Fees and Charges

 
Refunds
Pro rata refunds of the basic charges will be made for students who withdraw either voluntarily or upon advice from the College physician during the enrollment period. The enrollment period is either the fall or spring semester. (Refunds of basic charges are not granted to full-time students withdrawing during the January Program.) A similar refund policy is in effect for Colby off-campus programs.

The College offers an optional tuition refund insurance designed to reduce the financial loss caused by a medical withdrawal. Brochures are mailed in June to the student's home address.

No refund will be made until the withdrawal/leave process established by the dean of students is completed.

Federal regulations determine the amount and the order in which federal loans and scholarships are to be refunded.

No refunds are made for students who elect not to do an on-campus January Program.

Future Tuition and Fees
The College projects that Colby costs likely will increase above inflation in order to: maintain the real growth in salaries comparable to professionals outside of higher education; continue a financial aid grant program for about one third of all Colby students; maintain and update the College's physical plant and sophisticated equipment; and retain flexibility for currently unforeseen but essential investments that will be needed to keep Colby in the forefront of innovation and excellence in national liberal arts colleges.
