Tuition and Fee Refunds

Tuition and Fee Refunds

The tuition policy is set by the State of North Carolina and is subject to change. A 100% refund shall be made if a student drops the class by submitting the required paperwork or completing the drop action prior to the first day of classes for the term as noted in the College Calendar on the website at Also, a student is eligible for a 100% refund if the class in which the student is registered is canceled. 

A 75% refund shall be made if the student officially drops the class prior to or on the official 10% point of the term. Insurance, technology, consumable, and student activity fees are not refundable. Federal regulations, if different from above, will overrule this policy.

For classes that start a week or more into a term, a full refund will be provided if a student drops a class prior to the beginning date of the class. A 75% refund will be provided for a class dropped on the beginning date through the 10% point of the class. Only hours dropped below a total of 16 credit hours are eligible for a refund.

Tuition Refund Process

To be eligible for tuition refund the student must:

1. Register and pay tuition and fees.

b. By having an advisor process the drop. The student is responsible for ensuring this has been done.
