A+ Deadlines

Priority dates for A+ students are the same as for all students and are listed in the chart below:

Fall May 30
Spring Nov. 30
Summer May 1

If you do not meet the Priority Dates above, you will be responsible for paying tuition and fees by the MCC fee deadline (Fall is July 15; Spring is Dec. 15; Summer is May 15). You may receive a refund if you enroll and complete your financial aid and any MCC paperwork by the final A+ deadline below:

Fall Sept. 15
Spring Feb. 15
Summer June 15

Failure to meet these deadlines will result in loss of A+ benefit for the current term of enrollment.

Know the limits of A+ :

A+ will not pay for a class (classes) if:

  • You enroll after the final A+ deadline (Fall - Sept. 15; Spring - Feb. 15; Summer - June 15).
  • You are a returning student and your cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below a 2.5.
  • You are repeating a class - either to change a grade (F, D, C, B, A) or because the previous class was dropped after the 100% refund period.
  • You have completed 105% of the hours requried for the program in which you are currently enrolled.
  • You have earned a certificate or degree.
  • It has been more than 48 months since you graduated from high school.
  • You did not successfully complete one or more courses for which A+ has paid; therefore, your A+ benefits will be reduced by the cost of that course(s) not completed in the subsequent term(s).
