Tuition Refund Policy

All refunds require that students complete an official College Withdrawal form or Course Drop form. Students who officially withdraw from WMCC or drop an individual course by the end of the fourteenth calendar day of the semester receive a 100% refund of tuition, minus non-refundable fees. Students in classes that meet in a format shorter than the traditional semester (15-16 weeks) have seven calendar days from the designated start of the shorter semester to withdraw for a full refund. If the seventh or fourteenth calendar day falls on a weekend or holiday, the withdrawal refund date becomes the first business day following the weekend or holiday. An exception to this policy involves students in courses that meet for two weeks or fewer. These students must withdraw by the end of the first day of the class to get a 100% refund. The advanced tuition deposit is a non-refundable fee. All other fees are refundable. These include, but are not limited to, the comprehensive student services fee.

All Federal Title IV funds (i.e., Pell, SEOG, Perkins Loan) are prorated and refunded according to the rules and regulations mandated by the U.S. Department of Education.

Students registered for workshops through system divisions of Community Education or Center for Training and Business Development must withdraw in writing at least three days prior to the first workshop session to receive a full refund of tuition and fees.

In extenuating circumstances and on a case-by-case basis, the President or designee is authorized to offer students alternative compensation in the form of tuition credit or waiver. Tuition credit on a student account must be used within one calendar year from the date of authorization.
