Tuition and fee refunds will be issued to eligible students who drop credit classes within the refund period. Your initial payment method determines how your refund will be processed.*

Drop Deadlines

Before dropping classes, refer to the Drop Deadlines for Credit Courses to determine the last day to drop with 100% refund.  When dropping classes after established deadlines, please review the tuition refund policy and appeal process.

Refund Timing & Processing*

Credit card, debit card, and direct deposit refunds are processed daily Monday through Thursday. Check refunds are mailed on Fridays.

Please allow two weeks to receive your refund after dropping classes.  Generally, we do not process refunds before the established refund date listed on this page. If you would like to request an early refund for tuition and fees already paid for by cash, check, credit/debit, or ACH please submit an Early Refund Request Form.

The early refund request process cannot be used to request an early refund of financial aid.  A refund for any remaining financial aid, including any book advance funds not used, is sent to students approximately 3-4 weeks after the start of the semester.  

If you paid by credit or debit card

  • Any refund will be issued to the original card(s) used for payment.  If we are unable to issue the refund to the card used, the refund will be issued via direct deposit or check mailed to the address JCCC has on file.
