Refunds

Refunds: Tuition - Withdrawals

Semester tuition and ASLC and technology infrastructure fee refunds for students at the McMinnville or Portland Campuses who withdraw from all courses during a regular semester before the end of the semester shall follow the printed schedule. The tuition refund is determined by the date the student notifies the college in writing in accordance with the college withdrawal procedures of his or her decision to withdraw, not by the date the student stops attending classes. Certain fees shall be exempt from this refund policy. These fees include various course-related fees (see Refunds: Various Course-Related Fees), and any other fees deemed appropriate by the college. All tuition and ASLC and technology infrastructure fees for a term will be refunded if the college is notified in writing before the beginning of classes for that term. Otherwise, for fall, spring, and summer, the following schedule is in effect if the college is notified in writing on or before the dates listed below. See the OCE section of the catalog for the OCE refund schedule.
