Refunds

Refunds on a student account can be made only if the account has an actual credit balance. Refunds, which must be requested in writing (PDF) and take seven to 14 days to process, will not be issued on credits created by “expected financial assistance.”

Withdrawal During the Term

A student who wishes to withdraw from the college must give notice by submitting a Withdrawal/Leave of Absence form to the dean of students (dean_of_students@hmc.edu) or the associate dean for academic affairs (jon_jacobson@hmc.edu). No refunds are made if the student withdraws without giving notice. A student receives a refund, less a pro-rata reduction of any scholarship or grant, subject to the following:

  • 100 percent refund of charges and fees is made if withdrawal occurs before the first day of classes
  • 75 percent refund of the tuition charge is made if withdrawal occurs before the 18th day of classes
  • 50 percent refund of the tuition charge is made if withdrawal occurs after the first 17 days of classes, but by the 30th day of class
  • No refund of the tuition charge is made after the 30th day of class
  • Refund of the board charge is on a pro-rata basis
  • No refunds of room charges or fees are made
  • Refunds are made by HMC within 30 days of receipt by the Dean of Students or the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the Withdrawal/Leave of Absence form

Questions regarding withdrawal should be directed to the dean of students (dean_of_students@hmc.edu) or the associate dean for academic affairs (jon_jacobson@hmc.edu). Questions regarding the College’s refund policy or procedure should be directed to the Office of Student Accounts at student_accounts@hmc.edu or 909.621.8107.
