failure to pay your outstanding balances or for non-attendance, which may include any required corequisite class regardless of attendance in that class. If dropped prior to the census date, you are not responsible for the tuition for dropped classes. If dropped after census for non-payment or non-attendance, you will not be permitted back into the class.

Military students who are called to active duty during the semester should talk to the Office of Registration & Records to discuss the tuition refund policy.

How the Refund Process Works

All enrolled students 17-years old and older will be mailed information to set up the student refund account after registering for classes. Upon receipt, you must select your refund preferences. You may select to have your refunds credited to your student refund account, may have your refunds credited to your existing bank account via ACH, or may request a paper check.
