Refunds
What is the refund policy?

Tuition refund processing for a term begins approximately two  weeks after the first class day of the primary term start date, and financial aid refund processing begins approximately one week after the primary term's census date. Students who pay by credit card generally receive their refund as a credit against the  charge on the credit card account or as an e-Refund to their saved refund profile. If a VISA, MasterCard, or Discover gift card was used to pay charges, any refund amount will be refunded to the gift card.  Refund checks for students who paid by check, cash, or debit card and/or financial aid award credits are mailed to the student's permanent address of record maintained by the Admissions and Records Office; or to expedite receipt of the refund, students may elect to receive their funds electronically to a saved checking or savings account.

 To sign up for electronic refunds:

     - Log into CougarWeb
     - Select the Quicklink 'Pay by Credit Card/Check'
     - Select the Collin College Account Suite bar
     - Select eRefund tab, then 'Set Up Account' button
     - Provide the requested
checking/savings account information
     - Read the terms and then check the 'I Accept' box to continue 
   


IMPORTANT NOTICEIf activity on a student account generates a credit balance, the credit amount will be applied against any outstanding charges—including charges assessed in another term—before any refund is processed for the student.

Students in canceled classes, who make a payment and do not add another class, will automatically be dropped and refunded through the scheduled refund process for the term.

How do I know how much my refund will be?

Remisison of tuition and fee charges is calculated in accordance with the state-mandated rules (see below). One hundred percent (100%) remission is calculated for drops completed prior to each term's first class day.  Any course dropped on or after the first day of a term or express session identified with the term will remit tuition and fee charges at the state mandated percentage rate (less than 100%), even if another course is added on the same date. The first class day is always the first official day of the term or express session, not the first day of a specific course.

Even-exchange course swapping (drop/add of same number of hours with no fee assessment for the dropped course) is not available after the term or express session begins.  Courses dropped by the student, either on-line or in person after the term or express session begins will only have the percentage based tuition and fee remission of charges as defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rules below. Effective as of each session start date, which varies depending on the calendar week the course begins and the course duration, the tuition and fee remission percentage will be no more than 70 percent.  Any added course will be assessed at the full tuition rate for the number of hours and the residency status of the student.
