Paperless billing

What tuition rate do you pay? To receive the in-district rate, you or your parent (if you are a dependent) will be required to document residency within the college's taxing district.

The burden of proof of eligibility for in-district tuition rests solely with the student. Presence within the taxing district for a minimum of the immediate past 12 consecutive months and proof of intent to make the taxing district a permanent home are the first criteria. Additional information for proving in-district residence is available in the Business Office in the Arts & Sciences Building.

In March 2017, Mineral Area College Board of Trustees approved the following tuition rates:

 

Tuition Rates

In-District . . . . . . . . . . . . . $110 per credit hour

Out-of-District . . . . . . . . . . $150 per credit hour

Out-of-State . . . . . . . . . .   $202 per credit hour

 

Financial Obligation - A financial obligation is incurred at the time of enrollment. Whenever you enroll for classes at Mineral Area College by either completing a paper enrollment form or enrolling via the web, it is at that point that a financial obligation has incurred. The Business Office works closely with the Financial Aid Office. If your Financial Aid file has been completed and you are eligible for financial aid, that information is accessible to the Business Office.

Payments - Payments may be made in person at the Cashier window of the Business Office during normal business hours. Payments may also be placed in the drop box located on the Business Office door. Mineral Area College accepts cash, check, money orders, as well as VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS and DISCOVER debit or credit cards.

Payments may also be made by using a credit card via the telephone or by mailing your check to the address below. Your cancelled check is your receipt. Checks must be for the exact total and must be received by the Business Office by the published deadlines.

***NOTE*** Please include your student ID number on your check!
