Tuition & Fees

Summer 2017

The College Affordability and Transparency Center is a helpful resource to assist prospective students in determining the affordability and value of higher education institutions. Students may use the College Scorecard to find comparative information in order to make informed decisions when choosing an institution. The information is based on different variables and can be confusing to interpret. UCC’s College Scorecard data reflects an economic period when students requested federal loan aid at a rate much higher than today (more loans leads to a higher cost of education). We believe the cost of education at UCC remains very competitive in serving our residents of Douglas County. Visit the College Affordability and Transparency Center.

Every effort is made to ensure accuracy of the information below. However, the college reserves the right to make changes without prior notice.

Credit Tuition Refunds
Students who withdraw from one or more UCC courses and who have complied with regulations governing withdrawals are entitled to certain refunds of tuition depending on the time of withdrawal. Refunds are limited to students who comply with withdrawal procedures. See Withdrawals in the college catalog. Full tuition is refunded if withdrawal is made by the end of the last working day the first week of fall, winter, spring and summer terms. For courses meeting less than 10 weeks the refund is prorated by the Registrar. No tuition refund will be made if withdrawal is made after these times.

Refunds in all cases are calculated from the date of application for a refund. It is not calculated from the date a student ceases to attend classes. The only exception is in an unusual case where delay occurred for reasons beyond the student’s control. Students will receive full tuition refunds for courses cancelled, when appropriate.

With the exception of students paying by credit card through Higher One, all refunds will be issued in the form of a check payable to the student, regardless of the original form of payment or who paid for the course. If a third party sponsored agreement is set up with the Finance Office, refunds will be issued in the form of check to a third party.

Refunds to students paying by credit card through Higher One will be credited back to the credit card.

Credit Fee Refunds
Full fees for credit classes shall be refunded if withdrawal is made during the first week of class. No fees shall be refunded if withdrawal is after the first week. Fee refunds in all cases are calculated from the date of the application for refund. They are not calculated from the date the student ceases to attend.
