Any MCC credit student in good financial standing may use the payment plan for a $35 sign-up fee.
There is no minimum number of credit hours, however there is a minimum balance requirement: the amount charged for tuition for one credit hour at the in-district rate.
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 The monthly installments of your balance will be automatically withdrawn according to the following schedules:
You may authorize a parent, relative, company or any other designated person to view, set up a payment plan and/or pay a student bill. 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.
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.
Please see your local campus cashier/business office.
Yes, but you must sign up at least two weeks before the final installment due date for that semester (see installment due dates above).
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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)

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.
You may need to submit additional documents or take steps to finish the financial aid process.
