Refunds for Credit Courses

Refunds for Credit Courses

Complete Withdrawal of Students Who Are Title IV Recipients


Recipients of Federal Title IV student financial assistance funds (Pell Grants, SEOG, Federal Direct Stafford and Plus Loans) who completely withdraw from the College during a semester may be required to repay a portion of the funds that are determined to be unearned. The calculation of earned vs. unearned funds is based directly on the portion of the semester the student attended before totally withdrawing. This calculation is not related to the College’s tuition refund policy. It is in addition to the College’s Refund policy and is required by Federal Title IV regulations.

Financial Aid Applicants

Students who apply for Federal Student Aid, and are awarded by the published tuition/fee due date and who maintain financial aid eligibility will have their tuition deducted from their financial aid.

Students who are not awarded by the published fee due date and have not paid their tuition will automatically be billed on a monthly basis, and incur finance and late charges consistent with College policy. When federal aid is awarded and applied to their account, finance and late charges will be reduced as appropriate and any remaining balance due may be paid by assistance credited to the student’s account. Credit balances will be processed in accordance with preferences selected using your OCCC debit card at www.occcdebitcard.com. Payments made by credit card will be refunded to the credit card. Balances due after financial assistance is applied are the responsibility of the student.

Students who are awarded state, College and/or federal aid insufficient to cover their charges in full are responsible for the remaining balance due after their award(s) are credited to their account. They will be billed monthly and incur appropriate finance and late charges calculated on the remaining balance.
Students must withdraw from any classes in which they no longer wish to remain enrolled prior to the tuition/fees due date in order to avoid billing, finance charges, and the potential posting of failing grades.

STUDENTS WILL NOT BE DROPPED FROM CURRENT CLASSES FOR NON-PAYMENT OF CURRENT TUITION/FEES.

Students who withdraw from classes during the official refund period will be refunded for tuition/fees they may have paid. All refunds for credit students, including financial aid, will be processed in accordance with preferences selected using your OCCC debit card at www.occcdebitcard.com. Payments made by credit card will be refunded to the credit card.

Non-Credit Professional Development Institute Classes

Participants enrolled in non-credit professional development institute classes, workshops, seminars or other activities offered by who officially withdraw before the scheduled starting time will receive a 100% refund. To officially withdraw, students must contact Professional Development Institute at (405) 682-7562. Participants who fail to officially withdraw will be billed.

Non-Credit Recreation and Fitness Classes

Full refunds will be granted to non-credit Recreation and Fitness students who officially withdraw prior to the first class meeting. No refunds will be provided once the class has begun, unless the class is canceled. To officially withdraw, a non-credit student must contact the Office of Recreation and Fitness at (405) 682-7860, or they will be billed for the class.

Refunds for Schedule Changes or Complete Withdrawals

If you choose to make changes to your schedule or completely withdraw from all your classes during the first two weeks of a 16-week class, OR the first week of a four, six or eight-week class, you will not be charged for your changes and will receive a refund of tuition/fees only.
