Students dropping or withdrawing from classes must complete the appropriate form available in the Advising Center, Building 3, Room 219. Failure to withdraw officially results in a grade of "F" in the course and an obligation to Pay in Full. The schedule of refunds for tuition and general college fees outlined in this page applies only applies when a class has been dropped, as established by the Enrollment Services Center. Application fees and registration fees are non-refundable. Lack of attendance or course abandonment does not constitute a drop or withdrawal, and student will be responsible for the full balance.
The Refund Policy applies to tuition and fees for all students who register for one or more courses at RCC. This policy goes into effect on the first day of classes for each semester.
You may add or drop classes during the ADD/DROP period without charge. The official start and end dates of the ADD/DROP period can be found online (http://www.rcc.mass.edu/academics/academic-calendar) listed as “Last Day for Schedule Changes”.

Policy for Financial Aid Refunds
Roxbury Community College currently has multiple start dates for courses offered in both fall and spring semesters. Financial aid refunds are released via paper check as RCC does not offer a direct deposit option for students. In order to remain in compliance with federal regulations, RCC must release student refunds within 14 days of receipt of funds from the US Department of Education. Furthermore, if a financial aid refund is not received by the student within 10 business days from original generation of the financial aid refund the Business Office will mail out the checks via USPS postal service with the mailing address we currently have on file. Any returned check will be voided and funds will be sent back to the US Department of Education.
Before a student registers for classes, outstanding balances for prior terms must be paid in full. Fall charges should be paid in full by the first day of classes. Students with financial aid should pay their portion of the bill not covered by financial aid or make a payment plan. Organizations may be billed for tuition if authorization is presented on agency letterhead to justify billing at registration. The student must pay the portion of the charges not covered by the organization prior to the first day of classes.
