Paying For College

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance includes tuition and fees.

We are not a lending institution. However, we work with the student for payment arrangements to assist them in achieving their educational goals. As a convenience, Meridian West Central College also accepts all major credit cards and checks as payment for tuition and educational related expenses.

Payment Plans

Meridian West Central College arranges payment plans when full tuition cannot be paid. A plan is made with the Chief Financial Officer. While MWCC is not a lending institution, it works with the student to meet their educational goals

Other Types of Financial Aid


Scholarship awards are usually based on academic excellence and not necessarily on financial need.


Grants may be awarded from the federal government, the state government and/or private organizations. However, the College scholarships are merit based and awards are typically based on financial need.


Students can access alternative loans for tuition payment that are offered at low interest rates, which must be repaid after the student leaves college, or drops below half-time enrollment.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Students have the right to cancel the enrollment agreement including any other goods related to the instruction offered in the enrollment agreement. Should an applicant/student cancel or be terminated for any reason, all refunds will be made according to the following policy and schedule.

  1. Cancellation can be made in person, by electronic mail, by Certified Mail or by termination.
  2. All monies will be refunded if the college does not accept the applicant or if the student cancels within three (3) business days after signing the enrollment agreement and making initial payment.
  3. Cancellation after the third (3) business day, but before the first class will result in a refund of all monies paid with the exception of the registration fee (not to exceed $150.00).
  4. Cancellation during the add-drop period (the 1st week of classes) will result in a 100% refund. Cancellation after the add/drop period will result in no refund.
  5. Termination Date: In calculating the refund due to the student, the last date of actual attendance by the student is used in the calculation unless earlier written notice is received.
  6. Refunds will be made within 30 days of termination of students’ enrollment or receipt of Cancellation Notice from the student.
  7. Refund checks will be mailed to the student’s address on record unless a different address has been provided.

Financial Information

The College is not yet eligible to accept FAFSA and therefore cannot currently offer nor accept student loans. MWCC has in place a payment plan to help students. You may also want to look at the private alternative student loans for nursing students.

Students who are in a situation where they must take out a loan for college expenses should consult with the college financial advisor first before taking any actions.
