Refund Policy – School of Workforce Development and Continuing Education Non-credit Courses

Capital Community College reserves the right to cancel courses with insufficient enrollment. If a course you have registered for is cancelled, you will be notified by phone and have the option of receiving a full refund of fees or applying your course fee to another non-credit course in the same semester.

Refunds take at least 4 – 6 weeks.

No refunds are issued for non-credit courses unless you withdraw three (3) business days before the first class meeting, in writing or in person, to the Office of the School of Workforce & Continuing Education, Capital Community College, Room 316, 950 Main Street Hartford, CT 06103.  No telephone requests for refunds will be taken.

Refund Policy – Federal Title IV Student Aid Programs

In accordance with Federal regulations, financial aid eligibility will be recalculated for all Title IV*** recipients who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 61% of the semester.

The recalculation is based on the percent of earned aid using the following formula:

Percent earned = Number of days completed to the withdrawal date**** divided by days in the semester.

Federal financial aid is returned to the federal government based on the percent of unearned aid using the following formula:

Aid to be returned = (100% minus the percent earned) multiplied by the amount of aid disbursed toward institutional charges.

Samples of calculations are available upon request in the Financial Aid Office.

*** Title IV Aid includes Federal PELL Grant, FSEOG Grant, Federal Stafford Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized), and PLUS Loans.

**** Withdrawal Date is defined as the actual date the student began the college’s withdrawal process, the student’s last day of the recorded attendance, or the midpoint of the semester for a student who leaves without notifying the college.
