Tuition and fees are established by the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE) and are subject to change without notice.
For a complete list see http://www.MorganCC.edu/admissions/tuition-and-fees
Tuition, fees, and other charges are to be paid at the time of registration or by 5:00 p.m. the Monday two weeks before the first day of the semester, regardless of the start date of the course(s) for that semester. Payment for enrollment after that day is due within 24 hours.
If full payment is not made, students may be dropped from all enrolled courses and other students will be allowed to enroll in the vacated spaces. Financial Aid students who do not have their financial aid complete by these deadlines, or non-financial aid students who are unable to pay by the deadlines should contact the MCC Accounting Office if they are interested in the deferred payment plan (FACTS).
If the student is not planning to attend MCC, he/she must log on to his/her student account at MyMCC and drop the classes by the published add/drop date for the course. Even though MCC intends to drop students for non-payment, the College cannot guarantee the classes will be dropped for unpaid accounts. Students are responsible for dropping courses even if they do not pay on time and will be responsible for any balances owed for classes that were not dropped.
See PAYMENT & REFUND POLICIES, DEFERRED PAYMENT PLAN and TUITION CLASSIFICATION for additional information regarding tuition, fees, refunds, and rules regarding how a student is determined to have in-state status at a Colorado college
Financial obligations are due and payable to the College when incurred and are payable on the established dates. An authorized third-party may be billed for tuition and fees, however ultimate responsibility for payment remains with the student. Students who are financially obligated to MCC – whether through a student loan, a third-party promise-to-pay, outstanding deferred payment, or failure to account for college property in their possession (including library materials) – are not issued an official transcript, diploma, nor allowed to register again at MCC nor at any CCCS college until payment is made.
Financial aid students who have not submitted complete financial aid applications two weeks prior to the beginning of the term must make payment arrangements with the Accounting Office. If sufficient financial aid has not been awarded to cover the cost of tuition and fees, students must then pay 50% of all tuition and fees by the tuition payment due date, and follow the deferred payment plan (FACTS) for the balance (including the payment of a processing fee at that time.)
The state of Colorado pays a portion of the total cost of higher education for Colorado residents attending Colorado public institutions for their undergraduate degrees. Students must request the state-pay portion of their tuition, but they only need to apply once. Students must authorize the use of funds at each school attended. At Morgan Community College, students can authorize COF through their online MyMCC student account.
TO ENROLL IN COF:
Applicants will need a Social Security number or alien registration number and must provide one of four types of identification:
HOW THE COLLEGE OPPORTUNITY FUND WORKS:
The information provided on the COF application will be verified by the Colorado Department of Education.
The state of Colorado historically subsidized higher education for in-state students by giving money directly to the colleges. In 2004 the Colorado legislature enacted a law establishing the College Opportunity Fund (COF). Under this law, the State gives a stipend to Colorado resident students who apply for it and sends the stipend directly to the student’s account at the institution the student designates. The COF stipend appears as a credit on the student’s tuition bill. Students create a lifetime COF account by going to the MCC website home page www.MorganCC.edu and clicking on the COF icon and following the steps listed. Thereafter, each semester a student registers for college courses the student specifies which college will receive their COF stipend. The stipend amount will appears as a credit on the student's tuition bill each semester.
The college provides a deferred payment plan for tuition and fees. With a deferred payment plan, students can pay tuition and fees with an initial down payment and two installments. (Books and supplies may not be deferred.) Any enrolled student who has not abused the deferred payment terms in a prior semester or has not been sent to collections is eligible to use a deferred payment plan.
FACTS PAYMENT POLICIES & INSTALLMENT PAYMENT DATES
Payment of balance in
TWO equal installments as follows:
October 5 & November 5
March 5 & April 5
July 5 (1 installment)
NOTE: If a student drops/withdraws from courses after the refund deadlines, he/she is still responsible for completing FACTS payments.
Students receive all refunds from MCC on a Colorado Community College System (CCCS) Refund debit card. The card is mailed to the student directly from Higher One and must be activated online by the student. This is the only means of refund employed by the College.
