Tuition Refund Policy


A 100% refund will be given only when a class is cancelled by NCTC or if a student completely withdraws before the first class day*. For a class dropped after the first day*, refunds will follow the state approved refund schedule. Please see refund schedules below for information on long semester refunds as well as flex entry classes, summer semesters, and mini-mesters.

*First class day is defined as the official start date of the term the class is in. The official start date for each class can be found on the student's schedule next to the course details.

Please note that "class day" is any day that the college is having classes. This does not represent each individual class meeting days. For example, a class that only meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays does not get to count Tuesdays and Thursdays only as "class days" for the refund period. Since the college has classes on Saturdays, all Saturdays are included in the calculation of the refund period (Saturdays count as a "class day") except for the Minimester.

STUDENTS WHO HAVE OPTED FOR THE NELNET PAYMENT PLAN AND DROPPING CLASSES AND/OR WITHDRAWING ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FULL PAYMENT OF THE PROMISSORY NOTE. REFUNDS WILL BE APPLIED TO ANY BALANCE DUE ON THE NOTE.
