Scope of tuition and special course/program connected fees refund policies.

Tuition and special course/program connected fees refunds will be made for the student's reduction in class load or for a student's complete withdrawal from college whether he or she has attended classes or not. Students will forfeit all claims to refund of tuition and special course/program connected fees when they discontinue class or classes without completion of the proper forms and procedures according to the published time schedule, discontinue class or classes because of misconduct, and when the tuition and special course/program connected fees are indicated by the board of trustees or the president in the quarterly course schedule, and/or course announcement as nonrefundable. Community service course fees are exempt from this policy.
