Payment, Withdrawal and Refund Overview
When a student registers, they create an obligation to pay for all tuition and fees.
- Are responsible for all tuition and fees.
- Are responsible for meeting semester payment deadlines and must choose to pay in full, enroll in a payment plan online, complete Financial Aid or submit a Third Party Contract (employer/agency paid) by payment deadline to guarantee a seat in class, as MPTC reserves the right to drop students from courses for nonpayment.
- Are responsible for all fees not covered by Financial Aid or employer/agency contracts.
- Can check their student account information 24/7 on myMPTC Student.
Important Drop/Withdrawal Information
- MPTC will NOT drop students from courses automatically for nonattendance.
- Students are considered enrolled and responsible for all tuition and fees until online drop/withdrawal is completed or forms are submitted to Student Services.
- Students may receive a refund of tuition and fees paid if the student drops/withdraws within the stipulated allowable time frame (based on WTCS Refund Rules).
- Students may not withdraw from a course after 67 percent of the course’s duration is complete.
- Dropping classes may affect your financial aid or veterans benefits. You may be required to repay funds received. It is wise to check with the financial aid office when you consider dropping classes.
Failure to comply with the withdrawal procedure may result in a failing grade and/or negatively affect future registration and/or financial aid eligibility. Non-notification of withdrawal does not absolve a student’s responsibility for tuition and fee payments.
Tuition Refund Procedure
Refunds are processed according to the Wisconsin Technical College System refund policy. Refund amounts are based on the date of official withdrawal, the course start date and course duration.
- MPTC cancels or discontinues a class.
- Course drop is officially completed before the first class meeting.
- Course drop is officially completed before 5% of the course’s potential hours have been completed AND another class is added or “swapped” on the same day. If there is a fee difference between the dropped and added courses, students are credited or billed the difference. (This option cannot be done via self-service online. Students must go to Student Services.)
80%: Course drop is officially completed before 11% of potential class hours are completed.
60%: Course withdrawal is officially completed when 11% of the hours are completed but before 20% of potential class hours are completed.
0%: Course withdrawal is officially completed after more than 20% of the class’s total potential hours.
Tuition Refund Appeals
- Refund appeal requests are considered on rare occasion for legitimate extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the Registrar & Enrollment Services Manager. Extenuating circumstances are those situations outside of a student’s control.
- Consideration of an exception requires students submit the Withdrawal and Tuition Refund Appeal Form and official supporting documentation (i.e., medical notes, military activation orders) for review to Enrollment Services no later than sixty (60) calendar days after the class start date.
- Refund requests made after the 60-day grace period will not be accepted and students are responsible for payment.
