Regular tuition rates are set by directive of the Board. Payment of tuition is due at designated times, as published on the COCC website. Tuition may be differentially set based on the residence of the student, or for the type of courses. Fees may be charged for late registration, labs, field trips, tests, supplies, etc. Tuition and fees are due by the second Friday of the term.
Tuition and fees payment for all classes is due by the end of business on the second Friday of the term. Students will be assessed a late payment fee each week after that the balance remains unpaid
For courses that are full-term in length: A 100% refund of tuition and fees is available until the end of business on the second Friday of the term (5pm for Fall, Winter and Spring; 1pm for Summer). No portion of the tuition and fees is refundable after the end of this period.
For Short-term Credit Classes which span two weeks or less in the term: The class must be dropped before the first day of class in order to be eligible for a 100% refund.
For Short-term Credit Classes which span more than two weeks but not more than seven weeks in the term: The class must be dropped no later than three days after the class start date in order to be eligible for a 100% refund. Some specially priced courses do not follow this policy.
To qualify for the refund the student must assure that a drop is processed either by visiting or calling the Enrollment Services Office at any campus by the deadline. The drop must be submitted on Monday-Friday, excluding holidays. Any debt owed to the College will be processed against a refund first, and then the net balance, if any, will be remitted.
