Refunds

Class Refunds
To receive a refund when dropping a class or classes, an Add/Drop Form must be completed and submitted to the Academic Records Office. The form is available online and in the Academic Records Office. The date the completed form is received by the Academic Records Office is used to determine refunds eligibility and/or final approval of the classes dropped.

Refunds to payments made by check will not be processed until 20 days have elapsed.

Students who never attend, or cease to attend a class they have enrolled in may be administratively withdrawn. Students may also be administratively withdrawn as a result of disciplinary procedures. Students may be financially responsible for charges incurred under these circumstances.

If State Tech cancels a class for any reason, students will receive a full refund for that class.

Students who drop class(es) will receive refunds according to the following schedule:

16-Week Class

  • 1st week of class: 100% Refund
  • 2nd week of class: No Refund

Any class not on a 16-week schedule will be prorated based on the above schedule.

Students may change sections of the same class with the approval of the instructor(s). There is no cost for changing sections during the same semester.

Students who switch from the classroom to a web-based class will be required to pay the additional cost for web-based classes.
