Refund Policy Exceptions

Requests for exceptions to the refund policy must be submitted within 90 days from the end of the semester for which the student is applying for. Application fees and lab fees are non-refundable.

Exceptions to the refund policy may be granted for the following:

  • Verifiable error on the part of TMCC
  • Verifiable incapacity, illness or injury which prevents the student from returning to school for the remainder of the semester
  • Death of the student or a spouse, child, parent or legal guardian of the student
  • Deployment of the student into the U.S. Armed Forces
  • Involuntary job transfer out of the service area of TMCC (50 miles) or change in work schedule

Note: Documentation must be submitted with the required Refund Policy Exception Request form.

If the student has not withdrawn online and received a grade of "W" for the class(es), no exception to the refund policy will be approved after the end of the semester for which the student is applying. Additionally, refunds (beyond the published deadlines) will not be considered for:

  • Not attending the first class
  • Not verifying enrollment status after the use of MyTMCC (instructor administrative withdrawals do not automatically remove charges)
  • Reasons that are beyond the control of the College (voluntary job transfers, voluntary changes in work schedule, etc.)

When an exception to the refund policy request is approved:

  • The class(es) will be removed entirely from the student's records if the student never attended any class sessions.
  • The class(es) will remain on the student's records with a grade of "W" if the student attended at least one class session.
