When you register for any class (credit or noncredit), you assume a financial responsibility.  To be eligible for a refund, you must officially drop the course by the add/drop deadline. To do this, you may either file a drop/add form with Records and Registration or drop your class online through MyAACC. Refund deadlines are published in the schedule of classes and are also listed below.

If you stop attending a course but do not officially drop the course, you continue to be financially responsible for all tuition and fees and receive a failing grade.

Courses dropped prior to the refund deadline are eligible for a full refund. Students are provided a full refund when the college cancels a class.

Noncredit Classes

To be eligible for a refund for a noncredit course, you must officially drop the course before the first class. You can drop your class online through MyAACC or submit a completed drop/add form at Records and Registration.

Receiving your Refund

Refunds are generally issued and mailed approximately 15 days after a class is dropped or canceled. Refunds are issued in the form of checks unless 100% of your total refundable credit was originally paid with a credit card within the past 90 days. In that case, the refund is credited to your card.


Refund Deadlines

FOR Credit CLASSES SCHEDULED EIGHT WEEKS OR MORE

  • Students may drop the class for five calendar days after the date of the first scheduled class meeting and receive a full refund.
  • Students have five additional calendar days to withdraw from the class and receive a 60% reduction of the tuition, general student fees and lab fees charged for the class.
  • If a student withdraws more than 10 calendar days after the date of the first scheduled class meeting, no refunds will be issued.
  • For hybrid and online classes, the first day of the session is considered the first scheduled class meeting.

FOR CREDIT CLASSES SCHEDULED SEVEN WEEKS OR FEWER

  • Students may drop the class for two calendar days after the date of the first scheduled class meeting and receive a full refund. No refunds will be given after that date.
  • For hybrid and online classes, the first day of the session is considered the first scheduled class meeting.

Withdrawing from a Credit Class

If you cannot complete a credit class, you will need to officially “withdraw” to avoid a failing grade. To do this, you may either file a drop/add form with Records and Registration or drop your class online through MyAACC. An entry of "W" will appear on your record and you will continue to be financially responsible for the withdrawn class. You may withdraw up through the "last day to withdraw" listed in the schedule of classes and the academic calendar.

WITHDRAWING WITH FINANCIAL AID ASSISTANCE

If you have received a federal grant or loan and drop or withdraw from a course, you may owe a portion of the funds you received back to that federal program. For details, contact the Financial Aid Office at 410-777-2203.

WITHDRAWING AFTER THE deadline

If you wish to withdraw from a course and the last day to withdraw has passed, contact Advising for assistance.
