Refund Payments

Once the refund has been calculated, and if the student paid with check or cash, students can choose to receive a check for the amount or have it credited to their WVC account. If the student paid by credit card, the refund will be credited back to that card.

Note that WVC will not print refund checks for less than $25. Any refund under $25 will automatically be credited to your WVC account.

If it is determined that a student has outstanding charges with WVC (tuition, library fines, etc.), the amount can be deducted from any refund they may receive.

If tuition was paid by financial aid, the type of aid received will determine how any refunds are processed. Contact the financial aid office at 509-682-6810 for more information.

Students have until the fifth business day of the academic quarter to withdraw from credit courses and still get a 100% tuition refund. More information about refunds can be found on our website.
