All students who officially withdraw from the college or individual classes by the withdrawal process will receive a refund based on the MCCCD Official Refund Schedule. Deadlines that fall on a weekend or a college holiday will advance to the next college workday. (Course fees are refundable only if the student qualifies for a 100% refund)
Refunds for students receiving federal financial assistance are subject to federal guidelines.
ALL Refunds and deposits that may be due to a student will first be applied to debts that the student owes the college. When Federal Financial Aid is used to pay for tuition fees the refund may be returned to the Federal fund and not to the student.
NOTE: Stopping Payment on your check payment does not constitute official withdrawal, and will result in additional fees and collection costs.
How to Obtain a Refund
You must officially drop or withdraw from classes during the appropriate refund period in order to be eligible for a refund. View the refund schedule here.
Once a student has officially dropped or withdrawn from classes and is eligible for a refund they must contact Cashier Services to receive their refund (refunds are not automatically guaranteed or generated).
Proper Identification is required for all students seeking a refund. Proper identification consists of a picture ID - Valid driver's license or state identification card, current SCC student ID card, or similar.
If you paid in Cash, Check or through the Payment Plan
Apply by phone (480) 423-6148 or in person to request a refund through the Maricopa Student Refund Program (MSRP). Refunds are processed in the Cashier Office and sent to CITI for processing through MSRP. Students will receive an email to their student issued Google email notifying them that it is time to enroll or status of their refund. Student may select to receive their refund by either Prepaid Visa, EFT or paper check. If no refund option is selected, student will receive paper check mailed to student address in Student Center.
