Community Education - Drop/Refund Policy
For One-Day Classes
If a Community Education class is scheduled to meet only once, a student can drop the class any time before the scheduled class start date and receive a full refund of the registration fee paid to Cerro Coso Community College. Click here for instructions on how to receive a refund.
For Classes That Meet More Than Once
Before the 2nd Scheduled Class Day Begins
A student can request a full refund of his/her registration fee after attending the first class day, but the request for a refund must be made before the second class day.
After the 2nd Scheduled Class Day
If a student has a legitimate reason for needing to drop a class after it has started, the Community Education Manager may authorize a refund for one of the following reasons:
- Physically unable to complete course (e.g. unexpected injury before or during the class, the class was more physically demanding than expected)
- Financial hardship (e.g. student lost his or her job, unexpected expenses elsewhere)
- Schedule change (e.g. student's work schedule unexpectedly changed, family obligations)
- Medical or family emergency (e.g. injury or death in the family)

If a Community Education class is canceled by the college, each student will receive a full refund of his or her registration fee. In the event of a cancellation, you will receive instructions via e-mail from our Community Education Manager.
If you have a current Student Account (with Cerro Coso Community College, Porterville College or Bakersfield College), you have the option to receive your refund in the form of a credit to your student account or to receive a check in the mail. For either option please complete the Refund Request Form - make certain you select whether you want a credit posted to your account or a check mailed to you.
If you don't have a current Student Account (with Cerro Coso Community College, Porterville College or Bakersfield College), please complete our Refund Request Form. A refund check will be mailed from Bakersfield approximately two weeks after we receive your refund request.
