Short-term Courses

Students who withdraw from short-term course (less than 15 weeks in length) will on written notification to the NIC Registrar Office at the time of withdrawal, receive refunds as follows:

  1. If withdrawal is made within 5 days of the class starting, 100% will be refunded.
  2. No refund will be allowed after the 5th day.

Should a class be canceled, students will receive a full refund for the class, provided the student's enrollment drops below eight credits.

Note
You must apply for a refund in writing and submit it to the Student Accounts Office. Refund forms are available at the Students Accounts Office or on our forms page. Refund checks will be processed in approximately 10 business days.

All tuition and fees are refunded if a course is canceled and a replacement class is not chosen.

Fees which are non-refundable include but are not limited to:

  • Application Fee
  • Deposit Fee
  • Payment Plan Fee
  • Late Payment Fee 
  • Re-enrollment Fee
  • Bad Check Fee

If a student has a credit balance and a parent loan is applied to their student account, the credit will be refunded to the parent, up to the parent loan amount, and the remainder will be refunded to the student. If a parent wishes to request their funds released to the student, written instructions must be submitted to the Business Office.

When a student’s balance is being paid by a third party (Military, Tuition Management Systems, Employers, Vocational Rehabilitation, etc.), students will not receive any money they paid until the third party pays in full.

If payment was made by credit card and a credit balance arises, credit will first be returned to the credit card account, up to the amount paid on the credit card, before any excess is refunded by check.
