Refund Policies

 

Credit Courses - Fall and Spring Semesters

  • If tuition has been paid by cash, check or credit card, you may be entitled to a refund if you withdraw from a course in a timely manner (see below for the appropriate process).
  • The date on which these forms are received by the appropriate office (as indicated on the form) is the date that the withdrawal is effective.  The college is not responsible for postal delays or errors and strongly encourages students to confirm that their paperwork has been received.
  • A verbal notice by a student to an instructor, advisor, or any FLCC staff member does not constitute a formal course withdrawal or drop.
  • Lack of attendance does not reduce tuition and fees; therefore, timely withdrawals or drops slips will ensure proper credit to your student account.
  • NO REFUND SHALL BE GIVEN FOR FEES OR PRE-ADMISSIONS (TUITION) DEPOSIT ONCE THE SEMSTER BEGINS.

Refund Policy for Students Receiving Federal Financial Aid Awards

Federal regulations (the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, regulation 34 CFR part 668.22) require each school to have a written policy for the refund and repayment of Federal Title IV aid received by students who withdraw during a term for which Title IV aid payment has been received. These policies are effective only if the student completely terminates enrollment (i.e., cancels his/her registration, withdraws, or is dismissed) or stops attending classes before completing more than 60 percent of the enrollment period. Therefore, attendance through more than 60% of the enrollment period is required to keep established Federal and State financial aid intact. Non-attendance may result in a financial obligationPlease refer to the College Catalog or contact the Student Accounts office for details and more information.
