Notice:

All Summer and Fall classes will be held online, and all admissions and student support services are available remotely. Visit the Virtual Student Resource Center to access the assistance that you need.

Refund Periods

The refund period is based on when the terms begin and not when a class meets for the first time. After the payment deadline for the term and before the first day of the term or in the case of course cancellation by the College, you may receive 100% tuition refund. 

Students are personally responsible for dropping their classes before the first day of classes if they are not planning to attend. This applies to all students including those receiving financial aid. Failure to do so will result in tuition and applicable fees being charged to your student account for which you will be held financially responsible. 

Financial aid cannot be applied to any class you are registered for that you did not attend, and adjustments may be made to aid received. You are liable for all charges incurred, and your eligibility for future financial aid could be affected. 

Refunds are based upon the date of receipt of notification (Drop/Add or Registration Form, Withdrawal Form, or online transaction) without regard to reason for withdrawal. If a student is unable to come to campus, he/she must send an email message from their MyCCP email account to . In that case, the refund will be based on the date the email was received, according to the following schedule:

*50% refund only for tuition, course fees, online learning course fees, general college fees, technology fees, and nonresident capital fees.

Note: Students registering during the first week of the term are also subject to the above refund schedule. Refunds for non-credit courses will be granted only if the class is canceled or the student withdraws before the first class meeting.

Important: To assist students with changes to their schedules, the College permits students to do an even exchange. An even exchange is both dropping and adding a course with the same number of credit hours within the same term (15A, 10A, 7A, 7B, etc.) and prior to the end of the refund period. Students who drop a course after a term starts and prior to the end of the refund period will be responsible for 50% of the tuition for the course that was dropped.

Students who drop a course after a term starts and prior to the end of the refund period and add a course in a different term will be responsible for 50% of the tuition for the course that was dropped and 100% of the tuition for the course that was added. For example, dropping a 15-week Biology 106 course and adding a 7-week Biology 106 would result in a 50% tuition charge for the 15-week course and a 100% tuition charge for the 7-week course.

Exception:  15-Week to 10-Week Exchange

Students are permitted to exchange a 15-week course for a 10-week course (one course to one course even exchange) at no cost.  This course exchange is only permissible for the first seven (7) calendar days of the 15-week term.  Students can accomplish this exchange in person only by visiting Enrollment Central (Records and Registration) at the Main Campus or at the Regional Centers.  The 15-week to 10-week course exchange must be completed by the close of business on the 7th calendar day of the 15-week term.

Extenuating Circumstances

Students with documented extenuating medical complications, or personal emergency or situation such as the death of a close relative, can use the Special Request Form for Student Financial Account Adjustment (available in the Electronic Forms section of MyCCP) to petition to receive the 50% tuition for the course that was dropped. Adding a course after the first course meeting requires signature(s) from the professor and/or department head as per registration policy.
