Financial aid is not available for Continuing Education courses. Tuition for students enrolling in courses to prepare individuals for employment, or upgrade the skills of workers already employed (Occupation Extension) may vary. However, fees may be established for self-supporting seminars and courses according to the schedule below; in some cases more than normal expenses to the College may be incurred. Such charges may cover the cost of instructional materials and/or textbooks required in such classes.
The North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges is responsible for our fee structure for Occupational Extension courses. These fees are subject to change.
Continuing Education Occupational Extension (per course)
1 – 24 hours ………….$ 70.00
25 – 50 hours…………$125.00
Students who take an Occupational Extension course more than twice within a five-year period, unless required for certification, re-certification, or licensure, are required to pay a different formula rate per contact hour. To check the current rate you can visit the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges FTE Values.
Continuing Education fees vary depending on the course classification. Some programs, such as Basic Skills, Emergency Services, and Human Resources Development, may be fee waived.
Withdrawal & Refund Policy
The Refund Policy is established by the NC General Assembly for all NC community colleges. If any courses are cancelled by CFCC, a full refund will be given. Students do not have to request a refund in this case.
Refund requests and withdrawals must be made in writing by the student (no exceptions). Refund request forms are available at each class site. A request for refund and withdrawal may be done by letter.
- A 100-percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from a course before the first date of the course meeting. A written request must be dated and received by the Continuing Education department, or instructor before the first date of course meeting.
- A 75-percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from a course before, or on the “10-percent date” of scheduled hours. A written request must be dated and received by the Continuing Education department, or instructor before or on the “10-percent date” of scheduled hours. Students are responsible for obtaining the “10-percent date” from their instructor on the first course meeting.
CFCC is now collecting a $5 technology fee for all courses that utilize computer technology. This fee will cover the growing cost of maintaining and upgrading the College’s computer system.
