Things to remember about refunds:

  • You must officially drop a course to be eligible for a tuition refund.
  • If you register for a course but do not attend, you are still liable for tuition and fees are not refundable after the semester has started.
  • Refunds are determined by the start of the semester, not the day the course starts.
  • If you have not paid your bill and drop a course, your amount due will be adjusted by the
    refund percentage that corresponds to the date of your drop.

How to Officially Drop a Course

  • Before the semester starts, Log on to MyCollege, click on the "Student" tab, then select
    "Student & Financial Aid," then "Registration" and then "Add or Drop Classes."
  • After the semester starts, visit the Registrar's Office, SS105 to complete a drop/add form.

* Refund percentages for New York State community colleges are set by SUNY Regulation 602.11

Title IV Financial Aid Refund Policy

Students who receive Title IV financial assistance (Pell, SEOG, Perkins or Stafford Loans) are subject to the most recent guidelines mandated by the Higher Education Act Amendment. If-and only if-they officially withdraw or are administratively withdrawn from the institution, the unearned funds received for tuition, fees, and other educational expenses, must be returned to the Federal Title IV programs. This return may result in an outstanding balance due to Broome Community College and/or to the U.S. Department of Education. All other cases (e.g. partial withdrawals) will follow the N.Y.S. mandated refund policy for community colleges.

Students dropping any course less than 15 weeks in length will receive 75% refund only during the first week of the course. After that, there will be no refund.

Other Procedures

Students who defer tuition on Financial Aid and who then become ineligible to receive that aid or any portion of it will be subject to an immediate obligation for payment and/or collection of tuition, fees and disbursements. The College reserves the right to use whatever collection procedures it deems appropriate to satisfy any outstanding debt. The total outstanding debt may include additional costs incurred due to collection activities. The cost will vary depending on the debt. Additional costs may be as much as 33 1/3 percent of the debt plus attorney/court fees.

Withholding Diplomas and Transcripts

A student's Official College Transcript and diploma will be withheld if there are outstanding financial or property-returning obligations. These could be to such College offices as Security, Learning Resource Center (Library), Student Accounts, Physical Education, as well as others. Students must settle any such outstanding debts to the College and then present evidence of the settlement to the Office of the Registrar.
