Important Notices

To avoid being dropped from your courses, you should set up a payment plan or pay in full by your due date. If you are expecting a financial aid award or other funding source that has not been posted to your student account, you are responsible for payment until it is posted.

If a financial aid award or other funding source is applied to your student account and creates a credit balance, you should be refunded according to the Dallas College refund and disbursement policies. Refunds and disbursements may be withheld or transferred for certain blocks or past due balances owed.

If the financial aid award or other funding source applied to your student account is less than the amount owed, you are responsible for the remaining amount owed.

If you decide not to take a course(s), it is your responsibility to drop the course(s) or withdraw from all courses. Depending on the date of your drop or withdrawal, you may only be eligible for a partial refund or no refund at all.

Note: Students may petition for an exception to the refund policy in a separate process through student services.
