Refunds For Dropped Classes

Students who drop classes within the published time frame are entitled to a refund. A completed  Add/Drop Form, which is available at the Academic Records Office or on myTech on the Student Information tab, must be submitted in a timely manner to the Academic Records Office in order to drop a class. The date the completed form is received by the Academic Records Office is used to determine refunds eligibility and/or final approval of the classes dropped. For questions email billing@statetechmo.edu.

Students who never attend, or cease to attend a class they have enrolled in may be administratively withdrawn. Students may also be administratively withdrawn as a result of disciplinary procedures. Students may be financially responsible for charges incurred under these circumstances.

If State Tech cancels a class for any reason, students will receive a full refund for that class.

Students who drop class(es) by submitting the appropriate, completed forms will receive refunds according to the following schedule:

16-Week Class

  • 1st week of class: 100% Refund
  • 2nd week of class: No Refund

Any class not on a 16-week schedule will be prorated based on the above schedule.

Students may change sections of the same class with the approval of the instructor(s). There is no cost for changing sections during the same semester.

Students who switch from the classroom to a web-based class will be required to pay the additional cost for web-based classes.

Housing Refunds

Review the current housing agreement for the policy regarding housing refunds.

Credit Balance Refunds

If a student account has a credit balance resulting from excess financial aid, a refund will be processed within 14 days of the date the student’s account reflects a credit balance.
