How much do I have to pay to get on the plan and when are payments due?

A non-refundable per semester sign-up fee must be paid to sign up for the plan. The plan divides your balance into equal installments and schedules automatic payments.  If you sign up after the first installment date (see below), you will pay the sign-up fee plus the first installment. Each time you sign up for a new plan, including switching between available plans within a term, you will be charged a sign-up fee.  The monthly installments of your balance will be automatically withdrawn according to the following schedules:

  • Summer: 1 plan available, 2 installments
    • 2-Pay Plan - Payments withdrawn on May 15 and June 15
  • Fall: 2 plans available, 3 or 4 installments
    • 3-Pay Plan - Payments withdrawn on July 15, Sept. 15, and Oct. 15
    • 4-Pay Plan - Payments withdrawn on July 15, Aug. 14, Sept. 15, and Oct. 15
  • Spring: 2 plans available, 3 or 4 installments
    • 3-Pay plan - Payments withdrawn on Dec. 15, Feb. 15, and March 15
    • 4-Pay plan - Payments withdrawn on Dec. 15, Jan. 15, Feb. 15, and March 15

Are books eligible for the plan?

No.

Can my parents or employer make payments for me?

More than one person can be given authorization and each will receive access information by email. You and the authorized person(s) can see only the payment details they personally enter and save.

How to authorize an online user:

  1. Go to myMCCKC and sign in to your account.

What are monthly automatic payments for?

When signing up for the payment plan, you agree to have the funds automatically debited from the account you choose on the assigned due dates. The following are the choices for automatic payments:

Automatic withdrawal from your bank account (ACH)

ACH payments are those payments you have authorized MCC to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at Metropolitan Community College. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Credit card promotional checks are not accepted.

Credit/debit card option

Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card or debit card you designate. MCC accepts MasterCard, VISA or Discover.

What if I do not have a bank account or credit/debit card?

Please see your local campus cashier/business office.

How can I see the agreement that I signed electronically at the time of pay plan enrollment, if I did not choose to print it out at that time?

  1. Go to myMCCKC, and sign into your account.
  2. Select "Student Center Home".
  3. Scroll down to the "Finances" section.

Can I sign up for the pay plan for the second, 8-week session?

Yes, but you must sign up at least two weeks before the final installment due date for that semester (see installment due dates above).

What happens if my scheduled monthly payment does not go through?

You will receive an email to your student email account notifying you of the failed payment. If you do not resolve the issue in a timely manner and the payment fails several more times, you will be charged a $20 late fee seven days after the first attempt. A late fee will continue to be charged every month the payment is late.

Why do I have to pay a late fee? You know I always eventually pay.

The payment plan was developed to assist students with tuition and fee payments. You are expected to pay on time. This is a bill that you must pay, just like rent, utilities, car payments, etc.

How do I change the payment method for my pay plan?

You can specify a different credit/debit card or bank account to use for your pay plan automatic payments any time before the payment due date, as follows:

  1. Go to myMCCKC and sign into your account.
  2. Select "Student Center Home".

If I dropped my classes after signing up for the payment plan, why can't I get my non-refundable sign-up fee back?

The payment plan fee is not refundable. It pays for the services provided by MCC upfront to process your enrollment in classes and in the payment plan.

Why do I have to get on a pay plan, make payments, or have a late fee when I applied for financial aid?

You are expected to pay for your classes when you enroll in them. If anticipated financial aid is not already awarded when you enroll, you are responsible for paying in full or signing up for the payment plan. If financial aid is awarded afterward, you will be reimbursed.

Other Financial Questions

Why do I have to pay for class, when...

I never attended any class sessions?

You are responsible for officially dropping yourself from classes you do not plan to attend. If anticipated financial aid or a hold has been placed on your account, your classes will not automatically drop for non-payment.

I only attended one class session?

It is your responsibility to officially drop yourself from class as soon as you plan to not continue. The cost of tuition is adjusted per the drop percent for that particular week. See the MCC refund policy and schedule.

I stopped attending after 2 weeks?

It is your responsibility to officially drop yourself from class as soon as you plan to not continue. The cost of tuition is adjusted per the drop percent for that particular week.See the MCC refund policy and schedule.

I stopped going; financial aid was supposed to pay?

If you never attended and had anticipated financial aid, you must go to class to be eligible to receive financial aid funds. It you are a federal student aid recipient, you must attend all classes in which you are enrolled. If you stop attending all of the classes before completing 60% of the semester, money is owed back to the financial aid program. See the Financial Aid FAQs.

Why do I have to pay back my financial aid and/or loan to MCC when these are federal funds?

Federal financial aid recipients must attend all classes in which they are enrolled. If you stop attending all of your classes before 60% of the semester, MCC must pay back the federal aid you did not "earn" to the U.S. Department of Education. You must reimburse MCC for these funds. Note to loan borrowers: remember, you must remain enrolled at least half time to receive a loan disbursement.

Return of Title IV Funds, Policy and Regulations

These regulations apply when you complete withdraw, drop out, are expelled, or otherwise fail to complete the period of enrollment for which you have been charged. Federal Title IV funds will be returned to the U.S. Department of Education in the following priority award order:

  • Federal Direct Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized)
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
  • Other Title IV funds

As a recipient of Title IV federal financial aid, it is your responsibility to earn the aid provided for your period of enrollment. The law specifies how the school must determine the amount of financial aid earned at the time of complete withdrawal.

What happens if I drop one or more classes during the 50% refund period?

You are responsible for one half (50%) of the cost of each class you drop during this period, regardless of whether or not you attended the class. If you paid 100% of the cost, 50% will be returned to you.

Why am I still enrolled when the class was supposed to be dropped for non-payment?

You are responsible for officially withdrawing yourself from any classes you do not plan to attend. If anticipated financial aid or a hold has been placed on your account, your classes will not automatically drop for non-payment.
