Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Withdrawal Policy

During the first 14 calendar days of the semester, courses that a student drops or courses for which a student receives a refund will be removed from the student’s schedule and will not appear on his/her transcript. After 14 days, a student who wishes to withdraw from any course must obtain a withdrawal form from the Registrar’s office or withdraw online by the withdraw deadline. After the deadline, a student who wishes to withdraw from a course(s) must obtain an Instructor Approval Course Withdrawal form from the Registrar’s office or academic offices. A request for a withdrawal after the deadline does not guarantee an approval. Be sure to check with the Registrar’s office for specific deadline dates each semester.

Credit extension courses have different withdrawal policies. Please refer to the Enrollment Guide or summer/winter catalogs.

Financial Aid Refund Policy

Any student who is attending MCC and is receiving student financial assistance under the Federal Title IV programs may be entitled to a refund if they completely withdraw from their program. Read more

Non-Attendance Policy

Students are required to attend class in order to receive financial aid. Professors report any student who has not attended classes in the first two weeks of classes. The Financial Aid office is informed via email and financial aid is cancelled and a hold is placed on the student’s account. This will most likely result in a bill with the college. Students in this situation will be notified by the Financial Aid office.

Proof of attendance (for all classes) can be submitted to the Financial Aid office. If it is determined that the student is attending classes, financial aid will be reinstated and the hold will be removed.
