Cancellations, Withdrawals & Refunds

A notice of cancellation shall be in writing and submitted to the Registrar. The notice to cancel the Enrollment Agreement will be considered effective no later than the date it is received by the Registrar.
Withdrawal — A student who wishes to permanently withdraw from the CJC must file a Withdrawal Form with the Registrar. Withdrawal Forms are available from the Registrar in the Main Office. The notice to permanently withdraw will be considered effective no later than the date it is received by the Registrar. Permanent withdrawal may be effectuated by a student’s written notice or by a student’s conduct, including, but not necessarily limited to, a student’s lack of attendance (see under Code of Conduct and Attendance).
All financial and academic penalties apply as of the date the notice to permanently withdraw is received by the Registrar (see under Refunds below, and Adding, Dropping and Withdrawing from Courses). Exceptions may be made for family or medical emergencies with valid documentation Please note: Students who have permanently withdrawn and subsequently wish to return to the CJC must reapply for admission as a new student (see under Admission Requirements).
Refunds — New students who cancel the Enrollment Agreement within the aforementioned timeframe may obtain a 100 percent refund of charges paid less the Application Fee ($100), Registration Fee ($50) and Enrollment Deposit ($100). Returning students who cancel the Enrollment Agreement within the aforementioned timeframe may obtain a 100 percent refund of charges paid less the Registration Fee ($50) and Enrollment Deposit ($200).
Refunds for students who withdraw during a period of attendance are calculated as follows: Students who have completed 60 percent or less of the period of attendance shall receive a refund calculated on a pro rata basis. Refunds shall be calculated based on the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program completed as of the date of receipt of the notice of cancellation or withdrawal.
A pro rata refund shall be no less than the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program provided subtracted from the amount paid by the student, calculated as follows: The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
Please note: A student who has been enrolled for more than nine weeks (60 percent of the term) is not eligible for a refund.
The CJC shall issue or credit refunds within 45 calendar days of a student’s cancellation, withdrawal or completion of the program.
Upon a student’s failure to pay a debt owed to the CJC, permission to register for the forthcoming semester may be withheld. The CJC also reserves the right to withhold a student’s transcript until the debt and all costs associated with collecting it are paid in full.
