Student Accounts & Refunds

Financial Responsibility

A student assumes full responsibility for completing each course in which he or she has registered and remains in after the refund deadline. If a student wishes to drop a course, it is the student's responsibility to do so at MyCCC or by using the Online Drop Form.  A list of drop/withdrawal deadlines may be located at the online Academic Calendar and on the student's "Student Class Program (Web Schedule Bill)" in MyCCC.

For 8-week online classes, students who submit a drop request on or before the Friday of the first week of the class will be eligible for a 100% refund of fees. Withdrawals made after this date still obligate the student to all tuition costs.

Refunds and Tuition Assistance

Returns of unearned funds are made in compliance with existing DoD or military contract regulations.  Unless specified otherwise by contract, if a student stops attending during the first 10% of the course, they will not be obligated for tuition/fees and their TA will not be billed.  If a student stops attending after 10% but before 60% of the course has passed, and TA was used, the college will return to the government 10% of the total tuition paid by TA.  The student will be obligated to pay Coastline for the amount refunded to the government.  If a student withdraws due to a military service obligation, proof of the obligation must be submitted to milreg@coastline.edu so that the student and military can be granted a full refund of fees (subject to review).  If a student cancels Tuition Assistance but remains in the course after the first 10%, then he or she becomes financially obligated for all tuition/fees due to Coastline.

Obtaining a Refund

Refunds are issued weekly for all balances due to the student. Students can check the status of their refund by logging into MyCCC. The form of refund will depend on the method of original payment.

  • Payments made through MyCCC by credit card will continue to be refunded back to that credit card.   
  • Monies and financial aid disbursements that we are unable to refund to a credit card - including cash, check and payment deferral form payments - are issued through our new partner, Higher One, to each student’s My Coast Colleges Card.
