Payment plans
A payment plan is an interest-free option offered by Cabarrus College that breaks down the large lump-sum payments due at the beginning of each semester into easy-to-manage installments either bi-weekly or monthly. A fee of $50.00 per semester will be assessed each semester you establish a payment plan. Payment plans can be combined with financial aid and student loans to help manage your total cost. Payment plans are established through the Business Office located in the Student Support Center.

There are two types of refunds

    1. Refund from student accounts
      Students who receive financial aid in excess of tuition and fees and books will receive refunds only after funds are received and posted to the students' accounts.
    2. Tuition refund
      All students (excluding continuing education) who withdraw from the College may be refunded tuition upon the student's written request in accordance with the following schedule:
