Students who have earned A+ at their high school may be eligible to pay using the A+ benefit. Follow these steps:
- Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). See details on the A+ financial aid tab.
- Enroll in classes. See these steps at mcckc.edu/GetStarted.
- Select "Pay by A+ benefit" as your Payment Option.
A temporary hold will be applied to your account so that you can complete the remaining steps. To see your this hold, log into your myMCCKC account, and select the Student Center Home button. The HOLDS box is on the right.
- Request a final high school transcript with the official A+ stamp to be sent to MCC.
- For additional steps to complete your Financial Aid file, monitor the “To Do List” on your Student Center Home page.
- Contact the campus business office to pay charges that are not covered by A+ before the semester begins.
Priority dates for A+ students are the same as for all students and are listed in the chart below:
If you do not meet the Priority Dates above, you will be responsible for paying tuition and fees by the MCC fee deadline (Fall is July 15; Spring is Dec. 15; Summer is May 15). You may receive a refund if you enroll and complete your financial aid and any MCC paperwork by the final A+ deadline below:
Failure to meet these deadlines will result in loss of A+ benefit for the current term of enrollment.
Know the limits of A+ :
A+ will not pay for a class (classes) if:
- You enroll after the final A+ deadline (Fall - Dec. 15; Spring - May 15; Summer - July 30).
- You are a returning student and your cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below a 2.5.
- You are repeating a class - either to change a grade (F, D, C, B, A) or because the previous class was dropped after the 100% refund period.
- You have completed 105% of the hours requried for the program in which you are currently enrolled.
- You have earned a certificate or degree.
- It has been more than 48 months since you graduated from high school.
- You are a returning student and your completion rate is below 67%.
- You are an initial student and your cumulative GPA is below 2.0.
- You drop coursework while receiving A+ benefits; your A+ benefits will be reduced by the cost of the dropped course.
- You did not complete full-time hours for the term in which you received A+ benefits. You must pay out of pocket for subsequent semesters until those hours are made up.
