It is the policy of OTC to refund 100% tuition and refundable fees for students withdrawing from a course by the end of the third day of the term and no shows. After the third day of the term, a student will not receive a tuition refund. Students receiving Title IV funds (PELL, FSEOG, Loans) may or may not receive a Title IV refund.

Refunds for Title IV recipients are calculated as follows: Number of Days Completed divided by Number of Days in Semester = Percentage of Title IV Aid Earned
*100% if greater than 60% - If funds are remaining after tuition and fees are deducted from Earned Title IV Funds, then a refund for the remainder will be issued by the Business Office prior to the end of the term.
