Rio Salado will be closed Thursday, Nov. 28-Friday, Nov. 29, 2019, for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Students who officially withdraw from credit classes (in fall, spring, or summer) within the withdrawal deadlines listed below will receive a 100% refund for tuition, and class fees. Registration processing fees are non-refundable. Deadlines that fall on a weekend or a college holiday will advance to the next college workday except for classes fewer than 10 calendar days in length or as specified by the college. Calendar days include weekdays and weekends. Never attending is not an allowable refund exemption or an excuse of the debt incurred through registration.
Refunds for out-of-state students may also be subject to state law.

*Course fees will be refunded only if the student qualifies for a 100% refund. Debts owed to the college must be satisfied before any refunds are paid to the student. Refunds for students receiving federal financial assistance are subject to federal guidelines. Requests for exceptions to the refund policy must be filed within one year from the semester in which the course was taken.
When a class is canceled by the college, a 100% refund will be made.
Students who withdraw from classes after the refund date must submit a request for a refund to the Office of Admissions and Records. Requests for a total withdrawal from the college may result in a prorated refund of tuition, provided courses have not been completed. Please complete your request using the secured refund exception form online.
Refund Policy for Department of Defense Tuition Assistance Funds
Students who receive tuition assistance (TA) funds for a course or courses from the Department of Defense (DOD) may have a refund processed and returned to the student’s DOD branch of service in the following situations. Refer to individual colleges for withdrawal and refund processes.
A. Per Refund Exception D, a student who is called to active duty and assigned to a duty station, verifiable by a copy of the orders, will be allowed to withdraw, provided courses have not been completed. A 100% refund of TA funds will be issued to the student’s DOD branch of service.
B. A student who withdraws for reasons other than those outlined above within the first 60% of the period for which funds were received will have the proportional amount of unearned TA funds returned to the student’s DOD branch of service. Refer to individual colleges and DOD branch of service for potential student financial responsibility as a result of withdrawal.
