All tuition and fees required of any student at Bevill State are due at the time of registration. A student is not officially registered until tuition and fees are paid or assumed by financial assistance.

Refund Policy

To request a refund, a Change/Withdrawal-Refund Request Form must be submitted to the Business Office. Refunds are issued by the Business Office on designated dates each term.

Partial Withdrawal During the Schedule Change Period A student who officially drops a course during the Schedule Change Period will be refunded the difference in tuition paid and the tuition rate applicable to the reduced number of hours, plus all refundable fees. After the Schedule Change Period, no refunds are issued for partial withdrawal.

Withdrawal from the College - Full Term*

A student who officially withdraws before the first day of class from all courses will be refunded the total tuition, plus refundable fees. 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.*

NOTE: Refunds for Truck Driver Training tuition and housing payments are calculated at the same rate as noted above. Refund policy for financial assistance recipients is outlined in the Financial Assistance section of this catalog.

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.
