    5. Special Waivers
      The Refund Appeal Committee is authorized to modify the tuition refund policy for specific students on a case by case basis under the following extenuating or extraordinary circumstances: severe illness documented by a doctor’s certificate, erroneous advisement by the college; and military transfer. Other extenuating or extraordinary circumstances may also be considered upon written request and submitted to the Refund Appeal Committee. Exceptions which should not normally be considered include change in job, normal illness, and poor decision or change of mind by a student.
    6. Change of Registration - General and School of Workforce & Continuing Education Courses
      Where a student has changed his or her course schedule to a different mix of general and extension credit courses, the College may elect not to apply the refund policy which would otherwise be in effect with respect to the course(s) deleted, and may, instead, collect or refund only the net amount due based on the tuition and fee policies applicable to the total student course load.
  2. Refund Policy for School of Workforce & Continuing Education Extension Fund Credit or Equivalent No Credit Development Courses
    When the College cancels a course, the student has the option of transferring into another course within the same semester, or requesting a refund. Refunds are issued within 4 to 6 weeks. When a student drops a course up until 10% of the course has elapsed a full refund will be processed.  If a student drops a course after 10% but prior to 20% of the course elapsing a full refund will be processed and a $50 fee will be incurred for each course. Students can drop a course through MyCommNet.  A student may officially withdraw from a credit course any time after 20% of the class elapsing, but before the end of the last day of class. The final examination day is not considered as a class day. Refunds are not issued to students who withdraw and a $50 fee will be incurred for each dropped course. To initiate the withdrawal process, or for more information, contact the Counseling Office, at 860-906-5040.

    PLEASE NOTE: Do not assume you will be deregistered for a course if you do not pay. See above refund policy.

    5. Refund Policy for Students Participating in Federal Title IV Student Aid Programs
    In accordance with Federal regulations, financial aid eligibility will be recalculated for all Title IV* recipients who completely withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 61% of the semester.

 

The recalculation is based on the percent of EARNED aid using the following formula:

Percent earned = Number of days completed up to the withdrawal date** divided by total days in the semester.

Federal financial aid is returned to the Federal government based on the percent of unearned aid using the following formula:

Aid to be returned = (100% minus the percent earned) multiplied by the amount of aid disbursed toward institutional charges.

Samples of the calculations are available upon request in the Financial Aid Office.

* Title IV Aid includes Federal PELL Grant, FSEOG Grant, Federal Stafford Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized), and PLUS Loans.

** Withdrawal Date is defined as the actual date the student began the institution’s withdrawal process, the student’s last day of recorded attendance, or the midpoint of the semester for a student who leaves without notifying the institution.
