SWGTC Refund Policy
Effective April 1, 2008, in keeping with the new state-wide enrollment processing policy from the Technical College System of Georgia, Southwest Georgia Technical College implemented a three (3) day drop period, 100% refund period, and a seven (7) calendar day add period at the beginning of each semester, Students have the first three days of each semester to drop any or all of the courses they are registered for. If students drop course(s) during this period, they will receive a 100% refund of all tuition and applicable fees, will not earn a “W” grade in the class and not have any hours counted as attempted hours for financial aid. If students drop any course(s) after the third instructional day of the semester, they will receive no refund, will earn a “W” grade and will have the credit hours count as attempted hours for financial aid.
Refunds, when due, will be made without requiring a request from the student.
Refunds, when due, will be made within thirty (30) days of the following circumstances: (1) of the last day of attendance if written notification has been provided to the College by the student; or (2) from the date the College terminates the student or determines withdrawal by the student.
Refunds for Continuing Education
Enrollment determines whether a class can be offered. For refund, there must be an accurate enrollment figure before the class begins. Refunds for Continuing Education courses and seminars are made if requested in writing twenty four hours before the first class date and time. All refund requests must be accompanied by a receipt. A full refund is made if the class is canceled.
The Vice President of Administrative Services is has the overall responsibility for ensuring this policy is implemented.
