Payment Policies -- Tuition and fees are due two weeks before the first class day of each semester. WMCC does not send paper bills. It is the student’s responsibility to view their tuition and fees online through their SIS account and make payment by the due date. Your charges can be found on View/Pay Account.
*You must have full payment in place by the due date or you may incur a $50.00 late fee. If you register after the due date, payment is due at the time of registration.
Refund Policy -- All refunds require that the student complete an official withdrawal form. For fall and spring semesters (15-16 weeks) students who officially withdraw from the college or an individual course by the end of the fourteenth (14th) calendar day of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, less non-refundable fees. Students in classes that meet in a format shorter than the traditional semester (15-16 weeks) will have seven (7) calendar days from the designated start of the part of term to withdraw for a full refund. If the seventh (7th) or fourteenth (14th) calendar day falls on a weekend or holiday, the drop refund date will be the first business day following the weekend or holiday. Exception: students in courses that meet for two weeks or fewer must drop by the end of the first day of the class in order to get a 100% refund. Non-refundable fees are the advance tuition deposit. All other fees are to be considered refundable. This includes, but is not limited to, comprehensive student services fee.
*Federal law requires that White Mountains Community College collect names and corresponding social security numbers for all students attending the college. The college is required by the internal Revenue Code to produce a 1098-T tax form (26 U.S.C.A. Section 6050S or Federal Register, Vol. 67, No. 2244, page 777686 (ii)) which requires the college to report the names and social security numbers of all students taking credit-bearing courses. Please note, however, that the college will ensure the security of the student’s social security number and will not disclose it to anyone outside the college, except as authorized by federal or state laws, regulations or applicable policies.