CCCS Refund Debit Card is utilized by MCC Accounting to issue refunds for:
Students should activate their card immediately after it is received in the mail. Upon activation, students will be asked to select their preferred method of receiving MCC refunds. They can choose "Easy Refund" or have funds directly deposited into their existing bank account, among other options.
Activation links can be found at the MCC website, MyMCC student accounts, and at https://morgan.higheroneaccount.com/
Students should access their MyMCC student account and verify that MCC has their current mailing address. An incorrect mailing address will delay receipt of refunds and a fee is charged by Higher One to replace lost cards sent to the wrong address.
Students should keep their card, even if they are not expecting a refund or financial aid remainder balance. There may be a refund due to them in the future, and Higher One only issues one free card. Cards after the initial mailing are issued at a cost to the student by Higher One.
To end enrollment in one or more courses, students must officially drop or withdraw from courses via the MCC website or submit the correct form to the Student Services Office or MCC Center by the published deadline. Nonattendance in courses does not automatically drop nor withdraw a student from a course nor change financial obligations incurred. Deadlines for drop and withdrawal of each course are listed on the student’s course schedule which is available on the MyMCC student account. Dropping or withdrawing from courses may affect a student’s financial aid status. Financial aid students should contact the Financial Aid Office for policy information.
Students must officially drop college courses by accessing their MyMCC student account or by processing the required form in the Student Services Office or MCC Centers on or before the refund deadline for the course. Students completing the proper steps may be eligible for a refund of tuition and fees.
100 percent (100%) of tuition and fees (except the deferral fee) are refunded via HigherOne debit card if a student drops courses before the refund deadline period for the course. The refund deadline is calculated as 15 percent (15%) of the instructional days for the course. No tuition and fee refunds are granted after the refund deadline. Exceptions to the Institutional Refund Policy should be referred to the Controller.
Financial Aid Students: If you drop or withdraw from courses you may have to repay financial aid. Information about repayment of Title IV funds and refunds is listed in the Financial Aid Section of this catalog.
Students must officially withdraw from college courses by processing their withdrawal online or by completing the required form in the Student Services Office or MCC Centers during the stated withdrawal period. Each student’s course schedule lists the drop/refund deadline and the withdrawal deadlines by course. Students who drop course(s) or request withdrawal from course(s) after the drop/refund deadlines but before the listed wthdrawal deadline are graded with a withdrawal "W" grade and are not eligible for any refund. The advantage to requesting a withdrawal as opposed to failing a course by nonattendance is that the "W" grade is not computed into the student’s overall GPA.
Financial Aid Students: Dropping or withdrawing from course(s) may require you to repay financial aid. Information about repayment of Title IV funds and refunds is listed in the Financial Aid Section of this catalog.
Occasionally the college must cancel courses due to enrollment numbers, instructor issues, etc. The college will automatically process the drop for students registered for courses which are canceled. 100% of paid tuition and fees is refunded for any course canceled by the college.
Financial Aid Students: Canceled courses may require re-payment of financial aid. Information about repayment of Title IV funds and refunds is listed in the FINANCIAL AID section of this catalog.
Returned checks constitute non-payment. If a check is returned prior to the official refund deadline due to non-sufficient funds or stop payment, students may be dropped from all courses and could be charged a bad check fee. Students must pay the registration fee and the deferred payment fee if applicable. A hold at MCC and at all CCCS Colleges is placed on the student’s account until fees are paid. If a check is returned after the official refund deadline, students are not dropped from courses. Students are responsible for all outstanding tuition, fees, bad check fees, and resulting collection charges. A hold at MCC and at all CCCS Colleges is placed on grades, transcripts, diplomas, and future registration until the debt is paid. Unpaid balances resulting from returned checks are pursued by the college and a collections service.
In accordance with State policy, all delinquent student obligations, including those from improper withdrawal/drop procedures and the loss of previously awarded financial aid, are referred to the State’s central collections service. Additional interest and collection costs will be charged to the student account.
MCC Accounting Services Offices are located in the lower level of Aspen Hall and house the offices of the MCC Controller, Accounts Receivable, and Accounts Payable. Accounting Services assist students, staff, and vendors with billing and payment questions. Accounting Services provide forms to students who wish to apply to the MCC deferred payment plan for tuition (FACTS), and assist students with questions regarding their HigherOne refund debit card.
