Refunds
What is the refund policy?

Tuition refund processing for a term begins approximately two  weeks after the first class day, and financial aid refund processing begins approximately one week after the 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. 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?

Refund amounts are calculated in accordance with the state-mandated refund policy (see below). One hundred percent (100%) refunds are calculated for drops completed prior to each term's first class day. Effective as of the 2012/2013 academic year, any course dropped after the first day of a term will be refunded at the state mandated percentage rate (less than 100%), even if another course is added on the same date.  Each term's first class day is always the first official day of the term, not the first day of a specific course.


As of the 2012/2013 academic year, even-exchange course swapping (drop/add of same number of hours with no fee assessment for the dropped course) will no longer be allowed after the term begins.  Courses dropped by the student, either on-line or in person after the term begins will be refunded as defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board refund rules below. Effective the first day of the term, the refund 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.
