Withdrawal Procedures


To be entitled to a refund of tuition and fees, students on both the Wallace and Sparks Campuses must officially withdraw by initiating the online withdrawal form. Students can access the online withdrawal form here. A How to Video can be viewed here.

Partial Withdrawal

Students who do not completely withdraw from the College but drop a class during the regular drop and add period are refunded the difference in tuition and fees paid and tuition and fees applicable to the reduced number of hours, including fees appropriate to the classes dropped. No refund is due to a student who partially withdraws after the official drop and add period.

Students who have not attended class by the fifth class day of a term are removed from that class. Students who have not attended any classes by the fifth class day will have their registrations voided and will not be registered for that term. It is the student’s responsibility to attend class. If an emergency should occur, Wallace Campus students are to contact the Office of the Director of Enrollment Services/Registrar at 334-556-2468, and Sparks Campus students should contact the Student Affairs Office at 334-687-3543, Ext. 4282, prior to the fifth day of a term. Students at other College locations should contact the designated College official.

Steps for a Partial Withdrawal

  1. Meet with instructor(s) prior to initiating the online withdrawal form.
  2. Complete the online withdrawal form.  The login for the form is your GovNet login.
    • You may cancel the online request at any time prior to the instructor(s) approving the form, but you will not be able to do so once the instructor(s) approves the withdrawal.


Complete Withdrawal

Students who officially withdraw and have never attended any class(es) are refunded the total tuition and other refundable fees.

Refunds are calculated based on the following schedule:

Refund check(s) are made payable to the student and mailed to the student’s home address as recorded in the registration file. An administrative fee of 5% of tuition and other institutional charges are assessed for each withdrawal within the period beginning the first day of class and ending at the end of the third week of class. The total amount charged for this service will not exceed $100. Financial Aid students are subject to the Return of Unearned Aid, Responsibility of the Student policy.

Steps for Complete Withdrawal

  2. Complete the online withdrawal form.  The login for the form is your GovNet login.
    • You may cancel the online request at any time prior to the instructor(s) approving the form, but you will not be able to do so once the instructor(s) approves the withdrawal.
    • If you have any outstanding debts with the LRC or the Business Office, you will be notified via email to pay those outstanding fees before you can return the next semester.

Ineligibility for Refund

Students who are withdrawn by the College for disciplinary reasons, non-payment of charges, or other similar reasons are not eligible for a refund.

Title IV Refunds

General
When a Pell, ACG, and/or SEOG grant recipient completely withdraws from the College, the Business Office must determine the amount of the grant(s) that the student earned as of the student’s withdrawal date.

The student’s date of withdrawal is either of the following dates:

  1. The date, as determined by the College, that the student began the withdrawal process prescribed by the College.
  2. The date, as determined by the College, that the student otherwise provided official notification to the College, in writing or verbally, of his or her intent to withdraw.

Note: If the student ceases attendance without providing official notification to the College, the midpoint of the payment period or the last date of an academically related activity in which the student participated is used as the date of withdrawal.
