Refunds

Tuition Refunds for Credit Classes

The last day to drop a registered class and receive a tuition refund is dependent on the class dates and length of class (see Calendar). If you add or drop a class, it is recommended you check your myACCESS account to determine the impact on your account balance. If you drop a class, you may still be responsible for the cost of tuition and fees. Dropping a class during the refund period will not result in a "W" on your transcript. If you are receiving financial assistance, please note that dropping one or more courses may result in an adjustment of aid you receive; it is recommended that you contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance before dropping a class.

The 100% refund date for a class is the last day you can drop the class and receive 100% of the tuition charges credited for the class, minus fees for field studies classes, and the 50% date is the last day you can drop the class and receive 50% of the tuition charges credited for the class. You can view the exact refund dates for each of your classes by clicking on "My class schedule" in your myACCESS account.

The Registration Calendar indicates the appropriate time period for tuition refunds. Tuition refunds for classes that begin and end outside of the regular semester schedule are determined on an individual basis.

 

A 100% refund is granted for withdrawal up to one day prior to the first class. Parents must call (630) 942-2208 to request a withdrawal or they will be charged the full amount. Please note that non-attendance does not count as withdrawal. If a class is canceled, a complete refund will be issued.

A 100 percent refund is given if you withdraw up to one calendar day before the start of your class. Please note that non-attendance does not count as withdrawal.

Trip fees are non-refundable. Travel protection brochures are available in the Field Studies office.

A 100 percent refund is given for a withdrawal that is caused by a canceled class or a college error. If a substitute class is not taken, a refund for paid tuition and fees will be issued within two to three weeks.

Requests for medical withdrawals should be made to the Dean of Enrollment Services. Send medical forms to Student Registration Services, SSC 2221, (630) 942-2687. Requests should be made in writing and accompanied by documentation from a physician or medical institution to verify the medical condition, date of onset and estimated length of treatment. Request forms for medical withdrawals are reviewed individually. Refunds are issued when appropriate within the guidelines of the College of DuPage refund policy. You will receive written notification of the decision within three (3) weeks from the office of the Student Registration Services.

The $20 admission/recording fee will not be refunded.

Students withdrawing from credit classes that have lab/material fees will receive 100 percent of the lab/material fees for the first 7 percent of the session. Lab/material fees will not be refunded after 7 percent of the session.

If a student who is registered for both credit and non-credit classes wishes to withdraw from one class, the refund policy used will be the one appropriate for the class from which the student is withdrawing.

Appeals

Appeals regarding refunds should be made in writing to the office of the director of Admissions, Registration and Records. You will be notified in writing within two to three weeks of the decision whether or not to grant your refund request. To request an appeal in writing, print and complete the Tuition Refund Request form and return it to the appropriate office (refer to the form instructions for more information on the submission process).
