Withdrawal Refund Policy

Official withdrawals from the College require that a formal withdrawal process be followed.  This includes the completion of an official Withdrawal form that requires authorizing signatures from the Academic Affairs, Financial Aid, Registrar's, and Business offices.  Contact the Business office at (270) 384-8011 for specific semester dates and refund amounts.  Students who withdraw are subject to the following tuition refund policy:

  • 100% before the second day of the semester.
  • On the second day of the semester and thereafter, tuition refunds are calculated by determining the percentage of instructional days the student will not be attending to the total number of instructional days in the semester. The student will receive a pro-rated refund, to the student account, based upon that percentage.
  • Should the official withdrawal date occur after 60% of the instructional days in the semester have been completed, no refunds will be granted. This policy applies to day, on-line,  AIM and Community Campus classes.
  • In determining the percentage of the payment period or period of enrollment completed for a student who withdraws from a program offered in modules, the school includes in the denominator (the total number of calendar days in the payment period or period of enrollment) all days within the period that the student was scheduled to complete prior to ceasing attendance.  If a student enrolled in two modules completes one module and drops the remaining module after ceasing attendance, the total number of calendar days in this student's payment period or period of enrollment would include the days in all three modules.  If the student drops the classes in the remaining module prior to ceasing attendance, the total number of calendar days in the student's payment period or period of enrollment would include only the days in the first module.

The official date for the calculation of "instructional days not attended" shall be the date on the official Withdrawal form presented to the Business office. 

The formula for the calculation is as follows:  Refund = Tuition Charged x (Days Not Attended in Semester/Total Days in Semester).

Note:   The percentage of instructional days not attended is the same percentage used in the calculation of refunds due to the Title IV programs.

Note:   Also see the following policies:  Transcript Records of Dropped Courses and Adding and/or Dropping a Course.
