Tuition Refund Policy
Course tuition and fee refunds are issued per Wisconsin Technical College System policy.
Refund amounts are dependent on the class start date, class end date, and the date a student officially withdraws from class. Refund percentages are based on the time period between the class start and end dates and is not based on the number of class meetings that occurred or were attended or the coursework completed.
100% Refund – A student shall receive a 100% refund of course-related fees paid, if the withdrawal request is received prior to the first scheduled day of class. Students who have not previously paid will not owe any course-related tuition and fees.
80% Refund – A student shall receive an 80% refund of course-related fees paid, if the withdrawal request is received before or at the time 10% of the class has been completed. Students who have not previously paid will owe 20% of the course-related tuition and fees.
60% Refund – A student shall receive an 60% refund of course-related fees paid, if the withdrawal request is received after 10% but before or at the time 20% of the class has been completed. Students who have not previously paid will owe 40% of the course-related tuition and fees.
No refund is granted nor will course-related tuition and fees be reduced if the withdrawal request is received after 20% of the class has been completed.
Students who are no-shows or cease to attend without notifying the college of their request to withdraw are fully responsible for course tuition and fees.
A student may view exact refund dates for each of their classes by accessing their My Class Schedule through MyNTC and selecting the (MyNTC calendar icon) Academic Calendar Deadlines link.
Course Cancellation Refunds
A student shall receive a 100% refund or have charges removed of course-related fees for courses that are cancelled by the district.
