Refunds and Drops
Refunds/Dropping a Class
Adding a class obligates the student to pay tuition and any fees for the class. Refunds are granted when the student (or in some cases, an authorized College official) drops the class within the refund period in one of the following ways: online, by mail, or by phone or in person with the staff in the Admissions, Registration and Records Office.
The refund deadline is the end of the seventh calendar day of the term (or the equivalent for non-standard length classes). Tuition and fee charges will be removed from classes dropped by the refund deadline and the classes will not be recorded on the MHCC transcript.
Non-attendance is not a basis for a refund or non-payment of tuition. Students signing a deferment of payments are still liable for paying tuition and fees in the agreed upon time unless they drop the class within the refund period.
When students officially drop after the refund period, tuition and fee charges remain and a “W” for “withdrawn” will be assigned by the Admissions, Registration and Records Office in lieu of a grade. "W” is not a grading option for an instructor, as it is not a grade but rather an enrollment (withdrawal) indicator. The College will place a financial hold on student accounts for past due tuition and fee charges. This hold will block any future registration and the issuance of official transcripts until the debt is paid in full.
Students receiving veterans’ benefits also must notify the veterans’ clerk of intention to withdraw. Failure to do so may result in overpayment which will need to be returned to the Veterans Administration.
Students may drop any single class through the Friday of the seventh week of instruction (or equivalent for non-standard length classes). After the seventh week, students may officially withdraw from all classes, but may not drop just one class, unless they are only enrolled in one class.
Course cancellations by the College will result in a 100 percent refund providing a refund is due.
