Payments, withdrawals, and refunds

Payments

Tuition and applicable fees are due and payable on a semester basis, prior to the following deadlines:

All campuses:

Fall semester: August 1
Spring semester: December 1
Summer semester: May 1

Students not adhering to these deadlines may be administratively withdrawn from the University. For students with outstanding balances, the University reserves the right to refuse:

a) official transcripts,
b) diploma certifying graduation,
c) letters to complete board examination certification, or
d) registration for any additional coursework.

Students may view their E-bill through the Student Account Center portal. Students are notified at their MCPHS email address when a new bill is available for viewing. The Student Account Center also contains a real-time view of your student account and allows you to make your tuition payment or set up a payment plan. All of this can be accessed 24/7 and students can grant access to other bill payers.

Late fees

A late payment fee will be assessed for all outstanding balances immediately following the due date.

Late Payment Fee: $500
Late Registration Fee: $150
Returned Check Fee: $30

The University reserves the right to adjust these fees in accordance with possible rate changes.

Make a payment

Students and families have the convenient option of making online payments at www.mcphs.afford.com. To do so, choose the “Make a Payment” option and then follow the appropriate prompts. In addition to making credit card payments online, students and families can also pay using a checking or savings account.

Payment plans (interest free)

Students in good financial standing interested in spreading out their educational payments across each semester may utilize the services of Tuition Management Systems (TMS). You can contact them by calling 800.722.4867 or by visiting www.mcphs.afford.com. Access to payment plans is also available through the Student Account Center portal.

Withdrawals

The following graduated scale of charges for tuition and residence hall fees is used for the purposes of determining refunds for students withdrawing entirely from the University during the semester.

Period of attendance 
Refund

Drop/Add period 

100% 

First week after the Drop/Add period 

75% 

Second week after the Drop/Add period 

50% 

Third week after the Drop/Add period 

25% 

Fourth week and beyond after the Drop/Add period  

0% 

Students who withdraw from the University must contact Academic Support Services at the time of withdrawal and complete an official form. Approved refunds are computed on the basis of the date appearing on the form. Absence from class without completing the form does not constitute withdrawal from the university.

Drop/add period

During the drop/add period, courses are fully refundable for a course withdrawal. Tuition accounts are adjusted automatically, and any additional charges must be paid at the time of the transaction. After the drop/add deadline, there will be no tuition refund for individual course withdrawal.

Refunds

Student refunds are available as soon as administratively possible after the completion of the drop/add period each semester following verification of student enrollment and disbursement of financial aid. Pending financial aid may require action on the part of the student prior to disbursement, which if delayed, may delay your refund. See the Student Financial Services page or contact their office with any questions related to financial aid.

Student refunds will be issued via direct deposit into a student’s checking or savings account. Students should enroll through WebAdvisor. For questions about direct deposit, enrollment, or terms and conditions, please contact Student Financial Services.
