Tuition Refund Policy

Students who wish to cancel their registration or drop a course must notify the Student Services Office before the first day of the semester or class to avoid tuition/fees assessment. Students who withdraw from NICC or drop a course may be eligible for a refund/adjustment of their tuition and fees. Refunds/adjustments of tuition and fees will not be issued to students based on non-attendance. Refunds/adjustments of tuition and fees are calculated based on the start date of the course. Calendar days, less holidays and weekends, are used for calculations regardless of the number of class meetings.
