Tuition & Fees FAQs

Q: When is tuition due, and when are statements mailed?
A: Tuition and fees are due upon registration. Statements will not be mailed for current semester charges. You can view your current account balance at any time through MyMTC.

Q: I have never attended classes, why was I charged?
A: Payment will be required if you do not attend class and do not officially withdraw by submitting the Drop/Add/Withdrawal Form to the Student Records Office. If you do not withdraw, and your classes were held by financial aid, the aid will be removed, and you will be held responsible for the tuition and fees. Please remember to submit the Drop/Add/Withdrawal Form if your schedule needs to be changed to avoid any fees.

Q: I owe the college a past due balance and cannot pay it in full, what are my options?
A: You have 90 days to pay your balance in full. If a balance remains after 90 days, the account will be moved to collection status. Once in collection status, you will need to contact the Cashier's office to make a full payment.

Q: How do I get my financial aid refund?
A: Financial aid disbursements are refunded to you via BankMobile.  To view our institution's contract with BankMobile, a Division of Customer Bank, click here
