Tuition Refunds

To receive a tuition refund for credit courses students must formally drop the class between the time of registration and the drop with a refund deadline described below:

  1. One-day classes: the day prior to the first day of class;
  2. Two-day classes: the day prior to the second day of class;
  3. Three-day classes: the day prior to the second day of class;
  4. Four- and five-day classes: the day prior to the second day of class;
  5. Less than full-term classes that meet for five (5) or more weeks: prior to date by which 20% of class meetings have occurred;
  6. Full-term classes: the Monday of the second week of the term.

Definition of a week is Monday 12:00 a.m. through Sunday 11:59 p.m. Refunds will be for 100 percent of the tuition only paid for the class.

For classes cancelled by the college, a full refund will be issued or the student may enroll in another class.

Students on wait lists who have not been registered into the class by the end of the first week of the term will be removed from the wait list and any refund will be credited to their account.

Students dropped by instructors by Involuntary Withdrawal (AR 7035-03) for non-attendance during the refund period will have any eligible refund credited to their account.

Students who are members of the military and ordered to active duty will be allowed to receive a full refund, or a tuition and fees credit for courses that they are unable to complete by their activation date or are ineligible for an incomplete grade [ORS 341.531; ORS 341.532]. Financial aid and other third party educational benefits will be lawfully reassessed based on Department of Education and/or Veterans Administration rules. The student may be required to return some of the aid to LBCC pursuant to state or federal aid rules.

Students may receive full or partial tuition refunds or credit for paid tuition and fees should the college be required to cancel classes as the result of a natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, or a pandemic. The college will decide how and when to reimburse students dependent on the timing, severity, and impact of the event.
