Course Drop or Withdrawal:
Students MUST notify Community Education in writing via email:

Program instructors are not responsible for reporting decisions to withdraw. Lack of attendance, course abandonment or failure to make or complete payment does not constitute official course withdrawal and students will be charged for the course. This applies to all Community Education online and on-campus classes.

Refunds are processed according to the above schedule.

Third Party Invoice or Employer Billing: If your employer would like to be invoiced by MCC for your tuition/fees for any non-credit course, please provide the following billing information upon enrollment: Company Name, Company Representative Name, Company Address, Company Phone, and Company Rep Email. MCC will invoice the employer directly.

Note: Ultimately, students are solely responsible and obligated for the timely and complete payment of their student account, regardless of any reliance on third-party resources, including but not limited to family gifts, employer reimbursement, or any other external resource.
