To receive a refund, a student must officially withdraw from class and request a refund in writing. Refund request forms are available at each class site, and requests may also be made by letter. If a class is cancelled or full, WTCC will issue a full refund. No request is necessary. Please contact the Continuing Education department for additional information. Refunds are processed on a monthly basis; however, please allow 4-6 weeks to receive the refund. The College refund policy is established by state legislative action and is subject to change without prior notice.

Transfer Policy Transfers from one course to another within a semester are allowed only until the 10% date of scheduled class hours in both courses and must be requested in writing. Transfers from one semester to another are not allowed. Repeat Policy North Carolina legislation states that students who take an occupational extension course more than twice within a five-year period shall pay their cost for the course based on the amount of funds generated by a student membership hour for occupational extension multiplied by the number of actual hours the class is to be taught. Students (including senior citizens) who take an occupational extension course more than twice within a five year period must pay for the course at the current rate of $6.80 per scheduled hour. These were the fees in effect at the time of printing and are subject to change without notice. You are exempt from this policy if you are required to have certification or licensure that necessitates the repetition. Senior Citizens North Carolina residents (65 and older) may be exempt from tuition for one course of non-credit instruction per academic semester (subject to change without notice). This does not include self-supporting classes. Senior citizen tuition exemption does not supersede the Course Repetition Policy if the same occupational extension class is registered for more than twice in a five-year period. Senior citizens are required to submit a registration form and to pay any additional fees associated with the course. Call for more information: 919-866-5800.
