2017 – 2018 LWTech Student Handbook
 A refund will occur only when you officially withdraw within the refund period (see the Academic Calendar for dates) by completing an add/drop form, available in Enrollment Services
 Refunds are provided back to students the same way they were distributed. If you pay with a credit card, the refund will be credited to that credit card account; if you pay by cash or check, a refund check will be mailed to your current address on file with Enrollment Services
 Amounts of less than $5 will not be refunded; allow up to four (4) weeks for processing
 Refunds for students receiving financial aid will be refunded to the financial aid program or agency
Not attending a class does not make students eligible for a refund; which would include both tuition and fees
 Students will forfeit all claims to refund of tuition and fees if they fail to withdraw from a course or are suspended or terminated for misconduct
 For a first-time, federally funded student, the refund will be calculated on a prorated basis consistent with applicable federal rules, as determined by Financial Aid
Course Cancellations
If a class is canceled 100% of tuition and fees will be refunded.
Refund Policy for State-Supported Credit Courses
The refund schedule for state-supported credit courses is as follows:
 100% through first five (5) business days of the quarter
 50% after fifth (5th) business day of the quarter through 20th calendar day of the quarter. Contact Enrollment Services 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 of self or a dependent
Please contact Enrollment Services for the general petition form and questions regarding required documentation of military orders or medical issues.
