If a student drops during any of the refund periods, the student still has to pay the $45.00 nonrefundable processing fee. If the student does not pay the $45.00 fee, a hold will be placed on the student’s record. A hold will prohibit the student from receiving grades, future registration at COM or the release of student records for any purpose.

**Please note, beginning Fall 2024, the $45.00 processing fee will no longer be assessed.

Refunds are calculated according to the number of semester days as directed by state law. Notice class days indicated below refer to semester class days.
