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 myGCC 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.
