Refunds

North Carolina Refund Policy

The refund policy is set by the North Carolina State Legislature and is subject to change by its actions. A pre-registered curriculum student who officially drops one or more classes prior to the first day of the semester will be eligible for a one hundred percent (100%) tuition refund. The student fee will also be refunded if the student drops all classes prior to the first day of the semester. Thereafter, a refund of seventy-five percent (75%) of the tuition will be made through the ten percent (10%) date of the semester. All tuition will be refunded if a class is canceled.

 

Federal Refund Policy

The Federal Refund Policy applies to all students receiving federal financial aid funds including those who qualify for the state refund policy mentioned above. This policy requires the school to determine the amount of Title IV aid a student has earned. The earned amount is determined by calculating the number of class days prior to the date of withdrawal. The unearned portion must be returned. This may require repayment by the student of all or part of any federal money received by the student.

Refunds will be allocated by law according to the following order:

Loans:

  • Federal Unsubsidized
  • Federal Subsidized
  • Federal PLUS

Grants:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • FSEOG

Students may obtain further information regarding these refund policies and refund calculations from the Financial Aid Office.
