Convenience Fee Notice: Beginning November 2, 2021, a non-refundable convenience (service) fee of 2.85% or a minimum of $3.00, whichever one is greater, applies to all payments made by credit/debit card for Meridian Community College tuition, fees, and other student account charges.

It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from any and all courses. Refunds of fees are computed according to the instructor’s recorded last date of class attendance. Attendance in an online course is measured by active participation in the course (i.e., submission of weekly assignments). Any claims disputing actual class attendance and requests for exceptions because of extenuating circumstances must be submitted in writing to Business Office within 90 days after the end of the semester of withdrawal. Any exception to this policy must be approved by an administrative committee. The College will not refund fees originally paid by check until the check has successfully cleared the student’s bank.
Students receiving any type of financial aid, including grants, loans, scholarships
or veterans’ benefits, must consult with a Financial Aid Office staff member before
dropping any course.

Textbooks and supplies for MCC courses may be purchased at the Eagle's Nest Bookstore located on the first floor of Ivy-Scaggs Hall.
Bookstore hours are 8:00am-4:30pm Monday through Thursday, and 8:00am-3:30pm on Friday.
During the first week of classes, the Bookstore has extended hours to accommodate evening students.
Students receiving financial aid (Pell Grants, scholarships, etc.) should direct financial aid questions to the Financial Aid Office. Financial aid will become active in the Bookstore approximately three days before classes begin in the fall and spring terms. Dates for late start, short terms and summer terms will be posted.
Students will need to present their Student I.D. and a copy of their schedule to use their financial aid and to receive textbooks in the Bookstore.
The Bookstore also carries a variety of sportswear, supplies, snacks, specialty gifts, balloons and novelty items.
Any outstanding and past due amounts owed to the College must be paid in full before a student may register for additional courses. All payments received on student accounts will be applied in the same order in which the charges were incurred. A student who has a hold on his/her account because of any overdue account may not receive a transcript or a diploma, or view mid-term grades on Eaglenet until the account is cleared.
The administrative authorities of the College will withhold transcripts and diplomas, degree certification, letters of “good standing,” and other certification of enrollment and deny readmission of any student who incurs an overdue financial obligation to the College.
The student’s records may be cleared and a diploma or transcript released when the debt is paid in full. The respective College department or agency will notify the College Registrar when the debt has been paid. MCC reserves the right when payment is made by check for releases not to be made until 10 business days after check has been deposited.
