How to Receive Your Refund

If you’re expecting to receive a refund check from CLC, please sign up for direct deposit.

Direct Deposit is:

  • Convenient: No waiting on the mail or in line at the bank to cash or deposit your check. 
  • Quick: Funds are generally available within a few days after the date of the refund.
  • Secure: Direct deposit prevents check loss or theft. The bank account information you enter is completely confidential.

How do I enroll in Direct Deposit?

View the ACH (Direct Deposit) Enrollment Instructions (PDF).

A full refund of tuition and fees is granted if the college cancels a class.

When academically advisable, the administration may approve full or partial refunds of tuition or fees when students exchange one course for another.

When a student is unable to attend class due to uncontrollable and unforeseen circumstances such as extended hospitalization, a prorated tuition and fee refund may be made based upon a documented appeal. The appeal form may be obtained at the Welcome and One Stop Center.
