After the Schedule Change Period, no refunds are issued for partial withdrawal.

A student who officially withdraws from the College (all courses) during the first seven calendar days of class (inclusive of Saturday and Sunday) will receive 75 percent of refundable tuition, plus refundable fees.* Students who officially withdraw from the College after the first seven calendar days after the beginning of the term and on or before the fourteenth calendar day after the beginning of the term will receive 50 percent of refundable tuition, plus all refundable fees. Students who officially withdraw from the College after the fourteenth calendar day after the beginning of the term and on or before the twenty-first calendar day after the beginning of the term will receive 25 percent of refundable tuition, plus all refundable fees.*

Withdrawal from the College Mini Term*
The refund policy for mini terms is a compressed version of the regular refund policy.

NOTE: A student who adds classes will be charged additional tuition and fees at the applicable rate.

Returned Check Policy

When a check for tuition and fees is returned, the Business Office will immediately notify the student. The student will be advised that if payment for tuition and fees is not made within five (5) days from the date of the notification, the student will be removed from all class rosters. There is a $30 fee for each returned check.

If the student fails to respond within five (5) days, the Business Office notifies the Office of Student Services to remove the student from all class rosters. The instructor of each course will be notified by the Office of Student Services of the College’s action to remove the student from his/her class roster. The student will not be allowed to re-enroll until all outstanding debts to the College are satisfied and will be placed on a cash-only basis. The instructor may not add a student to his/her class roster until he or she is notified to do so.


Delinquent Accounts

A student who has a delinquent account at the College for any fee or fine may not complete registration until his/her account has been satisfied. The Bevill State Community College may withhold transcripts and diplomas until all indebtedness is paid.

*A portion of the tuition is earmarked by the State Board of Education for retirement of debt and cannot be refunded. This non-refundable tuition is $37 for students taking 9 or more hours, $30 for students taking 6-8 hours, and $22 for students taking fewer than 6 hours.
