Tuition & Fees
It is the responsibility of each student attending Midland College to register under the proper residence classification and pay the correct tuition and fees. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rule 21.731 requires each student applying to enroll at an institution to respond to a set of core residency questions for the purpose of determining the student's eligibility for classification as a resident. This questionnaire, along with other pertinent residency information, is available in the Enrollment Services Office and on the Midland College website.
An In-District student is a Texas resident who physically resides within the geographic boundaries of the Midland College District, excluding student housing or residence halls.
To qualify for In-District residency a student:
- Must have been classified as a Texas resident
- Have been a resident of the Midland College taxing district for a period of six months before first enrollment
A student may reclassify from Out-of-District to In-District status, with the appropriate documentation, after six months residency in the Midland College taxing district.
A Texas resident who does not physically reside within the geographic boundaries of the Midland College taxing district will pay Out-of-District tuition. Aliens living in the United States under a visa must meet the same tuition residency requirements as do U.S. citizens. A permanent resident must meet the same length of residency requirements as a citizen. A student may reclassify from Out-of-District to In-District status, with appropriate documentation, after six months residency in the Midland College District. A listing of those documents which can be accepted for the purpose of residency classification is available in the Enrollment Services Office.
out-of-district resident with in-district property subject to tax
The Midland College Board has adopted Section 130.0032, Subchapter A, of the Texas Education Code that permits a person who resides outside of the Midland College District and who owns property subject to ad valorem taxation by the Midland College District, or a dependent of the person, to pay tuition at the rate applicable to a student who resides in the district. To qualify for this benefit, the property owner or dependent must provide the Enrollment Services Office with a copy of a Notice of Appraised Value Statement from the Midland Central Appraisal District in the property owner or dependent's name that shows Midland College as one of the taxing units.
Students who enroll both in a community college and a senior college or university should register for the community college courses first. After that has been completed, they should take their receipt to the senior college or university and register. This may result in savings of tuition and fees.
Senior Citizen Discount
Midland College offers senior citizens an exemption from the payment of general use fees when they enroll in credit classes. To be eligible for the exemption, students must be sixty-five years of age or older and pay tuition costs plus any lab fees. All other Midland College policies apply.
Excess Undergraduate Credit Hours (Texas Education Code 61.0595)
A Texas resident who has taken more semester credit hours than the minimum required for a bachelor's degree may be required to pay non-resident tuition rates for the excess hours. Attempted hours include all hours earned at public community colleges and universities, but do not include developmental or technical education hours.
Students enrolled before the Fall 2006 have a limit of 45 semester credit hours above the minimum required for the bachelor's degree. Students enrolled beginning in Fall 2006 have a limit of 30 semester credit hours above the minimum required for a bachelor's degree. Additional information provided in the Texas Education Code 61.0595.
Additional Charge for Payment Plans
- Students may pay tuition and fees and/or room and board on an installment basis. These
require two separate payment plans. A $30.00 processing fee is charged for each plan.
- The student can execute an installment agreement through their My MC Portal account.
Different payment plan options are available, based on the time of registration.
- Tuition for flex-entry courses may not be paid in installments unless registered for
prior to the census date of the term for which the flex course is included.
- Failure to pay the complete balance may result in denial of course credit for that
semester. Students withdrawing from the College must pay all amounts owed. Withdrawal
does not cancel or void the installment payment plan contract.
- Contact the cashier’s office, (432) 685-4531 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to discuss any changes made to your student account.
- Please be aware that refunds are made according to the date that classes officially
begin rather than the date the student enrolls.
- All tuition and fee refunds must be initiated by the student.
- The date on the drop slip will determine the date of withdrawal and the amount of refund.
Dropping or Withdrawing
A student wishing to drop a course may do so through My MC Portal or by contacting their advisor. No longer attending class does not automatically constitute drop/withdraw from the class, nor does a student's notification to an instructor that the student wishes to drop/withdraw. If a student fails to properly drop/withdraw, the student is financially responsible for the course(s).
If a class is cancelled by the college, all tuition and fees for that course will be refunded.
*** PLEASE NOTE ***
Although Midland College may remove a student from a course(s) due to non-payment, the student must make certain they are not enrolled if they no longer wish to attend. If the student remains enrolled it will be the students' responsibility to cover tuition. A hold will be placed on the account, preventing future enrollment.
Refunds for installment agreements will first be applied to total balances. Refunds will be the applicable percentage of the total tuition and refundable fees due for the semester, less any amount not paid. If a student has paid less than the amount due after applying the applicable refund percentage, the student is required to pay the balance.
Late fees and payment contract fees are nonrefundable.
Refunds will be processed 7 to 10 business days after the final day of the refund period.
Students who officially drop or withdraw from the institution will have their tuition
and certain fees refunded according to the following schedule:
