Effective Fall Semester, 2011, students who officially withdraw from the college or an individual course by the end of the fourteenth (14th) calendar day of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, less non-refundable fees. Students in classes that meet in a format shorter than the traditional semester (15-16 weeks) will have seven (7) calendar days from the designated start of the class to withdraw for a full refund. If the seventh (7th) or fourteenth (14th) calendar day falls on a weekend or holiday, the drop refund date will be the first business day following the weekend or holiday. Exception: students in courses that meet for two weeks or fewer must drop by the end of the first day of the class in order to get a 100% refund.
Students who drop a course or courses by the 14th calendar day of the semester (or other prorated enrollment period) will be refunded 100%.
All Federal Title IV funds (i.e., Pell, SEOG, Perkins Loan) are prorated and refunded according to the rules and regulations mandated by the U.S. Department of Education.
Students registered for workshops through system divisions of Community Education or Center for Workforce Development must withdraw in writing at least three (3) business days prior to the first workshop session in order to receive a full refund of tuition and fees.
The policy of the Lakes Region CC System is to grant a refund of tuition only when a student formally withdraws by the 8th calendar day of the semester or other prorated enrollment period.
Under special circumstances and for compelling reasons beyond a student's control, the College may grant an exception to this policy. Students may request such an exception by completing a form available from the office of the Vice President for Student Services.
A tuition credit must be requested in writing and is granted when circumstances meet one of the following criteria: a death in the family, a medical emergency, a military commitment or a situation beyond the control of the student. In addition, a tuition credit is granted only when tuition has been paid. Tuition credits are not given when the account shows an outstanding balance.
A tuition waiver is granted when the student has not yet paid tuition and circumstances meet one of the following criteria: a death in the family, a medical emergency, a military commitment or a situation beyond the control of the student. Tuition waiver forms are available from the office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
