Payment of Fees

Tuition and fees are due and payable to the Mountwest Business Services Office cashiering area in accordance with the due dates shown on any student billing statement, along with any due dates posted in the Mountwest office and website. If the student does not pay tuition and fees on or before the due date, the student will be charged a late fee, and the student will be withdrawn from all registered classes. If the student is able to re-enroll at Mountwest Community & Technical College, the student will pay a penalty registration fee. All bills will be sent electronically to the student’s Mountwest email address. It is the students’ responsibility to know when tuition and fees are due and to pay them by that time.

Student deferred payment plans for tuition and fees will be offered during the academic year. All available financial aid for the term must be credited to the student’s account prior to determining the amount available for deferral. Students must come in person to the Mountwest Business Services Cashier’s Office to sign up for deferred payment plans prior to any official due date.

Students may pay tuition and fees in person or online at myMCTC. Payments of cash, check, and credit are accepted in person at the Mountwest Business Services Office cashiering area.

A student’s registration is not complete until all tuition and fees are paid. Registration may be canceled if the bank does not honor the student’s check or electronic check for payment of registration fees. A charge of $25 will be assessed for each check returned unpaid by the bank.

A student who has a financial obligation to Mountwest cannot engage in any registration activity until the obligation is satisfied. Unpaid student obligations will be assigned to a collection agency. The student will communicate and pay the collection agency directly. 


Withdrawal/Reinstatement Policy 
for Nonpayment of Enrollment Fees and other Financial Obligations

  • Upon notice from the Mountwest Business Services Office, the Mountwest Registrar will initiate a complete withdrawal for a student not paying fees or other financial obligations. The withdrawal will be classified as “Administrative- Nonpayment of Enrollment,” or “Administrative Nonpayment of Financial Obligations.”  A fee of $25.00 will be charged to the student.
  • If the student fulfills the financial obligation, the Mountwest Business Services Office will notify the student Vice President for Student Services. The Vice President will have discretion to approve registration.
  • A student who owes a financial obligation to Mountwest will not be permitted to enroll in subsequent semesters or terms until the obligation is paid.
  • If a student disputes an administrative withdrawal, for financial obligations he/she may file an appeal with the Vice President for Student Services.
