Payment Policy

  • Beginning with the Spring 2011 Semester, Veteran Students who have submitted the Request for Certification of VA Benefits and do not have financial aid on file,  will be allowed to defer their full tuition/fees without incurring a penalty or having to pay a payment plan fee.  The deferment is effective until the midpoint of the semester (i.e., Fall/Spring Semesters 8th week; Summer Semester 4th week).  All tuition/fees are due and payable on or before the midpoint of each semester. Failure to do so, will result in monthly service charges of .75%.  At the end of each semester, account balances are referred to a collection agency and are subject to MO State Tax Interception.

     

    Students who have submitted the Request for Certification of VA Benefits will not be dropped for non-payment.  Therefore, students are reminded that if they decide not to attend, they must complete a total withdrawal form in the Student Services Office.

     

    The Business Office no longer sends out paper statements to students.  To view your account online, log on to MyMAC.  Click “My Account Info” tab at top of page, click “Term Billing Statements” at left of page, then click the specific term, and then click specific term again.  Students are reminded that they should check their campus email and MyMac frequently for important information.
