Refunds

All students who officially withdraw from their college or individual classes may receive a refund based on the MCCCD Official Refund Schedule. Deadlines that fall on a weekend or a college holiday will advance to the next college workday.

Refunds for students receiving federal financial assistance are subject to federal guidelines.

All refunds and deposits that may be due to a student will first be applied to debts that the student owes the college. Course fees are refundable only if the student qualifies for a 100% refund.

When federal financial aid is used to pay for tuition fees, the refund may be returned to the federal fund and not to the student.

Please Note: Stopping payment on your check payment does not constitute official withdrawal, and will result in additional fees and collection costs

How to Obtain a Refund

You must officially drop or withdraw from classes during the appropriate refund period in order to be eligible for a refund. View the refund schedule here. You can do this online via your Online Student Center or in-person at your college’s Admissions, Records and Registration Office.

Once you have officially dropped or withdrawn from classes and if you are eligible for a refund, you must contact Student Financial Services at your college to receive your refund.

If you paid in Cash, Check or through the Payment Plan

Request your refund via phone by calling (480) 731-8800 or in-person at your college’s Student Financial Services. The refund will be processed through the Maricopa Student Refund Program (MSRP).
