To Be Eligible For a Refund

​Students must officially withdraw from classes by the refund deadline. Each class may have different deadlines so refer to your Class Schedule (Web Schedule Bill) on your MyCoast portal page and also reference the Dates to Remember to ensure you know the right date for each course. It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from classes and to verify all withdrawals.

An instructor may drop students for non-attendance. Instructors are not responsible for making sure drops are made by the refund deadline. If the student has not been dropped from the class by the instructor, the student is responsible for withdrawing from the class by the refund deadline. Students who are officially enrolled in a class after the refund deadline will not be eligible for a refund. There are no exceptions.

Refund Processing

Refunds will be automatically processed every week beginning the first week of registration of the semester in which the fees were paid and each week thereafter until the end of the term. Refunds are not processed during the first two weeks of the fall and spring terms. Official withdrawals made in accordance with the refund policy and by the withdrawal deadline will generate a credit balance on the student account.
