Richland’s refund policy for credit classes is published in its entirety in the online Richland College catalog.
Dropping a Class: Means dropping one or more classes for a given semester while remaining in others within the Dallas County Community College District.
Withdrawing From Classes: Means to officially drop all courses for a given semester within the Dallas County Community College District.
All refunds may take up to 30 days to process. Refunds and/or disbursements may be held indefinitely if you have certain blocks on your account or if you owe a prior financial obligation to the DCCCD.
Students who officially drop a portion of their classes or withdraw from the college may be refunded a percentage of the total tuition paid on semester length classes, according to the following schedule:
|100% refund||Before August 31|
|70% refund||August 31 through September 17th|
|25% refund||September 18th through September 23rd|
|No refund||On or after September 24th|
If your class does not start on the first day of the semester and end on the last day of the semester, your refund dates could be different than the ones listed above. Please contact the Admissions Office for these dates.
Richland College reserves the right to assign a different instructor to teach a course after publication of this class schedule. Such changes are not grounds for a refund. All Richland College faculty are qualified to teach in their field.
NOTE: DCCCD has partnered with Higher One, a financial services company, to process and distribute refunds and disbursements to most credit students and financial aid students.
Most students who receive financial aid and most credit students who paid cash or check should receive their refunds & disbursements via Higher One. Click here for instructions on how to get your Higher One DCCCD Money Card.
Most credit students who paid with a credit or debit card & are not receiving financial aid should receive their refunds back to the card that was used for payment.
