Refund/Repayment Policy

The College is required to use Federal software to calculate refunds for students withdrawing before the 60% point in the semester. Students who officially withdraw from a class during the first seven (7) calendar days of the semester (based on the schedule for day program) receive a 60% refund of tuition for that class; a 35% refund during the second seven (7) calendar days; a 25% refund during the third seven (7) calendar days. No refund will be isssued after the twenty-first (21) calendar day of the semester. Catawba College will credit any refund amount due the student to the student's account if the student also owes a repayment or owes unpaid charges to the institution.

In summer terms, students who officially withdraw from a class before 10:00 a.m. of the second class day of the term receive a 100% tuition refund and before 10:00 a.m. of the third class day of the term a 75% refund. No refund will be given after 10:00 a.m. the third class day of the summer term. The date of withdrawal is considered as the formal date on the withdrawal form.

To withdraw from a class, students must go to the Registrar's Office and complete the necessary form. If further assistance is required, please contact Dr. Kasias, Director of the Graduate Program (704-637-4462 or 4461) or the School of Evening and Graduate Studies (704-637-4772). If the student fails to formally withdraw from the institution, then the date of withdrawal is considered to be the last documented date of attendance.
