Refund Policy

A $10 per semester service fee and any outstanding balance due to the College will be deducted from all refunds. No service fee is charged if the class is canceled by the College. Refunds are processed through College Fiscal Services, with checks being mailed directly to you. Refund request forms are available through the College of Marin Cashiering Services Office. For financial aid recipients, see below.

Responsibility for dropping classes in order to receive a refund rests solely upon the student. It is the student's responsibility to 1) verify an instructor has initiated a drop by the established deadline dates and 2) apply for a refund. Please note: Students who drop and add a class will be charged for the add beginning the third week of the term.

Enrollment, health, and class materials fees, and nonresident and international student tuition may be refundable for full term courses and short term courses, including summer sessions. See the Schedule of Important Dates for specific deadlines.

Nonresident tuition refunds for fall and spring are granted:

  • 100% refund through the second week.

  • The College cannot give refunds after the second week of instruction.

  • Nonresident tuition refunds for summer and short-term classes will be pro-rated accordingly.

If no materials have been used, the refund of materials fees will be granted through Friday of the second week of classes or, for short-term/summer session classes, before completion of 10% of the class.

For Closed or Canceled Classes

Refund Request Forms must be received in the Cashiering Services Offices not later than Friday of the second week of classes, or one week after the course has been canceled. Please allow approximately 8 weeks for refund processing.
