North Central Refund Policy

Under specific conditions, North Central Michigan College grants refunds for tuition and course fees to students who officially withdraw from the College or reduce credit hours. If the student receives assistance from College funds or other sources managed by College, the refund is returned to the appropiate scholarship or grant fund. Refunds for a student with a Guaranteed Student Loan who withdraws from the College will be sent to the student's lending institution. If North Central cancels a course, 100 percent of the tuition and fees will be refunded.

Refunds will be made according to the following schedule:
