Failure to attend class or notifying your instructor of your intent to withdraw does not constitute an official withdrawal.

Refunds for credit payments are credited back to the card originally charged. Please allow up to two billing cycles for the refund to show on your credit statement. Refunds for check and cash payments are issued via check and are mailed to the original payer. Please allow six to eight weeks to receive your check.

CCE reserves the right to cancel a course. If a course is cancelled, you will receive a full refund.

If you have an outstanding financial obligation to the University of Hawai╩╗i, no refunds will be issued until the unpaid obligation is cleared. Any refund will first be applied to the unpaid charges owed to UH.
