Credit Course Refunds
Refunds are issued by check every Friday after the end of the refund period according the appropriate refund table.
100 percent refund if course is dropped within 48 hours of the start of the class excluding weekend and holidays. For example, if a class starts on Saturday, the refund time table starts the following Monday.
Registration fee: $10 per semester, nonrefundable.
No refunds will be paid in cash. If requested, credit card payments may be refunded as a credit to the card used for payment if classes are dropped. The card must be presented to the cashier at the time of the request. Scholarship or financial aid refunds will not be refunded to a credit card. The refund will be paid by check to the student. Refund checks will be mailed after the first Friday the refund table ends.
It is the student's responsibility to drop a course by published deadlines.

Non-Credit Course Refunds
If you register for a non-credit class, but are unable to attend, you must come to the Matteson Area Center and complete a drop form. No refunds will be issued unless requested 48 business hours before the first class meeting.
What If I Never Attend?
Course attendance is important to academic success. You must attend the courses you register for at Prairie State College. If you register for a course and never attend, you run the risk of being dropped from the course(s). If you will be unable to attend any courses in which you enrolled, you must drop them. Refer to the academic calendar and the college refund table for applicable dates. Use the A-Z index where information is arranged alphabetically.
