Course Drop/Withdrawal Refund Policy

Student refunds are prorated based on the effective drop or withdrawal date, as determined by the Office of the Registrar, and the schedule that follows. Tuition and fees are not transferable to another academic term, nor are they reduced due to absence from class (approved or otherwise).

When a financial aid recipient withdraws from the college, the Corcoran must calculate the amount of federal financial aid earned by the student based on the withdrawal date. If the amount of federal funds disbursed to the student is more than the amount earned, the difference will be returned to the Title IV programs. Corcoran’s tuition refund policy is separate from the federal requirement to return unearned aid. If the amount returned on the student’s behalf is greater than the amount he/she would receive under the College’s refund policy, the student is responsible for immediate payment of the difference.

It is important for students to fully understand the financial consequences of their decision to withdraw. Students should consult with Corcoran’s Office of Financial Aid and upon withdrawal, must complete their financial aid exit counseling session. Please note that refund, repayment and withdrawal policies are subject to change without notice in order to comply with administrative and regulatory requirements.
