Refund Policy

Students who do not attend or stop attending their classes and fail to withdraw through MyTMCC within the refund periods will be held responsible for all tuition and fees.  Refunds for withdrawing classes are based on the number of times that the class has met and not the number of times that a student has attended.

Instructor withdrawals do not remove charges.

Withdrawals during the 100% refund period remove the class and grade from transcripts.

Withdrawals that result in any monies still owed will result in classes remaining on transcripts and a grade of W.

Refunds for cash or check payments are made to direct deposit if a student has set this up in MyTMCC; otherwise a check is issued. All check refunds are mailed to the student’s current on-file address.

Refunds for Exceptional Circumstances

Students are responsible for either paying for, or officially withdrawing online from, each class in which they register, even if they do not attend. If a student fails to withdraw online during the full-refund period, they will be responsible for all tuition and fees.

In the case of exceptional circumstance, upon presentation of documentation and approval of the president or the president’s designee, a refund of the registration fees and nonresident tuition for a semester may be given upon official withdrawal made at any time during the semester in the following instances:

  1. Deployment of the student in the United States Armed Forces or Nevada National Guard;
  2. An incapacitating illness or injury which prevents the student from returning to school;
  3. Death or incapacitation resulting from an illness or injury of the student, or spouse, child, parent, or legal guardian of the student that prevents the student from returning to school for the remainder of the semester;
  4. Verifiable error on the part of the institution;
  5. Involuntary job transfer outside the service area of the institution as documented by employer, or;
  6. Other exceptional circumstances beyond the control of the institution or the student.


Refunds are made to the student or to the contributing party in proportion to the payment of original fees made by each.

Students may apply for an exception to the refund policy within a semester, whether or not they have dropped the class(s) online.

Students may apply for an exception to the refund policy within 90 days after the end of a semester provided they have dropped the class(s) online.

Students may not apply for an exception to the refund policy after 90 days from the end of a semester.
