When you register for any class (credit or noncredit), you assume a financial responsibility. To be eligible for a refund, you must officially drop the course by the drop/add deadline. To do this, you may either file a drop/add form with Records and Registration or drop your class online through MyAACC. Refund deadlines are published in the schedule of classes and are also listed below.
If you stop attending a course but do not officially drop it, you continue to be financially responsible for all tuition and fees and will receive a failing grade.
Courses dropped prior to the refund deadline are eligible for a full refund. Students are provided a full refund when the college cancels a class.
To be eligible for a refund for a noncredit course, you must officially drop the course before the first class. You can drop your class by completing the noncredit drop/add form and submitting to email@example.com or fax 410-777-4325.
Refunds are generally issued and mailed approximately 15 days after a class is dropped or canceled. Refunds are issued in the form of a check or electronic check* unless 100% of your total refundable credit was originally paid with a credit card within the past 90 days. In that case, the refund is credited to your card.
*Electronic Check (E-Check)
An e-check refund is a direct deposit that is made via an electronic transfer to a personal checking or savings account (held within the United States). E-check refunds are a safe and secure way to make sure your money gets into your account in the most convenient way possible. You also won't have to wait for a paper check to arrive in the mail.
If your account is not verified prior to the refund processing it will result in a paper check. This may happen if you set up your account information at the same time the check process is running. A verified account will have a green check mark in the “verification” column. You can only have one bank account active to receive funds.

If you cannot complete a credit class, you must “withdraw” officially to avoid a failing grade. To do this, you may either file a drop/add form with Records and Registration or drop your class online through MyAACC. An entry of "W" will appear on your record and you will continue to be financially responsible for the withdrawn class. You may withdraw through the "last day to withdraw" date listed for your course under My Class Schedule in MyAACC.
If you have received a federal grant or loan and drop or withdraw from a course, you may owe a portion of the funds you received back to that federal program. For details contact the financial aid office at 410-777-2203.
If you wish to withdraw from a course and the last day to withdraw has passed, contact advising for assistance.
