- Withdrawal prior to the first day of class will require a $50 processing fee.
- Up to 5% of authorized program hours offered, 20% of tuition will be charged.

Federal Title IV Refunds
The financial aid (Pell Grant and Student Loans) earned by the student is equal to the percentage of the period enrollment completed. When a student withdraws before completing more than 60% of the period enrollment, the percentage of financial aid is pro-rated using the Federal Refund/Repayment Policy. The returned funds must be refunded to the following sources in this specific order:
- Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
- Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans
- Federal Plus Loans
- Federal Pell Grants
Upon termination of enrollment, any balance due to OCM BOCES, based on the school's refund policy, is payable immediately. All charges on the student's account must be paid in full prior to the completion of the training program.
OCM BOCES reserves the right to withhold student transcripts and deny approval for State Board Examinations to any student who has an outstanding balance with the Financial Aid Office.
