Refund Policy

If a student drops during any of the refund periods, the student will still have to pay the $45 nonrefundable processing fee. If the student does not pay the $45 fee, a hold will be placed on the student's record. A hold will prohibit the student from receiving grades, future registration at COM or the release of student records for any purpose.

Refunds are calculated according to the number of semester days as directed by state law. Complete details are contained in the College Catalog.

Students who officially withdraw from the institution will have their refundable tuition and mandatory fees refunded according to the following schedule.
