Refunds – Fees Students requesting refunds of the Student Center Use Fee, Health Fee, Student Body Fee, and/or Student Representation Fee, must drop all courses before the end of the second week of instruction for semester- length courses, and by the second class meeting for courses that are more than one week in length but less than a semester. The same applies to the Enrollment Fee and material charges. Refunds will not be authorized for courses not dropped by the appropriate deadline. A refund processing fee of $10 per semester/session may be withheld from the refund of the Enrollment Fee for courses dropped that have not been canceled by the College. Refund Request Process It is the student’s responsibility to drop courses by the correct deadline. Only Enrollment Fees are automatically refunded. A Refund Request form, available on our website and at the Admissions and Records Office, must be completed and submitted to the Admissions and Records Office before the end of the semester or session in which a refund is due; otherwise no refund will be made. Any fee/tuition collected for a class that is canceled by the College or collected in error is refundable upon application. Requests for refunds must be made ONLY through the Admissions and Records Office. Refund checks are mailed or credited to credit card accounts by Fiscal Services. Canceled Classes Any fee/tuition collected for a class that is canceled by the College or that is collected in error is refundable upon request. Refund Request forms are available at the Admissions and Records Office and on the MPC website. Exception to the Refund of Fees Policy Any exception to the refund policy, because of extenuating circumstances, may be made to the Academic Council, upon student petition, before the end of the semester/session in which the refund is being requested. Academic Council petitions are available at the Admissions and Records Office and on the MPC website.

What is Financial Aid? Financial aid is a resource that is used to supplement, not replace, the financial responsibility of the family. These funds can assist a student in covering the cost of attendance such as tuition, fees, room and board, transportation and miscellaneous expenses. Assistance is available from a variety of programs funded by federal, state, institutional, and private sources.
