Withdrawals, Drop Classes and Refunds

Non-credit community education students who withdraw (drop) a course will be assessed a $10 processing fee on all refunds. The processing fee will be assessed on a per course basis. A full refund (less the processing fee) will be made if the course is dropped at least three business days prior to the start of the course or event. No refunds are available after that time. If a course or event is cancelled by Bellevue College, a 100% refund will be made.

The *deadlines for dropping a course are as follows:
Monday class – 5:00 p.m. on previous Tuesday
Tuesday class – 5:00 p.m. previous Wednesday
Wednesday class – 5:00 p.m. previous Thursday
Thursday class – 5:00 p.m. previous Friday
Friday class – 5:00 p.m. previous Monday
Saturday class – 5:00 p.m. previous Tuesday
Sunday class – 5:00 p.m. previous Tuesday

*Some courses have withdrawal and refund requirements that differ from this. These are noted in the course descriptions.

You may request a refund by phone at (425) 564-2263 or via email at conted@bellevuecollege.edu. A $10 processing fee is assessed on student-initiated refunds. This process is for non-credit community education courses only.
