Requests for exceptions because of extenuating circumstances such as illness or death must be submitted in writing to the Business Office.  An administrative committee will review the request, and the student will be notified as to whether or not an exception to the refund policy can be made.   The college will not refund fees originally paid by check until the check has successfully cleared the student’s bank.
