Housing Refund Policy - Students Withdrawing from School
A portion of housing rent may be refunded to any student who withdraws officially from Mid-Plains Community College within the time specified below: (first class date to date of official withdrawal). Students who prematurely discontinue their housing contract but remain enrolled in the college shall be responsible for the remaining term(s) outlined in the contract.
To receive a full refund of housing deposit and charges, students shall notify the Director of Housing in writing of their intent not to honor their housing contract. To be eligible for such full refund, the student shall provide such written notification at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the start of the housing contract.
If they have been placed on a wait list, students who terminate their pending housing contract shall not be assessed any housing or board charges.

Tuition Refund Policy
Any student dropping a class before the class starts will receive 100% refund of tuition and fees. After a class begins, students who discontinue their studies may receive a full or prorated refund of tuition and fees. The method of computation will be the amount of time the student attends as a percentage of the total course length. The drop/ withdrawal date will be the date the student provides the College Registration and Records Office with an official written request. The failure of the student to attend a class does not dismiss a student’s responsibility to pay an unpaid balance owed to the college on courses not officially dropped. Official Registration/Registration Change forms are available at campus Welcome Centers or within the college website at http://www.mpcc.edu. All days are included in the computation including Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
A student is entitled to a refund computed on the following formula and tables:
(Drop/Withdraw Date) - (Course Start Date) = Elapsed Time
(Course End Date) - (Course Start Date)
Percent of Days Elapsed Refund
|Drops:||12.5% (census date)||100% (tuition/fees)|
|Withdrawals:||25%||60% (tuition only)|
One and two day classes are excluded from refunds after the beginning session. In order to receive a refund, a student must contact their advisor to complete the drop/ withdraw process. Students who have credit balances will receive a refund within 60 days.
A student whose account is delinquent may be subject to the following:
- Final grade reports will be withheld.
- Registration for a succeeding semester will not be allowed.
- A transcript will not be issued.
- The student will not be permitted to graduate.
Returned (Insufficient) Checks
Insufficient fund checks returned to the college will be processed through CHECKMATE and an additional $33 processing fee will be assessed to the original amount.
