ACC Refund Policy

ACC’s refund policy complies with the Texas Education code when it comes to tuition and fees refunds. When you drop a class, you are eligible for a refund.

Getting a refund for a dropped class depends on when it happened in the registration period. The refund options are 25%, 70%, and 100%, based on your specific situation. Check for more information on dropped classes in the Fall, Spring, or the Summer semester in this calendar.

ACC checks on dropped classes twice a week until the tuition deadline during the registration period. If you want a refund, make sure to withdraw from a class before the deadline passes. All up-to-date information on important dates and deadlines can be found on this webpage.

ACC Continuing Education

Be aware that if you are a Continuing Education student and you didn’t pay with a credit card, your refund check will be sent to your address. It should be noted that classes that are one day should be dropped before the class begins so that you receive a refund, as stated under Tuition & Course Fees. Consult their refund policy for your particular situation.

Other ACC Refunds

Besides the tuition fee refund when you drop class, you can also receive your money back for other things the Austin Community College has in store for you.

  • First Day Book Fee
  • Parking Permits

First Day Book Fee Refund

If you change your mind about getting First Day books, but you already paid for them, you need to submit your refund request on your course’s site on Blackboard. You can do so by 5 p.m., but check the important dates to see on which exact days, so you don’t miss your chance.

Parking Permit Refund

In the event that you purchased a parking permit and you want ACC to give you your money back, you can request a refund for these three reasons:

  1. Your classes were canceled
  2. You withdrew from the classes before the start day
  3. You bought the parking permit by accident

In these situations, you should submit a parking permit fee refund request form to the ACC Cashier Office on the fourth floor at Highland Business Center.
