Military Tuition Refund. Upon request of the student, each college shall:
Grant a full refund of tuition and fees to military reserve and National Guard personnel called to active duty or active duty personnel who have received temporary or permanent reassignments as a result of military operations then taking place outside the state of North Carolina that make it impossible for them to complete their course requirements; and
Other fees, such as parking fee, student activity fee, and malpractice insurance fees are non-refundable. If you drop all classes before the beginning of the semester the activity fee will automatically refund. The census date (10 percent point) of each class section may vary and may be obtained by visiting https://coursedrop.forsythtech.edu. No refunds will be given to students who drop a section after the census date of the section.
The college refund policy is established by state legislative action and therefore, is subject to change without prior notice to students.
It is very important that you ask questions, examine your schedule carefully, and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for your schedule!
- Check campus location where your classes are offered- be sure it is where you want to be.
- If you schedule classes on more than one campus– make sure you have time between classes to travel between campuses.
- If you need to DROP and ADD during the schedule adjustment period, you must do so in one registration session. That is the only way, your new class and your old class (if the number of credit hours is the same) will not result in you owing the additional money.
- Please make sure to ask questions and carefully examine your schedule. Failing to assume responsibility for your schedule could result in unwanted financial penalties.
- Important Notes:
Do not sign up for more classes than wanted with the intent to drop some after attending the first day of class.
Dropping on or after the first day of class will result in a 25% tuition refund penalty.
