Payments for courses cancelled by the college will be refunded automatically. Refunds for a given term will begin processing after the published “Last Day to Drop for a Tuition Refund.” 

Note:

1) Dynamic Session classes have unique refund and withdrawal dates. Please contact the Enrollment Services Office for procedures and dates.

2) Credit card payments made via the college's website (Student information System) using the college’s on-line system (QuikPay) will be refunded to the cardholder.

3) On-campus payment refunds will be issued through a third party vendor. Tuition refunds will be issued electronically to either a prepaid debit card or direct deposit (ACH) to a bank account. For more information visit the Refund2Card - Electronic Disbursements page.

4) Community Education & Community Service students will be eligible for a refund for a course that is dropped prior to the first meeting of the course and for any course cancelled by the college.

Returned Checks / Credit Card Charge-backs

up arrow

When a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card charge back is returned to the college prior to the last day for a tuition refund, the student will automatically be removed from all affected classes.  A $35.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment for accounts not in past due collection status.   A period of ten (10) days will be allowed to satisfy the financial obligation prior to initiating the collection process.  A $50.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment when the student's account is in past due collection status.  Notice of these actions will be sent by U.S. Mail to the student.

To be eligible to attend classes, the student must register again prior to the last day to add or change classes as noted in the TCC Catalog  by presentation of a certified check, money order, MasterCard or Visa, or cash.

In addition, a “Prevent Check Presentation” service indicator will be placed on the student account for a minimum of two years.  If the returned check fee and total obligation is not paid in full by the required time the college will seek payment though the State of Virginia Department of Treasury and Collection agencies.

See policy on delinquent accounts (below)

POLICY ON DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS
up arrow

Students who incur a debt (delinquent account) with the college must satisfy that debt to remain in good standing with the college.  The college will follow procedures provided by the State CAPP Manual, the Virginia Community College System’s Policy Manual, and the TCC Financial Services Policy and Procedure Manual in pursuit of all delinquent accounts.

  

When a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card charge back is returned to the college after the last day for tuition refund, a $35.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment for accounts not in past due collection status.   A period of ten (10) days will be allowed to satisfy the financial obligation prior to initiating the collection process.  A $50.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment when the student's account is in past due collection status.  Notice of these actions will be sent by U.S. Mail to the student.

 

At 30 days past due, all delinquent accounts will be assessed a collection fee equal to 30% of the original debt. External resources include the Virginia Department of Taxation Set-off Debt system and Private Collection Agencies.

Students who maintain a debt to the college will not be permitted to register or to attend classes, and the college will not issue transcripts, certificates, or degrees, until all debts are paid in full to the college.
