BEFORE YOU FILE AN ENROLLMENT APPEAL
Students may submit only one Enrollment Appeal for one semester for as long as they attend BCC.
You must meet with an Advising Center staff member and may be required to meet with other Enrollment Management staff, the Course Instructor
or the Dean.
The U.S. Department of Education mandates a specic refund calculation if a student receives any form of nancial aid and has withdrawn from all
coursework. Depending on the nancial aid that has been received, the student may be responsible for repaying some or all of the aid back to the
College if s/he elects to withdraw— regardless of circumstances.
The College is under no obligation to refund charges after the Add/Drop period is over. Health insurance charges, bookstore purchases, registration
fees and any refund checks are NOT subject to appeal and refund.
AFTER YOU FILE AN ENROLLMENT APPEAL
The Enrollment Appeals Committee, Enrollment Services staff and the Vice President of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management will review
appeals involving nancial actions.
Decisions are sent via mail and email within approximately 45 calendar days.
