    Additional Notes Regarding Payment

    • Personal checks are accepted as payment of tuition and fees. A charge of $50 is assessed for each check returned unpaid by the bank. The College reserves the right to exclude the use of personal checks and may require payment by certified check or money order if an account is more than 90 days in arrears.
    • Students in arrears to the College may not obtain academic transcripts or be permitted to register for additional semesters until all prior balances are paid in full. Payments received for new enrollments will be applied to any outstanding balance due.
    • Delinquency of outstanding balances, including those from payment plans, financial aid reductions, or third party billings, are subject to collection by the College or it’s designated agents. There is no statute of limitations for outstanding financial obligations to the College. Student accounts that are sent to a collection agency may be subject to additional collection costs.

    Past Due Payment

    Students no longer with access to their MMC account will have to mail in their payment or call the Center for Student Services at 212-517-0500 for further assistance.

  • Refund Policy

    Students with credit balances resulting from excess financial aid funds, tuition cancellations, etc., will have a refund processed within 14 days from the date of the credit balance appearing on their account.

    MMC offers students the ability to have their refund automatically credited to their designated bank account through E refunds.  To begin the process, follow the steps below.

    • Log onto MMC Connect
    • Under the ‘Financial Information’ section, select ‘Bank Information (U.S.)’ and follow the on screen instructions.
    • Once you complete the online registration, a confirmation email will be sent to your MMC email address. 

    Students not enrolled in electronic refunds will have their refund  check mailed to the permanent home address on file. Students may request to apply their credit balance to future semester charges by completing the appropriate authorization form at the Center for Student Services.

    When a student’s registration status changes and he/she is a recipient of financial aid funds, the student’s record must be reviewed by a financial aid counselor before a refund can be issued. Credit balances resulting from the disbursement of Parent Plus Loans will be refunded to the borrower if the loan is greater than the students institutional charges.  If the parent would like the refund to go directly to the student, written authorization must be submitted to the Center for Student Services. 

  • Withdrawal & Cancellation Policy

    Tuition Refund Insurance Plan
    Marymount Manhattan College offers a tuition protection option, through Sallie Mae Insurance. The Student Protection Plan is an elective insurance coverage that provides tuition protection if your student is unable to complete classes for the academic term due to a covered medical reason. You can access plan information at


    An official withdrawal from any or all classes does not always entitle a student to a refund of tuition and fees paid or a reduction of costs incurred.

    It is important to note that the College assesses charges and cancellations based upon tuition commitments for the full semester. The effective date of withdrawal and cancellation, if any, will be the date when a student files a formal application with the Center for Student Services.

    If a student withdraws from one or more classes, during the drop/add period but does not drop below full-time status(12-15 credits) no forfeiture of tuition will be charged.  If a student withdraws from one or more classes and becomes less than full-time, forfeiture will be charged for the difference between full and part-time tuition rates using the schedule for partial withdrawals.

    After the census date, students who did not attend classes and did not officially withdraw from MMC will be assessed 25% of their tuition charge as forfeiture.  Failure to attend classes or to make payment does not constitute an official withdrawal.

    To be awarded MMC Institutional Aid including academic scholarships, all students are required to maintain full time status (12 credits or more).  A student who fails to register full time, drops to part time status or withdraws completely prior to the census date will forfeit their institutional scholarships and grants for that semester.  If in a subsequent semester, the student returns to full time status, their aid can then be reinstated for the new semester.  Reinstatement will be based on meeting the funds eligibility requirements and the availability of funds at the time of reinstatement

    Students are considered in attendance until they officially withdraw from school or are requested to do so by a Dean. Students, who leave school voluntarily or drop a course, must do so through the proper channels or otherwise risk assuming full tuition charges. Students who fail to formally withdraw may also be responsible for repaying all or part of the financial aid funds received in the term.

    Steps in Withdrawal Process:

    • The student must complete a Withdrawal form available in the Office of Academic Advisement.
    • The signed Withdrawal form is processed in the Center for Student Services.
    • The student’s financial aid eligibility may be revised, subject to federal, state and institutional refund policies. The refund policy is listed below and is published in the College Catalogue. Fees are not refundable.
    • Consult the College Catalogue for additional details regarding withdrawal procedures

    Students receiving financial aid who withdraw from school completely will have their tuition liability calculated based on the federal formula for Title IV withdrawals. Please refer to the “Return of Federal Aid Policy”. Students using payment plans or receiving financial aid are responsible for completing all payments if a balance exists after cancellation of tuition. Please note that all fees are non-refundable after the first day of the semester and only tuition will be canceled according to the following schedule:

    Dining Dollars for Residential Students:

    All residential students are required to participate in the Dining Dollars program with a  minimum charge of $1000 each semester(Fall & Spring). When applying for housing, resident students select the desired amount of Dining Dollars. Residents who do not make a selection will automatically be enrolled in the minimum charge per semester. The Dining Dollars amount the student selects for the fall semester will automatically be charged to the resident’s account for the spring semester. Should the resident wish to change their Dining Dollars amount, the student must notify the Office of Residence Life via their MMC email account by the end of the add/drop period.

    The College will carry-over any remaining Dining Dollars in a student’s account at the end of the fall semester and add it to the required Spring semester amount. At the end of the spring semester, any unused Dining Dollars will remain available for future use.  Balances will continue to carry-over from semester to semester until the student graduates or withdraws from the college, at which time all remaining Dining Dollars funds will be forfeited.
