Tuition, Fees, and Refunds
Payment of Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fee information is printed each term in the quarterly course schedule. Students are required to pay tuition and fees in full by the designated date.
Excess Credit Surcharge Exceptions For Students Enrolled in Vocational Programs
1. If the student’s schedule includes ONLY required courses and the total number of credits scheduled exceeds 18, there is no excess credit surcharge.
2. If the student’s schedule includes any elective courses and the total number of scheduled credits exceeds 18, there is an excess credit fee penalty for the number of credits in excess of 18.
3. Students must pay surcharges for developmental and prerequisite courses not required in the official program curriculum, if the total credits enrolled exceeds 18.
Failure to Meet Financial Obligations
Failure to make payment on any outstanding balance may result in your account being referred to an outside collection agency. You will be responsible for all collection and legal fees per Washington State Law. Release of academic transcripts, degrees and certificates will be withheld and future registrations may also be blocked .
If a student questions the accuracy of the claimed indebtedness, an informal hearing from the department administrator may be requested.
The complete refund policy can be found under Refunds, Student Tuition and Fees in the Grays Harbor College Board Policies and Administrative Procedures Manual.
Students requesting refunds must obtain either a total withdrawal form (withdrawing from all classes) from the Counseling Office or an add/drop form (for partial withdrawal) from the Admissions and Records Office. The date the student submits the completed form to the Records Office is the official date of withdrawal and is the date used in determining the rate at which refunds will be made. Students who leave the college without completing the official withdrawal procedure forfeit all claims for refunds and for credit in courses.
