Policy for Credit Courses

Withdrawal from a course prior to the first class meeting will result in a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees. For a withdrawal after the first class meeting, tuition and fees will be refunded based on the refund table below.
Students must withdraw in EaglesEye or submit a change of enrollment form to the Student Records Office officially withdrawing from any course. The effective date of the change is the date the form is received by the Student Records Office or the date the online withdrawal was processed. Graduation fees are nonrefundable.
Complete withdrawals will be processed for refunds as soon as possible. Students may expect to receive refund checks approximately four to six weeks after withdrawal from the college. No cash refunds will be issued.
This table is based on calendar days, including the first day of class, not on the number of course sessions.

Return of Title IV Funds for Federal Financial Aid Recipients

This policy applies to students who have been awarded assistance through the Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, Federal Loan, or Federal PLUS Loan programs. For these students, this policy overrides the LCCC Refund Policy that is outlined above.
Federal financial aid is intended to help with education related expenses for an entire term. Students who withdraw, drop out, are expelled, or are administratively withdrawn after the beginning of classes will be subject to the federal refund policy.
In addition, students may be required to repay a portion or all the assistance they received. Funds from refunds and repayments will be returned to the government in the following order as required by federal regulations: unsubsidized Federal Loan, subsidized Federal Loan, Federal PLUS Loan, Federal Pell Grant, or Federal SEOG. Examples of Return of Title IV Funds repayment calculations are available upon request at the Financial Aid Office.
