Refunds

  1. The application fee is not refundable.
  2. Refunds after the published deadlines will not be considered for reasons which are beyond the control of the college. (Not attending the first class, job transfers, changes in work schedule, etc., will not be considered grounds for appeal.)
  3. Stopping payment on a check or credit card does not constitute official withdrawal and will result in additional fees and collection costs.
  4. Exceptions for refunds can be granted during the first half of the term for induction of the student into the U.S. Armed Forces; death of the student's spouse, child, parent or legal guardian; death of the student; verifiable error on the part of the institution; and verifiable incapacity, illness or injury which prevents the student from returning to school for the remainder of the semester.
  5. No refund is made after the first half of the term.
  6. Refunds are made to the student or to the contributing party in proportion to the payment of original fees made by each.
  7. Students are responsible for either paying for, or officially dropping from each class in which they register even if they do not attend. If a student fails to drop during the full refund period they will be responsible for all tuition and fees.
  8. Refund checks are issued at the end of the third week of instruction.

Enrollment/Admission

The open door admission policy of TMCC encourages the entire community to become involved in the college's programs. All adults 18 years or older, or those who are high school graduates or the equivalent, and who are United States citizens or immigrants may enroll in the college.

High school students, international students and non-immigrants may also be eligible by providing additional documentation with their application.

Special Admission Programs

Health Sciences Programs -- Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Paramedic, and Radiologic Technology require a special admission process. For more information, contact Admissions and Records.

International Students -- Students who are not U.S. citizens or immigrants can get the International Student Admission Form. For more information, contact International Admissions.

Early admission for youth and high school students -- High school juniors and seniors can be considered for credit classes. Students below high school junior standing may take community services classes on an audit basis only. Students who have been excused from compulsory attendance on the condition of equivalent instruction outside the school may also be admitted. Contact Admissions and Records to receive the correct form. Refer to Appendix A of TMCC's Course Catalog for details.

Release of Student Information

Access to Student Education Records -- In accordance with the Family Education Rights to Privacy Act (FERPA) on access to student records, information about a student generally may not be released to a third party without the student's signed release (exceptions under the law include state and federal educational and financial aid institutions). The policy also permits students to review their educational records and to challenge the contents of those records.

Some student information--name, address, telephone number, dates of enrollment and enrollment status (full-time, part-time, not enrolled, withdrawn and date of withdrawal), college and class, major, and degrees earned--is considered public or directory information. Students may prevent the release of public information only during their terms of enrollment. To do so, the student must notify the Admissions and Records office.

Students are notified annually of their right to review their educational records. The regents' policy, including a directory of student records, is available for review in the College Catalog. Inquiries may be directed to the Director of Admissions and Records, Red Mountain Building, room 319.
