Refund Policy for State-Supported Credit Courses
The refund schedule for state-supported credit courses is as follows:
• 100% through first ten (10) business days of the quarter
• 50% after tenth (10th) business day of the quarter through 20th calendar day of the
quarter. Contact Enrollment Services by emailing for information about refunds after the 20th calendar day
Refund Percentage Information
Please see the Tuition & Financial Aid section of quarterly class schedule for more information about refund percentages. The following policies are in place to explain the refund percentage. Refund percentages are based on prior full payment of tuition & fees
• If you are using the Student Payment Plan or have made partial payment you may still owe a balance if you drop your class during the partial refund periods noted previously
• Refunds for state-supported courses that start after the regular quarter begins, or short
courses that begin any time during the quarter, shall be made in proportion to the tuition
and fee refund percentages above
• Refund deadlines may differ for classes that begin after the first week of the quarter; and
may also differ for Washington On-Line, extended learning classes, and classes with
start dates mid-quarter and later
• The college will use the start date of the student's longest course during the quarter
when calculating refunds upon the student withdrawal from all courses; this ratio depends on the total number of class sessions and the number of sessions already held, regardless of attendance in those same classes
Petitions for Exceptions
The college considers extenuating circumstances for exceptions to the refund policy. The key reasons an exception might be made are:
• Being called to active US military duty
• Documented medical problems for yourself or a dependent
Please contact Enrollment Services for the general petition form and questions regarding required documentation of military orders or medical issues.
Pass-Through Fees Refund
Fees that are passed through to another agency may be refunded at 100% through the first week of the quarter only. No refund will be made if an insurance claim has been filed.
