Student Payment


Obtaining a Refund

All students who have officially dropped from classes, within the scheduled refund deadline, will be eligible for a refund or tuition credit based on the refund schedule. All refunds of cash and check payments are issued through the Maricopa Student Refund Program (see below). No refunds of cash are available. Refunds of credit card payments will be made only to the credit card on which the original payment was processed.

  • Note: Refunds of check payments will only be made 30 days after posting of the applicable payment.  Earlier processing is possible upon presentation of evidence that the check has cleared the bank. Such evidence may include the canceled check or a bank statement. Please do not bypass the refund process by placing a stop payment on a check made payable to Phoenix College. This could result in additional fees and delays in future services.
