Tuition, Fees, and Refund Information
2016-2017 Tuition and Fees
RCW 28B.15.0681(5)(a) and (b) require that institutions of higher education provide:
(a) The sources of all institutional revenue received during the prior academic or fiscal year, including but not limited to state, federal, local, and private sources.
(b) The uses of tuition revenue collected during the prior academic or fiscal year by program category as determined by the office of financial management.
Students are required to pay tuition and fees in full by the designated date.
- If the student’s schedule includes ONLY required courses and the total number of credits scheduled exceeds 18, there is no excess credit surcharge.
- 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.
- Students must pay surcharges for developmental and prerequisite courses not required in the official program curriculum, if the total credits enrolled exceeds 18.
Students requesting refunds must obtain either a total withdrawal form (withdrawing from all classes) from the Student Support Center 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.
