Refund Policy Information

Students who officially terminate participation in classes for which they have registered may be eligible for a full or partial refund of tuition and certain mandatory fees. Except in the case of classes cancelled by the college, students must complete a withdrawal process through the Registrar’s Office in order to qualify for a refund.

Mandatory fees that may be refunded include the technology fee, building use fee, student services fee, and laboratory fees.

Drops processed online through MyBC or through the Registrar's Office prior to the Official Reporting Day (ORD) for the specific course will be dropped completely from the course and there will be no record on the student's transcript.  These drops will receive a full refund of tuition and certain mandatory fees. 

Drops processed after the ORD for the specific course will receive a partial refund based on the refund schedule found under Refund Options.  These courses will receive a grade of "W" on the student's transcript.

All credits will be applied to any outstanding balance owed to the college before a refund will be issued.


Refunds are issued by direct deposit to an account designated by the student, direct deposit to the student's myBC Card, or by check.


Tuition and fees paid directly to the institution by a sponsor, donor, grant, or scholarship shall be refunded to the source rather than directly to the student.

Credit Class Drops and Cancellations

When the college cancels a course, students will be refunded 100 percent of tuition and mandatory fees.

Students who officially drop a course or courses but remain enrolled at the college will have 100% of tuition and mandatory fees refunded during the first twelve class days of the fall (16 week), spring (16 week), or summer (11 week) semesters and the first four class days of the summer (6 week) semesters.  Afterward, the refund will be a percentage based on the withdrawal table above and the date the course is officially dropped.

No refunds for courses dropped after these deadlines.


 Non-Credit Course Withdrawals

If a student withdraws from a non-credit course before the first class meeting, all tuition and mandatory fees will be refunded.  Students who withdraw before the second class meeting will receive a 60% refund.  No refunds will be made after the second class meeting.
