Paying for College

At MCC, low tuition and fees and a variety of payment options make achieving your educational goals affordable and attainable. Prior to registration for classes, all students must establish a method of payment. There are many methods of payment and several opportunities for financial aid, scholarships and veterans benefits. Students are encouraged to speak with a representative in the Bursar’s Office after registering for classes to ensure their account has been settled.

Important Dates and News

All Semesters

  • MCC uses your current registration schedule to calculate your charges in accordance with CSCU Board of Regents (BOR)-approved Tuition and Fee Rate Tables. All tuition and fee charges are subject to change by the BOR.
  • While MCC reserves the right to cancel unpaid registrations, as long as your name is on an official roster your account will be charged and you will earn a grade for the course – whether you attended it or not.
  • If you change your mind about taking a course(s) after you register, you are required to officially drop it whether or not you have made payment or have attended. Do not assume that your account will be dropped for non-payment.
  • You will continue to be responsible for all charges until you officially drop the class regardless of your payment status. Dropping a course is the only way to ensure your account will not be charged.
  • Without exception, once your registration is cancelled you won’t be able to re-register unless there is space available in the class.

Summer/Winter Semester

  • Full payment is due when you register.
  • Installment payment plans are not available for Summer or Winter courses.

Fall/Spring Semester

  • Installment payment plans are available.

Installment Payment Plan and FAQs

Who can enroll? Any credit student enrolled in a regular academic semester with charges of $1,029 or more can enroll in a payment plan unless there is an unpaid balance from a previous semester.

How much does it cost? The plan costs $25 (non-refundable) and is due when you enroll in a payment plan. A payment equal to 34 percent of your tuition bill is also required at the time you enroll in a payment plan unless your financial aid has been officially awarded. A $15 fee will be charged for each late payment.

When are payments due? Payments are due monthly. The final payment is due in October for Fall plans, in March for Spring plans. Please note: Failure to meet the college’s payment deadlines can subject your entire semester’s registration to cancellation. Without exception, once your registration has been cancelled, you won’t be able to re-register for your classes unless space is available.
