What is the refund policy?

Tuition refund processing for an undergraduate term begins the month after registration opens Continuing Education course refunds are processed on a continuing basis. Eligible credit amounts from registration and/or residency changes may take up to 30 days to be refunded.  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. (Note:  Some system processes result in refund types which vary from the initial payment tender.)  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.

IMPORTANT NOTICEIf activity on a student account generates a credit balance, the credit amount may be applied against any past due 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?

Remission 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 undergraduate 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.  Continuing Education courses must be dropped two days prior to the course start date to receive 100 percent credit.

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.  Refunds of 100 percent will no longer be available for dropped/withdrawn courses, including those changes based on campus, professor, and/or date/time convenience; and students are encouraged to consider the financial consequences  prior to making schedule changes.  Effective as of each undergraduate 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.  Full payment for all assessed charges is due at the time of registration activity to ensure enrollment status of all courses.

Important Note:  The refund dates above are provided as a sampling only.  Additional Express Classes, Weekend Classes, and Mini-semester sessions are offered and those sessions have refund rules based on the session start date and course duration.
   Contact the Cashier's Office for specific dates and refund amounts for the specific course and part of term.

These dates are provided for information purposes only before the printed official registration guide is available. We reserve the right to make changes or deletions at any time without notice. In the event of a discrepancy between the dates on this page and the dates on the printed registration guide, the student is responsible for verifying the dates on the printed registration guide and/or contacting the Cashier to verify/confirm dates.

 

As noted above, Collin's refund policy is defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board refund rules and is determined by course start date, duration of course, and date of student drop/withdrawal activity.  However, for some unforeseen medical emergency and/or death in the immediate family situations, Collin's Refund Exception Review Committee may authorize an exception to the refund policy with a credit for tuition and/or fee charges.  For detailed criteria and submission instructions, refer to the Out of Policy Refund Petition.
