Tuition refunds are based on the table below. Class length is based on the number of term weeks the class is scheduled to meet (week is 12:01 a.m. Monday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday). Refunds will not be granted after the drop deadlines listed below. Use WebRunner to drop classes on Saturday or Sunday.

Effective Summer Term 2013
A new tuition policy adopted in April creates a new tuition structure that allows cost recovery for classes and programs, which cost the college more to deliver, and in higher-cost programs that provide graduates with immediate opportunity to work.
Lower-division transfer courses that include a laboratory component (see attached) will have 21 percent additional tuition added only to the lab credits for these classes. For the majority of these courses, the lab portion represents one credit, so the additional tuition will be $19.70 per course. This effects lab courses in:
- Animal Science
- General Science
Career and Technical Education programs that are not already using a cost recovery model will have tuition equal to the standard tuition approved by the Board of Education in April plus 21 percent. These programs include:
- Automotive Technology
- Construction and Forestry Equipment Technology
- Dental Assistant
- Heavy Equipment/Diesel Technology
- Machine Tool Technology
- Mechatronics Technician/Industrial Technology
- Nursing Assistant
- Welding and Fabrication Technology
Students in the Culinary Arts Program will pay the tuition from the new model, but will no longer pay the program (F131) fee.
Nursing program students will continue to pay standard tuition, because the existing fees in the program already cover additional costs of the program.
