Tuition Refund Policy

 

In the event that you initiate a complete withdrawal from Windward Community College or a change from full-time to part-time during the three-week refund period for semester long classes, tuition and fees are refunded as indicated below. 

The college reserves the right to redirect refunds to apply to any financial account balances for another semester.


Summer Sessions

Refunds for Summer Courses are determined by the elapsed instructional time as a percentage of the total instructional time for the course.  A student may receive 100%, 50% or 0% refund.  Processing of refunds generally start after the last day of receiving 50% refund of tuition in summer session II.


Fall and Spring Semesters

Processing of refunds generally start after the last day of receiving 50% refund of tuition (see Academic Calendar).

100% refund of tuition and fees for complete withdrawal only if made on or before the last day of late registration.

100% refund of tuition only (no fees) for partial withdrawal if made on or before the last day of late registration.

50% refund of tuition (no fees) if complete withdrawal or change in status or a change from one tuition rate to another tuition rate if made within the first three weeks of instruction.

0% refund if complete withdrawal or change in status or a change from one tuition rate to another tuition rate is made beginning the fourth week of instruction.
