Refunds

Refund Procedure
When a student enrolls in a class at Tulsa Community College, he/she reserves a place which cannot be made available to another student until he/she officially withdraws from the class. Many students cannot enter Tulsa Community College each semester because classes are filled. Students processing a complete withdrawal prior to the first day of classes may receive a 100 percent refund, except for the application fee, ID fee, and/or international student status maintenance fee, TOP fees and deferred payment service fees. Refunds will not be honored unless all financial obligations to Tulsa Community College have been cleared.

Refund Policy

  • 100 percent refund for dropping all classes during the first two weeks of a regular semester, first week of a summer or eight-week mini-term or before the second class session of a course that is less than eight weeks in length. For courses shorter in duration than eight weeks, in order to receive a refund, the student must drop the class before 5 p.m. on the second day of class for Internet classes, or before 5 p.m. of the next regular work day for all other classes.
  • 0 percent refund for students withdrawing after the second week of a regular semester or after the first week of a summer or eight-week mini-term.

Refund Policy for Students Entering Military Service
If a student enters military service during the term in which he/she is enrolled and he/she has not completed sufficient work for receiving his/her grades, but is in good standing academically, Tulsa Community College will refund to the student the full amount of his/her fees paid. If a student enters military service during the term and is not in good academic standing at the time, the regular fee refund policy would apply. The student must forward a copy of the induction orders with a written request for a refund directed to the Refund of Tuition and Fees for Students with Hardship Circumstances Committee.
