Tuition Refunds

Course registration creates a financial obligation to GCC.  A tuition refund is only effective upon formal (written) withdrawal.  The student can withdraw in writing in the Record’s Office or at any campus center location.  They can also withdraw online through their GenESIS account.  Please be aware that non-attendance is NOT withdrawal.  For further information on academic withdrawal, please contact the Record’s Office at (585) 343-0055 ext. 6218.

SUNY Tuition Refund Policy

The SUNY Board of Trustees approved a resolution standardizing the refund policy for all New York State community colleges as of the Fall semester 1998. A student is eligible to receive a 100% refund of tuition charges up until the day before the semester begins.  After that date, the student is charged in accordance with the policy:

During first week 75%
During second week 50%
