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 term or class to avoid tuition/fee assessment. Students who withdraw from NICC or drop a course may be eligible for a tuition and course fee refund.

Tuition and course fee refunds will not be issued to students based on non-attendance. Tuition and course fee refunds 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.
