Tuition Refunds

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.

For tuition refund:

  • Drop the course using WebRunner by deadline below, or
  • Submit a Schedule Change form at any LBCC registration counter by deadline below

NOTE: Be sure to hit SUBMIT in WebRunner to save your changes!

Refunds will be mailed to you or credited to your account after the second week of classes. If a class is canceled by the college, you will receive a full refund or, if you prefer, you can enroll in another class through WebRunner, or by submitting a Schedule Change form at any Registration counter.

NOTE: Classes dropped during the refund period will not be included on your academic record.

Refund petition after deadline

You can petition for a refund after the deadline if circumstances beyond your control are significant enough to prevent you from dropping within the refund period or if they occurred after the refund period. Petitions must outline your "serious and compelling" need for a late refund, and must include support documentation. Once submitted, you will be informed of an approval or denial by email, so check your student email often after you submit the form. The petition can be found by clicking here: Petition for Refund Form
