The college refund policy is subject to change if required by federal regulation or the UA Board of Trustees. Appeals of the refund policy must be submitted in writing to the UACCB Administrative Cabinet.

Members of the military who receive orders which transfer them out of the area for a prolonged period or members of the National Guard or Reserves who are called to active duty, when such transfer interferes with class attendance, may request a full refund of tuition at any time during the semester. Documentation of orders for transfer must be provided prior to refund being granted. The College has a proration refund policy for students receiving VA benefits. Students receiving VA benefits must request that the prorated refund policy be used for tuition reimbursement.

The college will follow the refund policy for “five or six week sessions” when the summer or special term is more than four weeks but less than five weeks. Class days are identified on the academic calendar.

Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal. The appropriate withdrawal process must be followed. Failure to withdraw from classes appropriately may result in owing the college and/or federal government repayment of federal funds.
