Please note that generally Spring classes are billed in December before classes begin and those tuition and fee charges will most likely be included on your prior year 1098-T form. If you select a year to retrieve your form and all you receive is a blank page, you were not issued a 1098-T form for that calendar year. The timing of the Spring billing may be the reason. Please check you semester statements under Student Accounts.

If you have questions, please refer to our 1098T FAQ

Tuition and Fees are 100% refundable until the official drop date listed for each course on the student schedule. No refunds of tuition and fees will be made for withdrawals.

Refunds are processed after the conclusion of the drop/add period.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. When should I set up the payment plan?
 As soon as you register.  The earlier you set it up, the smaller the down payment and the more months you have to make the payments.  You must comply with the college due dates for tuition payments in order to remain registered for the semester.
 
2.  How do I set up a payment plan?  
Payment plans are set up through a student's my.montcalm.edu account.  After logging in, the payment plan link is found by choosing the Finances tab, then the "Setup/Manage Nelnet Payment Plan" in the green box on the left side of the page.
Select "2018-2019 Fall" from the drop down menu.
Choose "Please click here to setup or manage your Nelnet Enterprise payment plan" and provide all the information requested.
Note: Be sure to print a confirmation before exiting Nelnet.
 
3. What do I do if my amount due changes as a result of a registration change after I have set up my payment plan?   
Your Nelnet account will automatically adjust to cover your new semester balance, but the adjustments are not immediate. (Updates must be completed in your MCC student account before your Nelnet plan will be updated.)
 
4. What if I need to change my debit/credit card or bank account information?     
Log into your my.montcalm.edu account.
Choose the "Finances" tab.
Choose "Setup/Manage Nelnet Payment Plan" in the green box at the left.
Choose "Please click here to setup or manage your Nelnet Enterprise payment plan."
Choose the "Actions" drop down menu.
Choose "Change Financial Account."
 
5. What if I drop all my classes after I have set up a payment plan?
Your Nelnet account will automatically be adjusted and terminate. Refunds for each semester are processed approximately 1 week after the end of the drop/add period. 
 
6. How do I get a refund of my down payment if financial aid has been applied to my student account? 
Your Nelnet plan will automatically be adjusted, and your plan will terminate if your semester  balance is zero or below.  Any overpayments to student accounts as a result of Nelnet payments and estimated financial aid are processed once the Federal and/or State Financial Aid funds are received from the Federal and/or State Government.
