Payment, Refund and Withdrawal Information for Registration

Student schedules may be changed during WebAdvisor Registration. Also, beginning the first day of every semester (Fall/Spring), there is a two-day period in which students can register late and drop/add courses. During Summer term there is a one-day period in which students can register late and drop/add courses. WebAdvisor Support will be available at North and South campuses to assist you with schedule changes during the schedule change dates shown above.

If you fail to pay tuition and fees or to process completion of financial aid and/or scholarship paperwork, or third-party billings by the dates designated, your schedule will be deleted.
If you fail to pay tuition and fees or to process completion of financial aid and/or scholarship paperwork, or third-party billings by the dates designated, your schedule will be deleted. Non-payment of tuition and fees for the semester could result in limited availability of the courses you need to complete your program in a timely manner.

If you decide not to attend:

Keep in mind that if you do not plan to attend your classes, you must drop yourself through webadvisor or by submitting the Online Withdrawal Form.  Any student registered for any class as of the first day of the semester, will be responsible for 25% of tuition, even if you have not entered the class(es).

Tuition and Student Fees

Refund Deadlines

You will incur a penalty for dropping and/or adding. To avoid this 25% penalty, if you do plan to drop and add a course, both must take place within the same transaction. This penalty is the responsibility of the student and must be paid. Please make every attempt to make changes to your schedule only once and within the same time session so as not to incur additional charges to your account.

Refund policy

North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges sets the guidelines for which refunds may be issued. Refunds are automatically processed based on deadlines and drop dates.

  • A 100% refund shall be made if the student drops the class prior to the first day of the semester.
  • A 75% refund shall be made if the student drops the class on or after the first day of the semester and prior to or on the official 10 percent point of the semester as published in the academic calendar. Refunds will not be made after this date.
  • Refunds will not be granted after the official 10 percent point of the semester, as published in the academic calendar.
  • A Drop/Add/Withdrawal Notice must be presented to Student Services by the student if a refund is requested.
  • Deadline for refunds

Withdrawal from Classes

The student is responsible for initiating the withdrawal process. If students withdraw from a class after the end of the drop/add period and before the 65% point in the class, they will receive a grade of “W.” For more information, view the one stop articles on withdrawal and withdrawal dates.
