OCM BOCES Refund Policy for Full Time Certificate Programs




I understand if I decide to withdraw from school after beginning, I must notify my program coordinator of my intent in writing, in person, or by phone. A full refund is given to students if a class is canceled by OCM BOCES. Refunds are made without requiring a request from the student. If withdrawal or dismissal occurs after the start of the program, tuition liability will accrue as follows:
  • Withdrawal prior to the first or second day of class will only require the $50 processing fee.
  • Students who have enrolled without visiting OCM BOCES will be given a full refund (minus the $50 processing fee) as long as they withdraw by the end of the second day of class.
  • Up to 5% of authorized program hours offered, 20% of tuition will be charged.
  • The student will be responsible for the cost of supplies already issued or fees previously applied.
  • Up to 20% of authorized program hours offered, 50% of tuition will be charged.
  • Up to 30% of authorized program hours offered, 75% of tuition will be charged.
  • Over 30% of authorized program hours offered, 100% of tuition will be charged.
Tuition payments of more than $5.00 in excess of the amount owed will be made within 45 days of the last date of attendance.
Federal Title IV Refunds

The financial aid (Pell Grant and Student Loans) earned by the student is equal to the percentage of the period enrollment completed.  When a student withdraws before completing more than 60% of the period enrollment, the percentage of financial aid is pro-rated using the Federal Refund/Repayment Policy.  The returned funds must be refunded to the following sources in this specific order:
  1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
  2. Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans
  3. Federal Plus Loans
  4. Federal Pell Grants
Outstanding Balances

Upon termination of enrollment, any balance due to OCM BOCES, based on the school's refund policy, is payable immediately.  All charges on the student's account must be paid in full prior to the completion of the training program.
OCM BOCES reserves the right to withhold student transcripts and deny approval for State Board Examinations to any student who has an outstanding balance with the Financial Aid Office.
