Refunds

Refund Appeal Form

All students who officially withdraw from the college or individual classes by the withdrawal process, will receive a refund according to the MCCCD Official Refund Policy. Please review the complete refund policy and schedule of refunds located here. Deadlines that fall on a weekend or a college holiday will advance to the next college workday.

Refunds for students receiving federal financial assistance are subject to federal guidelines. Please contact Financial Aid for further assistance.

Debts owed to any MCCCD college must be satisfied before any refunds are paid to the student. Requests for exceptions to the refund policy must be filed within one year from the semester in which the course was taken.

NOTE: Placing a Stop Payment on your check payment does not constitute official withdrawal, and will result in additional fees and collection costs.

Special Circumstances

A request for a partial or full refund outside the above specified parameters must be made in writing to the Office of Admissions & Records for the following reasons only:

  • A student with a serious illness, verifiable by a doctor's written statement that the illness prevents the student from attending all classes for the semester. The doctor's statement must be on file with the college before a refund will be approved and issued.
  • Serious illness or death of a family member that prevents the student from attending all classes for the semester. Appropriate documentation must be provided before a refund will be approved and issued.
  • Death of a student. Appropriate documentation must be provided before a refund can be approved and issued.
  • A student in the Armed Forces of the Arizona National Guard who is called to active duty and assigned to a duty station, verifiable by a copy of the orders, will be allowed to withdraw and receive a 100% refund of tuition, provided courses have not been completed. (special and miscellaneous fees will not be refunded)

How to Obtain a Refund

You must officially drop or withdraw from classes during the appropriate refund period in order to be eligible for a refund.

Refunds will be pro-rated based on the date of withdrawal during the semester.

See that refund schedule here.

Once a student has officially dropped or withdrawn from classes and is eligible for a refund they must contact Student Business Services at cashiers@mesacc.edu to receive their refund (refunds are not automatically guaranteed or generated).

Proper Identification may be required for students seeking a refund. Proper identification consists of a picture ID - Valid driver's license or state identification card, current MCC student ID card, or similar.

Credit Card Refunds are credited back to the original credit card used for payment.

Some online credit card payments require the full 16 digit credit card number and expiration date to process the refund.

Please Note

It may take up to 30 days to process a refund.
