Enrollment for dual credit courses is arranged by the high school. College tuition is paid to Metropolitan Community College at the rate of half of the cost of attending courses on one of the MCC campuses. The school or the student will be billed as established in the dual credit agreement. In many cases, the high school will provide required books for the courses.
Students who register for dual credit classes are required to pay their tuition and fees by the deadline posted. MCC will mail student statements or invoices. Students who do not pay account balances by the applicable payment deadline are subject to courses being dropped for non-payment. High schools may set up a payment plan.
Students are responsible for paying all college charges. If payment from an external source becomes unavailable or is insufficient to pay charges, students must pay the balance immediately. If there are outstanding charges, a financial hold will be placed on the account restricting future enrollment and release of academic records. MCC will begin immediate collection efforts that may include placing the account with the Missouri income tax intercept program.
Checks returned by the bank as Insufficient are deposited a second time. If the check is returned again, the MCC account is placed on restriction and is charged the amount of the check plus a $25 fee. Students on restriction cannot enroll, receive grades and/or transcripts. The student account will also have no check-writing privileges for one year from the point the returned check is paid. Any returned check not paid will be referred for outside collection actions.
