Refunds and Withdrawal Policy

In compliance with federal regulations, financial aid funds are transferred to student accounts after Drop/Add to ensure the most accurate registration status. Only students that have had their verification completed (if selected) and have resolved any outstanding items with their FAFSA will have funds transferred.

NOTE: If your FAFSA was filed late or you have any unresolved verification issues, the financial aid funds cannot be released and a refund cannot be processed.

Stop Payment Procedures

Trident Technical College allows seven business days for a check to be returned to the college or considered lost in the mail before issuing a stop payment on the check. After the Finance department places the stop payment request, the department allows three business days before the check is reissued. If the three business days fall between the normal refund check processing, then the check will not be reissued until the next scheduled refund cycle. In other words, the college will replace the check in the next refund check cycle, but no earlier than three business days after the stop payment is placed. Please email if you have any questions.

Credit Card Refunding

When payment is received by credit card, the system reverts to the original method of payment. Therefore, overpayments will be credited back to the original credit card used for payment.


Financial aid refunds are made in accordance with federal Title IV regulations. Financial aid recipients please note that if you withdraw completely before 60% of the semester has occurred, you may owe money back to the federal government and TTC. If you are receiving federal student aid Title IV funds, you need to discuss course withdrawals and your financial aid status with a financial aid officer. For more information, click here.
