If your student account has a credit balance in excess of $15 due to an overpayment or a dropped or cancelled class, a refund will automatically be mailed to you within 30 days. Please make sure your mailing address is correct: in MyPCC, go to the home tab and click on My Profile. If you have a credit balance of less than $15, you can request a refund through the business office.
How are refunds issued?
Your refund method will depend on how your bill was paid.
- If your bill was paid with a check, we will issue a check in the student's name. Refunds from check payments are held for two weeks from the date of the original payment.
- If you paid by cash, we will issue a check in the student's name.
- If paid with a credit or debit card, the card used in the original payment will be credited.
Refunds are first applied to outstanding charges on the student account, even if payment is not yet due. For more information, see the Refund Policy.
Financial Aid Refunds
Financial aid refunds are disbursed electronically via the My Refunds program. Students must select a refund preference before the term begins. To select your refund preference, click the My Refunds link located in the Paying for College tab in MyPCC.
Removing Tuition Charges
Charges are applied to your student account when you register for a class. All of the charges associated with a class will be removed if you drop the class by the drop deadline. No charges will be removed if you drop after the drop deadline. To drop a Community Education class, please see the Community Education Guidelines and Policies regarding their Refund/Drop Policy.
If an extreme hardship prevented you from continuing your studies through the term, you may request a tuition credit by filing a petition with the college appeal committee. Your petition must be received by the filing deadline and all past due amounts must be paid before your petition will be considered.
