STRF (Student Tuition Recovery Fund)
STRF is a state requirement that a student who pays his or her tuition is required to pay a state imposed assessmentfor the student tuition recovery fund. This rule was established by the Legislature to protect any student who attends a private postsecondary institution from losing money if you prepaid tuition and suffered a financial loss as a result of the school closing. You do not qualify by failing to live up to the school’s enrollment agreement or refusing to pay a court judgment. All students are eligible for the STRF. To qualify for STRF reimbursement you must file a STRF application within one year of receiving notice from BPPE that the school is closed. IF you do not receive notice from BPPE, you have four years from the date of closure to file a STRF application. If a judgment is obtained you must file a STRF application within two years of the final judgment. It is important that you keep copies of the enrollment agreement, receipts or any other information that documents the monies paid to the school. Any questions regarding the STRF may be directed to:

WITHDRAWAL: Withdrawing from a Course
Students have the right to withdraw from a program of instruction until the 60% point of the course and receive at least a partial refund. Students are obligated to pay only for education services rendered and any unreturned equipment until the 60 percent point of the course, as measured in hours, after which no refund will be possible. The refund shall be calculated by (a) deducting a registration fee not exceeding $100 from the total tuition charge; (b) dividing this figure by the number of hours in the program; (c) the quotient is the hourly charge for the program; (d) the amount owed by the student for purposes of calculating a refund is derived by multiplying the total hours attended by the hourly charge for instruction; (e) the refund would be any amount in excess of the figure derived in step (d) that was paid by the student; and (f ) the refund amount shall be adjusted for unreturned equipment. If a separate charge for equipment is specified in the agreement, and the student actually obtains the equipment, and the student returns that equipment in good condition allowing for reasonable wear and tear, within 30 days following the date of the student’s withdrawal, the institution shall refund the charge for the equipment paid by the student. If the student fails to return that equipment in good condition, allowing for reasonable wear and tear, within 30 days following the date of the student’s withdrawal, CCMCC may offset against the refund calculated the documented cost to the institution of that equipment. The student is liable for the amount, if any, by which the documented cost for equipment exceeds the prorated refund amount. Equipment cannot be returned in good condition if the equipment cannot be reused because of health and sanitary reasons and this fact is clearly and conspicuously disclosed in the agreement. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan. Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student.
How Does Contra Costa Medical Career College Calculate Refunds
- Total program charge – Registration fee = Total program cost
- Total program cost ÷ program hours = Program fee per hour
- Per hour program fee x hours attended = Total program charge
- Total program cost – Total program charge = Refund (The hourly program fee shall be multiplied by hours attended by student minus program charge equals refund.)
IF THE AMOUNT THAT THE STUDENT PAID IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THAT THE STUDENT OWES FOR THE TIME ATTENDED, THEN A REFUND WILL BE MADE WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE OF DETERMINATION OF WITHDRAWAL. IF THE AMOUNT THAT THE STUDENT OWES IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THAT THE STUDENT HAS ALREADY PAID, THEN THE STUDENT WILL HAVE TO ARRANGE TO PAY IT.
Hypothetical Refund Example
For example, if a student enrolls in a 100 hour program and withdraws after receiving 35 hours of instruction, and if the student paid a $75.00 registration fee and $2,000 tuition, the school would deduct the $75.00 registration fee from the amount received, divide the remaining $2,000 by the number of hours in the program (2000 / 100 = 20) and multiply that hourly amount times the number of hours received by the student (35 x 20 = $700.) The amount paid, in excess of that amount would be the amount of the refund. ($2,000 – $700 = $1,300 Refund Amount. In addition, the refund would include any amount paid for equipment, which is subsequently returned in good condition. If you attend class and drop before payment is made, you will be responsible for tuition accrued up to the date formal withdrawal notice is given. If the school cancels or discontinues a course or educational program, the school will make a full refund of all charges. Refunds will be paid within 30 days of cancellation or withdrawal.
PAYMENT OF REFUNDS
Refunds are made within 30 days following the date upon which the student’s withdrawal has been determined. Pre-contract Disclosure: If the student obtains a loan to pay for the course of instruction, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. If the student is eligible for a loan guaranteed or reinsured by the state or federal government and the student defaults on the loan:
- (i) The federal or state government or the loan guarantee agency can take action against the student, including applying any income tax refund to which the person is entitled to reduce the balance owed on the loan.
- (ii) The student may not be eligible for any other federal financial assistance for education at a different school or for government housing assistance until the loan is repaid.
