Refund Policies

Withdrawing from Class

Students may withdraw from a class at any time from the first day of the quarter through the 9th week of the quarter. Tuition will not be charged for any class the student withdraws from within the first two weeks of school. After the first two weeks of school, tuition adjustments for individual classes will not be given. To withdraw from a class or completely withdraw from the school, please contact your academic officer. In addition, students may be administratively withdrawn for attendance. Please see the attendance policy for more information. 

Federal Return of Funds Policy 

Upon determination that you have withdrawn, the College must calculate, using a Department of Education formula based on the actual number of days in the enrollment period and your last date of attendance, the actual amount of financial aid earned by you for the time you were in school for the quarter. If the withdrawal occurs before 60% of the quarter is completed, any unearned funds must be returned as required by the Department of Education. This policy can result in you owing the College for tuition that was not covered by financial aid and/or owing the Department of Education for funds received by you that were not earned. If you are determined to be in an over-awarded position, you may become ineligible for future Title IV financial aid until such time as the over-award has been resolved. 

Once you have attended at least 60% of the quarter, you are considered to have earned all the financial aid for that quarter. If the College's Institutional Refund Policy creates a credit balance after the 60% point, those funds are returned as mandated by the Department of Education in 34 CFR 662.22(I). Loans and grants affected by this policy are as follows:
  • Unsubsidized Direct Loans (other than Direct PLUS Loans)
  • Subsidized Direct Loans
  • Direct PLUS Loans
  • Federal Pell Grants (for which a return is required)
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) (for which a return is required)
  • Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant (for which a return is required)
  • State Funds
  • Third Party Funds

Additional information or clarification of this policy may found by contacting the financial aid office.

Institutional Refund Policy

At Huntington Junior College, you pay only for the period of time that you are enrolled in school. If you are withdrawn from school, your tuition charges will be prorated on a daily basis through 60% of the quarter. This is approximately the seventh week of school. This calculation is based on your actual last date of attendance in class for that quarter.
