Refunds

Refund of Fees

Students who find it necessary to drop individual classes or withdraw from school will receive a refund if class(es) are dropped within 10 percent of the scheduled class time. The deadlines for your classes are listed in your myHancock portal, Select the "Fees and Balances" link and then select "View fees and deadlines".   

It is the students' responsibility to drop themselves from any courses they no longer want to attend within the refund deadline.

During the registration period of each term, registration refunds will be processed by request only (paper refund request form or online request).  After the first two weeks of instruction, refunds will be processed automatically. 

Our school delivers your refund with BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. Visit this link for more information: https://bankmobiledisbursements.com/refundchoices/.

Please do not stop payment on your check.  A stop payment on your check does not constitute an official drop from classes or a request to drop.  It will result in assessment of a $25 service charge for collection of the returned check. Any disputes placed on a valid credit card payment, will result in a hold on your student account and a $25 services charge.
