Curriculum Refund Policy
Refunds shall be in accordance with the North Carolina Administrative Code and will be made only under the following circumstances:
A 100 percent tuition refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to the first day of the academic semester as noted in the Academic Calendar. Also, a student is eligible for a 100 percent refund if the class in which the student is officially registered fails to "make" due to insufficient enrollment. A 75 percent tuition refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the official 10 percent point of the semester.
For fast track classes (classes beginning at times other than the first week or seven calendar days of the semester), a 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to the first class meeting. A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the official 10 percent point of the course.
Technology, activity, CAPS, digital textbooks, science kits, and any course specific fees are non-refundable once the semester begins.
A 100 percent refund for tuition and related fees will be given for any class that is canceled by the college.
Military Tuition and Fees
If a student withdraws due to military obligations that make it impossible to complete
any courses in which s/he is enrolled, the College will reimburse the designated Tuition
Assistance processing center one hundred (100) percent of the tuition.
Pursuant to 1E SBCCC 900.4 Military Refund, tuition and registration fees are refundable for any military student who may be called to an active duty assignment which prevents them from completing course requirements.
To request a refund, please contact the Registrar’s Office and provide documentation of deployment at email@example.com.
If you are using Tuition Assistance (TA) to pay for your education and drop or withdraw from a course prior to completing 60 percent of the course, the Department of Defense requires that JCC return any unearned TA funds to the department based on how much of the course you completed. You may owe a portion of your tuition to JCC for the unearned funds.
In cases where some or all of the Tuition Assistance (TA) must be returned to the military, you will be responsible for all balances on your JCC student account.
Before dropping or withdrawing from a course, please contact your military education counselor or education services officer to determine how it could impact your Military Tuition Assistance and potential repayment obligations.
Death of a Student
In the event of a student’s death (prior to or on the last day of examinations), having paid the required tuition for a semester, all tuition and fees for that semester may be refunded to the estate of the deceased.
To comply with applicable federal regulations regarding refunds, federal regulations shall supersede the state refund regulation stated in this rule.
Refunds are automatically processed based on drop dates and deadlines. They are only
issued after the 10 percent point of the semester as noted on the academic calendar.

Cost of Attendance
JCC’s cost of attendance is an estimate of educational expenses a student may incur
for a period of enrollment and sets the limit on the total aid a student may receive.
A student’s cost of attendance may include the following components: tuition and fees, books and supplies, food and housing (living expenses), miscellaneous personal expenses, professional fees, and transportation.
The cost of attendance for a student enrolled less than half-time may include tuition and fees, books and supplies, professional fees, and transportation.
A student’s cost of attendance budget may be adjusted upon request with proper documentation for dependent care expenses, disability related expenses, study abroad expenses, cooperative educational costs, and/or personal computer costs.
