The College Opportunity Fund is how the State of Colorado subsidizes higher education for in-state students, and is not a form of financial aid. The COF subsidy is applied to your tuition, if you are classified as a resident for tuition purposes and if you apply for and authorize the use of the stipend. For more information, visit Information Central or go to www.college-assist.org.
The Colorado Community College System procedure allows a student to receive a tuition refund only when courses are dropped by the census date. In truly severe circumstances such as a natural disaster, serious medical condition or death of an immediate family member, ACC may consider tuition credit. Failing to drop by the deadline does not release a student from financial responsibility and is not an extenuating circumstance. For more information, contact Student Life at 303.797.5668 and/or fill out the appropriate extenuating circumstances form(s)
You may pay for classes online, by mail, via phone at 303.797.5638, or in person at the Cashiers Office on the Littleton Campus. You may set up a payment plan by logging on to myACC

A financial obligation to the College occurs when you register for classes. Refunds are granted only when classes are officially dropped in person or on the web by the Drop Date (last date to add/drop class). This date varies depending on the class beginning and ending dates. Failure to attend class or notifying Instructors of intent to drop WILL NOT result in a refund and does not release you from financial responsibility. If you drop classes before 15% of the class has expired you will receive a 100% tuition refund. There will be no refunds granted after the first 15% of the class (Drop Date). If you withdraw from classes after the Drop Date and have an unpaid balance, you are responsible for full payment of your account. ACC forwards unpaid accounts to State Approve Collection Agencies. The State of Colorado will withhold balances due from Colorado tax refunds. Financial aid recipients who officially or unofficially withdraw from the College may owe a repayment of Title IV funds received. Visit the Financial Aid Office
, Room M2330, for more information on the process for Return of Title IV Funds
Credit Card Refund Guidelines
Any refunds due to you, including financial aid disbursement, will be credited through BankMobile, unless payments for tuition and fees have been made with a credit card. If a credit card was used to pay tuition and fees, then the following process will be used:
- The refund will be made back to the credit card used to pay for tuition and fees.
- The refund made back to the credit card cannot exceed the original payment from that card.
- If the refund is greater than the original credit card payment, the excess refund will be processed through BankMobile guidelines.
