Refund Policy

The Office of Continuing Education adheres strictly to the following refund policy:

Refunds are given either when QCC Continuing Education cancels classes or based on individual student requests. Tuition for canceled classes is refunded in full. A written request must be received by mail, fax or e-mail. Refund requests by telephone are not accepted.

Refunds are calculated from the date we receive your written request regardless of the date of registration. Requests received 7 days before the first session: student will receive a refund of 90% of tuition paid. Requests received before the second session: student will receive a refund of 75% of the course tuition. There will be no refund thereafter for any reason. Note: All refunds take approximately 2-3 weeks to process after the Office of Continuing Education receives your request and/or a class is canceled by our office.

  • Non attendance does not constitute a withdrawal or request for refund.

  • No cash refunds.

  • No refunds for classes which meet for only one or two sessions; or for classes after second meeting.

  • Multi-semester Programs will be refunded by the Tuition received minus the classes the student has taken (ie. the classes that remain at the time the student requested the refund).
