Helpful Information

Most dual credit students will pay at least a portion of their tuition and fees. Failure to make the required payment will result in being dropped from the college course. 

How to Pay

There are a few dual credit programs that do not require student payment. These are small in number and students should check with their high school counselor and Midland College to confirm. Please assume that you will need to pay at least a portion of your tuition and fees until you receive confirmation that your balance is zero.
