Refunds.

Tuition and fees (except those which are nonrefundable) will be refunded if complete or partial withdrawal from classes is accomplished within the first twenty calendar days of the regular college quarter following the beginning day of the quarter.
Refunds, except for self-support programs, e.g., continuing education, intensive English courses, will be made in accordance with the schedule below, subject to an administrative fee. In those instances where the fee subject to refund is less than the administrative fee, the minimum forfeiture will be reduced to that amount. No charge is made for dropping classes when no refund is involved. At least two weeks must elapse between payment and refund of fees.
International students who attend a college within the Seattle College District on an International Student Visa and make advance payments must be enrolled at the college in the quarter for which they are requesting a refund and must provide documentation establishing extenuating circumstances, such as visa denial or medical reasons.
Refunds of financial aid recipients will be refunded to the appropriate financial aid account as required by federal and state regulations, including those students who are dismissed for disciplinary reasons.
