600.128 REFUND POLICY

The Wenatchee Valley College Board of Trustees authorizes cashiers to refund fees when a student withdraws from college or course(s) and to determine a pro-rated refund for courses with varying start and end dates. The chief academic officer and chief financial officer have the authority to make judgments regarding refunds in extraordinary circumstances. A student who is requested to withdraw for disciplinary reasons will not be eligible for a refund. Refund provisions for students receiving Title IV federal aid will comply with Title IV requirements.

Refunds are granted only when a student withdraws. Students are responsible for dropping classes they are not attending.
