Refund Guidelines

General Refund Guidelines

People using calculator.

Refund guidelines ensure the timely and responsive delivery of student account refunds resulting from a direct payment on a student's account by cash, check or credit card that exceeds the total charges on the account.

Note: these guidelines do not apply to financial aid students.

Refunds of credit balances exceeding $1.00 will be processed automatically, after the third week of instruction.

Refunds for dropped classes are issued automatically at the end of the fourth week of the semester.

Refunds are issued in one of the following ways:

  1. Credited back to the credit card that the original payment was made with.
  2. Issued by check (sent to the student's address as posted at MyTMCC's Student Center).
  3. By direct deposit.

Errors: On rare occasions, errors are made on refund checks. The College has the right to reclaim these funds. In this case, a stop payment will be placed on the check, and the student will be notified. If the check has already been cashed, a written request will be made requesting the return of funds. If repayment is not received within 30 days, collection efforts will begin.
