Residency Status Changes
If your residency status changes when
you update your address from out-of-district to in-district
it is your
responsibility to report this to the Records & Registration Office. You
must provide proof of the residency change by providing a photo
id with the change, current motor vehicle registration, property
tax receipt for property tax within Mott College district, utility
bill at in-district address, signed and dated rental or lease
agreement showing address, dates of the lease, and signature/phone
number of the landlord. Students who petition to change
their residency classification to in-district
status must submit proof of in-district residence for 30
days before the first
day of a semester.
The schedule for the refund of tuition and fees
is published in the class schedule calendar each semester and session.
Students who withdraw from fall or winter semester classes
after the second week of classes will not receive refunds. Students
should be sure to check the Academic/Registration
in the class schedule booklet for specific dates.
Refund deadlines vary for each semester and session.
Tuition Appeals Policy
What is a Tuition Appeal?
Students may request a Tuition Appeal due to extenuating circumstances such as military deployment, certain medical conditions, and/or family related reasons, including change in employment. Please see the Tuition Appeal Form for further explanation and a listing of the appropriate documentation required to process your appeal.
Are you receiving Financial Aid?
Students receiving any type of Financial Aid, including loans, grants and scholarships, should be aware of their responsibility to immediately repay any unearned financial aid regardless of the outcome of a tuition appeal, including unearned financial aid refunds and bookstore charges. Rules and regulations governing Federal Financial Aid programs cannot be waived through a tuition appeal or under any other circumstances.
You may not submit an appeal if:
- Your issue is related to an academic complaint - these are handled through the Academic Divisions. The process is outlined on the Academic Complaint Procedures page.
- You fail to drop your classes within the add/drop period outlined in the class schedule. You are responsible for knowing these dates and will be obligated to pay any tuition and fees resulting from dropping after the deadline.
- It has been over 30 days from the last day of the term in which the course(s) was/were dropped. No exceptions.
- Non-payment and non-attendance are not acceptable reasons for a Tuition Appeal. You are responsible for withdrawing from all courses, regardless of attendance.
- You failed to confirm a withdrawal submitted in person or using the online registration system. It is your responsibility to follow-up on all requests and actions.
- Your request is based on acceptance into another school or incarceration – these are not accepted as valid extenuating circumstances.
- If your account is in collections, you must file a dispute with the collection agency.
- If filing an appeal for medical reasons, please provide dates of medical treatment, along with a letter from your doctor stating the nature of your condition and what functional limitations exist. Hospital and medical records may be used.
- Filing an appeal does not relieve your current obligation to Mott Community College. You are responsible for all charges assessed on your account pending a decision on your appeal.
- Failure to provide adequate documentation at the time of submission may result in denial of your appeal.
- In addition to providing supporting documentation, you must provide your own explanation as to why you are requesting a Tuition Appeal. Please be thorough.
- Printed/published material, such as registration forms, guide sheets, class schedule information, web directions and the catalog take precedence over verbal information.
- All appeals must be signed and dated. A signed application shall act as a student's release of information and consent to review academic, financial aid, registration, medical documentation and other records that are related to the appeal.
- An appeals committee will review the appeals and provide a written response within thirty (30) days. Tuition Appeal Forms can be download here
