Return Check Policy

Returned Check Fee

A $30.00 fee or 5% of the face amount, whichever is greater, is assessed for each check returned by a bank for non-payment. Check cashing privileges may be suspended if two or more checks are returned on an individual or agency and may result in “Cash Only” for future transactions. Nonpayment checks returned by banks could result in withdrawal from school along with processing to legal authorities for collection.


Refunds for Reduction of Class Loads

Refunds for reduction of class loads (dropping courses) by students must be prior to the completion of the drop/add period for any term. There are no refunds for course reductions (dropping classes) by the student after the drop/add period.

Financial Aid Students

Consult with Financial Aid First prior to dropping classes.
