Trinity College

Refund Policy & Schedule

The College uses the following guidelines and policy in determining tuition and fee refunds for students.

In the event, the College cancels a class, and an alternative class is not available, 100% of the class tuition will be refunded.

It is very important to be aware of the Refund Policy for Trinity College, as well as all other institutions, including Black Hawk College, and Eastern Iowa Community College District. The Refund Policy varies by institution in which the courses are offered; therefore students should check the Refund Policy for each institution.

If a student stops attending a course without officially dropping or withdrawing, the student may receive an F due to absence from the classroom/clinical rotations or be withdrawn administratively by faculty. If a student never attends a course in which they are enrolled, the faculty may drop a student because of non-attendance or non-participation.

It is the student's responsibility for dropping a course. Withdrawal or non-attendance may result in loss of financial aid. Students who are unable to arrange payment with the College should drop  their courses within the refund period to avoid incurring tuition and charges. A student is financially responsible for tuition and fees for all classes not officially dropped by the appropriate refund date. For accelerated semesters, it is important for students to note the last day of the 100% refund period if they are not able to secure funds to pay tuition and fees. If a withdrawal request is sent by mail, the date the request is received by the College will determine the percentage of the refund. No refunds are granted if a student is dismissed for disciplinary reasons.

Every attempt will be made to issue authorized refund checks by the end of the fifth week of classes. Questions concerning refund eligibility and exceptions to this policy are referred to Student Services, and questions concerning amounts refunded are referred to the Bursar. Refunds are processed by the Bursar and will be made payable to, and mailed to the student. When a student owes money to the College, it is College policy to deduct that amount from the tuition refund. These financial obligations may include past due tuition and fees, returned checks, fines, or other obligations.
