The refund policy for fees and tuition (except for Title IV recipients) collected from students shall be as follows:

1. Withdrawals and Changes of Enrollment
A. Changes in schedules and complete withdrawals from the institution during the defined add/drop period will result in full charges for courses added and full credit for courses dropped. No refunds will be made after the add/drop period for that session except as stipulated for Title IV recipients.
B. The refund policy for fees and tuition collected from Title IV recipients shall be as follows: The Higher Education Act Amendments of 1992, (Title IV, Part G, and 484V) require that each institution refunds unearned tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges to students who withdraw from an institution before the end of the semester or term.
The Higher Education Act defines a -fair and equitable refund policy as a policy that provides for a refund in an amount of at least the largest of the amounts provided under:
a. The requirements of applicable state law;
b. The specific refund requirements established by the institution's nationally recognized accrediting agency and approved by the Secretary of Education; or
c. The Federal Government has set guidelines concerning students who receive Title IV Aid and completely withdraw from school or stop attending courses. Any student making a complete withdrawal or that stops attending their classes who received a Federal Pell Grant, SEOG, Subsidized Stafford Loan, Unsubsidized Stafford Loan or a Parent (PLUS) Loan, will be required to pay back money to the school immediately if they drop out or stop attending courses before 60% of the semester has been finished. After the calculations are figured, the Redlands Community College Financial Aid Office will notify any student that might owe money back to the Federal Government. Your Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress status will also be evaluated at the end of the semester and you will be notified accordingly.

2. Fees Applicable Only for Current Semester
Fees are applicable only for the current semester. If a student withdraws and is entitled to a refund, the amount of the refund cannot be carried forward as a credit to a subsequent session.

3. Refunds for Classes Offered on a Non-Standard Schedule
Institutions may refund tuition and fees paid by a student who must withdraw from a course offered on a schedule that differs from the standard 16-week term or 15-week trimester. Each institution may develop refund procedures for courses offered on a non-standard schedule.

4. Reminder
If you receive financial aid assistance and you drop classes or withdraw from college, you may be responsible for paying back to the federal government some or all of the financial aid you have received.

Fees Applicable Only For Current Semester
