During the 2020-21 academic year, some or all of the instructional formats may change due to an emergency situation affecting college operations, public safety, or public health, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuition and fees are charged at the beginning of the semester and will remain in place regardless of any changes in instructional format. Tuition and fees will not be refunded in the event the curriculum delivery format changes for any part of the 2020-21 academic year.

Paying For College
An education from Lamar Community College is a great investment. It’s also affordable.
Payments, Adjustments, and Refunds
When a student registers for each semester, all charges (tuition, fees, room and board) are due by census of the earliest classes census date. Students who have applied for and have been awarded financial aid must pay the difference, if any, between the actual cost and amount awarded unless they have made prior arrangements with the Business Office.
Students who have an unpaid balance due from a previous semester will be dropped from classes by census of the current term.
If a student adds a class (or classes) creating additional charges, all charges are due at that time. If a student drops the class(es), he or she may expect to receive a refund approximately 6-8 weeks after the student drops class(es) if prior payment was made. This policy applies to all students.
