Students are classified as residents or non-residents for the purpose of assessing tuition.
To qualify to register for resident tuition rates at MCC, students must meet one of the following criteria.
- Have a Nebraska mailing address (P.O. Box not acceptable).
- Are a minor whose parents or legal guardians have a Nebraska mailing address (P.O. Box not acceptable).
- Are married to a spouse who has a Nebraska mailing address (P.O. Box not acceptable).
- Have attended or graduated from a Nebraska secondary school during the school year immediately prior to registration at MCC.
Individuals who do not qualify for the resident tuition rates are considered non-residents and their tuition assessed according to the non-resident tuition schedule.
International students on visas (such as F, J, or H visas) are charged the non-resident tuition rate.

Books and materials
Students are expected to obtain books, supplies, and consumable materials needed for classes. In addition, some programs require the purchase of special items such as tools, camera, etc. A complete listing of special costs is available at Student Services.
Student liability insurance program
Students enrolling in certain health occupations and Human Services programs requiring clinical practice, laboratory work, or experiences that place students in the position of providing patient care must be covered by a student liability insurance program. The specific policy is determined by the College with the cost paid by students as part of the fee assessed upon initial enrollment in the clinical, laboratory, or patient care class.
Students must meet all financial obligations each quarter by the payment due date by paying all money due to MCC. This includes tuition, fees, fines, charges for unreturned library books, and any other financial obligations by the payment due date. Students with delinquent accounts are not permitted to enroll in succeeding quarters, are not entitled to transcripts, are not permitted to graduate, and, if currently enrolled, may be disenrolled.
After registration, students are billed for their tuition a few weeks before the quarter starts. Tuition can be paid by credit card, check, cash, or deferred payment.
Discover, MasterCard, and Visa credit card payments are accepted:
- in person at Student Services;
- via phone at 402-457-5231, 402-457-2405 or toll-free (800) 228-9553; or
- on MCC's website via My Services (student username and PIN are required for online payment).

An official schedule change that reduces or terminates a student's credit load may entitle the student to a refund. The eligibility and amount of a refund is automatically calculated by the date of the withdrawal. Amount of refund is based on number of sessions that met as of the withdrawal date to the total number of scheduled sessions for the course. For refund or account questions call: 402-457-2405 or 1-800-228-9553.
Students who feel individual circumstances warrant exceptions from this policy may file a records action appeal. Instructions for this appeal are online at www.mccneb.edu/sos/records.asp.
Students are responsible for dropping the course(s) if unable to attend. Non-attendance does not relieve students from the obligation to pay.
Note: Changes in a student's schedule may have implications for the student's financial aid. Check with the Financial Aid office prior to any schedule changes.
