General Refund Policy
Academic: See the Academic Procedures section of the catalog for academic withdrawal procedures.
Financial: The College has many continuing expenses, such as faculty salaries and plant maintenance. In order to plan and maintain these services over the entire semester, it is essential that the annual income from fees be assured. For this reason, it is understood that students are enrolled for the entire semester. The fact that school fees are paid in two or more installments does not constitute a fractional contract.
In view of the foregoing, a refund of any portion of the tuition and fees will be made only in the case of official withdrawal from the College through the Office of the Provost and on the following basis:
|The Portion of Tuition and Fees, Room Returned:|
|When the student has been enrolled:|
Up to 7 calendar days after classes begin
8 to 14 calendar days
15 to 21 calendar days
22 to 28 calendar days
|29 to 35 calendar days||30%|
|36 to 42 calendar days||15%|
No comprehensive refund will be allowed after six (6) weeks. No refund will be issued after the first 7 calendar days after classes begin.
In the Online and Evening Program refunds are as follows:
- Up to 7 calendar days after course begins - 100% refund
- 8 calendar days to end of course - 0% refund
Note: for a military student who is taking Internet courses and using Tuition Assistance there will be a 100% refund if the course is dropped up to 7 calendar days after the course begins.
Refunds for students receiving Federal, State, or Institutional Financial Aid will be made in accordance with the regulations governing the respective programs. Policy statements regarding the refund of financial aid money are available in the Business Office or Financial Aid Office. An unofficial withdrawal may result in a student’s forfeiting all financial aid and thus becoming responsible for the entire balance. Schedules are sent to all students at the beginning of each semester.
Note: Schedules concerning refund dates are sent to all students at the beginning of each semester. Students are asked to check their limestone.edu email addresses and LC Portal.
