The census date for all classes can be found online through a students' CCD Connect account.

No refunds or financial credits are given after the census date or for courses concentrated into one week or less. Students receiving financial aid may have their aid adjusted and should check with the Financial Aid Office.

Students should receive refund through the BankMobile Disbursements refund process. In some cases, refund will be credited back to the same credit card that was used to pay tuition.  All enrolled students 17-years old and older will be mailed a refund selection kit. Upon the receipt of the kit, the student must select their refund preference. Students may select to have their refunds credited to their personal bank account or a BankMobile Vibe Account or may request a paper check.
