Refund Procedures

Drop/Withdrawal from College

 

Tuition and Mandatory Fees

Drops and withdrawal from college can be made through myBLINN or in person and are official at the time that the Office of Admissions and Records is notified. Students will have their tuition and mandatory fees refunded 100% before the first class date. After that time, students who drop or withdraw from classes will have their tuition and mandatory fees refunded according to the following schedule:

Tuition and fees paid directly to the institution by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship shall be refunded to the source rather than directly to the student. If a student who has a scholarship withdraws before the end of the semester, the scholarship is revoked and the student may be required to repay the scholarship fund.

Non-Mandatory Fees

Students who withdraw prior to the first day of class will have all non-mandatory fees refunded. Students who withdraw on or after the first day of class will be refunded as follows:

(1) The refund on room and board is proportional with no room refund after the eighth week.

(2) There is no refund on vehicle registration fee.

Return of Title IV Funds

Students who have received (or who are eligible to receive) federal financial aid (grants or loans), and who withdraw from all their classes, or who do not earn a passing grade in any class for the semester, are subject to a recalculation of their awards based on the amount of aid earned.  Any amounts of unearned federal financial aid received by the student will be returned by the college to the applicable federal student aid program(s) through a Return of Title IV Funds (R2T4) calculation process.  The return of these funds may result in the student owing a balance to Blinn College, and/or the federal government.  For more information about how this may affect financial aid recipients please view Blinn College’s R2T4 policy online.

Military Service

If a student withdraws because he or she is called to active military service, the College District, at the student’s option, shall refund the tuition and fees paid by the student for the semester in which the student withdraws. Education Code 54.006(f) Blinn College Board Policy FC(Legal)
