Questions about your refund

If you have not received your refund and it has been 10 calendar days since the refund was disbursed, please contact the Accounts Receivable Office at 503-594- 6068 to inquire about a stop payment.

NOTE: An Affidavit of lost item will need to be filled out prior to placing the stop payment and a fee may be assessed.

Disputing tuition charges

CCC provides full refunds for classes dropped by the posted deadline. We do not provide partial refunds. To receive a refund, classes must be dropped by the posted deadlines in person with the Enrollment Services department or online through your myClackamas account:

  • During the first two weeks of the class for classes meeting five weeks or more
  • During the first week of class for classes meeting for 3-4 weeks
  • Before the class begins for classes meeting for 2 weeks or less

NOTE: Failure to attend class does not relieve you of your financial responsibility. Verbal notification for non-attendance is not sufficient for receiving a refund. If an extreme hardship prevented you from continuing your studies through the term, you may attempt to dispute your charges by submitting the Refund Policy Petition form to the Registration Office.

CCC will answer any dispute in writing within 30 days.

Questions regarding your petition status can be directed to the Enrollment Services Department at 503-594-6074 or
