For classes meeting one time per week, refunds are based on each class meeting being counted as one week. All refunds are issued at the end of the fourth week of classes.
All College withdrawals must be processed in the Registrar’s Office. The fee refunds are computed according to the date the student actually appears and completes the College withdrawal process and not according to his or her last day of attendance.
An administrative fee not to exceed 5% of tuition and other institutional charges or $100, whichever is smaller, shall be assessed for each withdrawal within the period beginning the first day of class and ending at the end of the third week of class.
Coastal Alabama Community College complies with federal regulations relative to refund of tuition and other institutional charges for Title IV recipients.
Students who are active members of the Alabama National Guard or reservists who are active-duty military and are called to active duty in the time of national crisis shall receive a full tuition refund at the time of withdrawal, if such students are unable to complete the term due to active duty orders or assignment to another location.
Policy for Other Refunds
Students who do not completely withdraw from the College but drop a class during the regular drop/add period will be refunded the difference in tuition paid and the tuition rate applicable to the reduced number of hours, including fees appropriate to the classes dropped. There is no refund due to a student who withdraws from a class after the official drop/add period. If the student owes the College additional tuition and fees as a result of adding classes, the student must pay the additional amount to the Business Office before attending class. Amounts that may be due to students by the College as a result of dropping classes will be refunded as applicable after the second week of the term as long as the student account balance is zero.
No refunds of any type will be issued if the student has an account balance greater than zero. In some cases, you may be given a refund if you drop a class that meets on an irregular basis, for example, if you drop a class that meets only one day during the semester. For more information, contact the Business Office. For calculating refunds, a week is defined as seven (7) calendar days. The first official day of classes is indicated on the College calendar as the day that classes begin. This day may not be the first day on which all classes begin.
Refunds are issued through Touchnet. Students can log into their OneACCS account to access Touchnet Bill and Payment. From there, they will be able to set up direct deposit.
