TA Refund Policy

Clovis Community College returns unearned military tuition assistance on a proportional basis through at least the 60% portion of the term for which they were provided regardless of the reason for withdrawal (service-related or otherwise).  Any unearned TA funds will be returned directly to the military service, not to the service member.

CCC will work with the service members that stop attending due to a military service obligation in identifying solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.

Military tuition assistance is awarded based on students completing the entire term it was awarded.  When a student withdraws, they may no longer be eligible for the full amount.

Tuition Assistance eligibility will be recalculated for students who officially withdraw from the course prior to completing 60% of the enrollment period.  Recalculation of eligibility is based on the percentage of TA benefits earned using the following formula:

                                Number of days completed/Number of days in term = percent earned

CCC will return any unearned TA funds, and the student will owe CCC the amount that was returned.

Based on the published academic calendar, students receive a 100% refund if they drop/withdraw from a Spring class by  the following dates:

  • 16 Week Term - January 30, 2024
  • 1st 8 Week Term - January 22, 2024
  • 2nd 8 Week Term - March 15, 2024
