Tuition Refund Policy

Students who withdraw from classes may be due a refund of their tuition and fees. Please check with the College Business Office regarding the status of your account. Full refund of tuition is usually allowed before classes start and during the first week of the semester. Financial aid funds will be paid based on the number of days enrolled. Withdrawing during the first nine weeks of the semester will impact the amount of funds available to pay tuition and fees.

  • A full refund is made if a course is cancelled by the College.
  • To withdraw from a course after the first scheduled class, follow the Withdrawal Policy.
  • The above policy does not pertain to courses that meet for fewer than five sessions.
  • The refund policy for non-credit courses and some credit courses vary.
Veteran's Benefits

Cape Cod Community College welcomes and appreciates our veterans. 4Cs has VA approval for educational training of veterans and their dependents.

The Financial Aid Office certifies payment for all VA Education Benefits. Veterans receive assistance obtaining tuition waivers and GI Bill® payments. The office provides application materials, contact information, and certifies enrollment.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts provides its Veterans, National Guard members, and Active Duty military stationed in Massachusetts with tuition waivers. For Veterans and Active Duty military, the waiver is approximately a 15% discount on each class. MA National Guard members may receive full tuition and fee coverage.

Many veterans receive financial assistance through the VA. Assistance may be in the form of tuition, fees, books, and monthly living stipends. The amount varies with each veteran's situation and with the number of credits per term. Spouses and children of disabled or deceased veterans may also qualify for monthly education payments. Recipients of the Post 9/11 and Montgomery GI Bill® will be charged resident rates. The College also participates in the VA Vocational Rehabilitation program.

The VA provides an online application for benefits at www.gibill.va.gov. Veterans should apply for a degree or certificate program through the Admissions Office. Once registered for classes, the Financial Aid Office will certify and monitor enrollment.

For more information, please visit our Financial Aid Office located on the first floor of the Nickerson Administration building, or call774.330.4393.
