Residence Requirements

It is the responsibility of each student attending Midland College to register under the proper residence classification and pay the correct tuition and fees. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rule 21.731 requires each student applying to enroll at an institution to respond to a set of core residency questions for the purpose of determining the student’s eligibility for classification as a resident. This questionnaire, along with other pertinent residency information, is available in the Enrollment Services Office and on the Midland College website.

In-District. An In-District student is a Texas resident who physically resides within the geographic boundaries of the Midland College District, excluding student housing or residence halls.

To qualify for In-District residency a student:

  • Must have been classified as a Texas resident
  • Have been a resident of the Midland College taxing district for a period of six months before first enrollment

A student may reclassify from Out-of-District to In-District status, with the appropriate documentation, after six months residency in the Midland College taxing district.

Out-of-District. A Texas resident who does not physically reside within the geographic boundaries of the Midland College taxing district will pay Out-of-District tuition. Aliens living in the United States under a visa must meet the same tuition residency requirements as do U.S. citizens. A permanent resident must meet the same length of residency requirements as a citizen. A student may reclassify from Out-of-District to In-District status, with appropriate documentation, after six months residency in the Midland College District. A listing of those documents which can be accepted for the purpose of residency classification is available in the Enrollment Services Office.

Students Residing Outside of the Midland College District. The Midland College Board has adopted Section 130.0032, Subchapter A, of the Texas Education Code that permits a person who resides outside of the Midland College District and who owns property subject to ad valorem taxation by the Midland College District, or a dependent of the person, to pay tuition at the rate applicable to a student who resides in the district. To qualify for this benefit, the property owner or dependent must provide the Enrollment Services Office with a copy of a Notice of Appraised Value Statement from the Midland Central Appraisal District in the property owner or dependent’s name that shows Midland College as one of the taxing units.

Discounts/Limitations

Concurrent Enrollment.  Students who enroll both in a community college and a senior college or university should register for the community college courses first. After that has been completed, they should take their receipt to the senior college or university and register. This may result in savings of tuition and fees.

Senior Citizen Discount.  Midland College offers senior citizens an exemption from the payment of general use fees when they enroll in credit classes. To be eligible for the exemption, students must be sixty-five years of age or older and pay tuition costs plus any lab fees. All other Midland College policies apply.

Excess Undergraduate Credit Hours (Texas Education Code 61.0595).  A Texas resident who has taken more semester credit hours than the minimum required for a bachelor’s degree may be required to pay non-resident tuition rates for the excess hours. Attempted hours include all hours earned at public community colleges and universities, but do not include developmental or technical education hours.

Students enrolled before the Fall 2006 have a limit of 45 semester credit hours above the minimum required for the bachelor’s degree. Students enrolled beginning in Fall 2006 have a limit of 30 semester credit hours above the minimum required for a bachelor’s degree. Additional information provided in the Texas Education Code 61.0595.

Installment Payment Plan (Fall, Spring and Summer Semesters)

Students may pay tuition and fees and/or room and board on an installment basis. These require two separate payment plans. A $25.00 processing fee is charged for each plan. The student can execute an installment agreement on the Midland College website within their Campus Connect account. There are different payment plan options depending on the time of registration. Tuition and fees or payment plan contracts are due at the time of registration. Failure to pay the complete balance may result in denial of course credit for that semester.

Schedule of Tuition and Fees

The schedule below reflects the combined tuition and general use fees required of all courses. Certain courses may require additional fees for labs, liability insurance, private instruction, and testing. This schedule reflects the tuition and fee rates in effect at the time of printing. All tuition and fees printed in this catalog are subject to change by the Midland College Board of Trustees.

Recent rates are published in the course schedule.

Refund Policy

Please be aware that refunds are made according to the date that classes officially begin rather than the date the student enrolls. All tuition and fee refunds must be initiated by the student. The date on the drop slip will determine the date of withdrawal and the amount of refund.

Refunds for installment agreements will first be applied to total balances. Refunds will be the applicable percentage of the total tuition and refundable fees due for the semester, less any amount not paid. If a student has paid less than the amount due after applying the applicable refund percentage, the student is required to pay the balance. Students who officially drop or withdraw from the institution will have their tuition and certain fees refunded according to the following schedules:

Pro Rata Refund Policy

In accordance with the Higher Education Amendments, Section 484B, students receiving any Title IV funds (Pell, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Direct Loan Program or Direct Parent [PLUS] Loans), who completely withdraw from school prior to the 60 percent point in the semester may owe a repayment of grant funds received. Part of the repayment may be owed directly to the Department of Education and the remainder to the school. Midland College is required by the Department of Education to evaluate each student who receives Title IV funds to determine if the student has earned all of the money received and calculate if the student owes. Students owing will be notified in writing. The student must then respond by repaying the funds owed or establishing a repayment agreement. Students not responding will no longer be able to receive any Title IV funds at any school until repayment is made.

Amounts repaid will apply to funds in the following order:

  1. Federal Direct Loan Program
  2. Federal Direct Parent (PLUS) Loans
  3. Pell Grant
  4. Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  5. Other Title IV aid

For additional information, contact the Financial Aid Office at (432) 685-5511.

Tuition and fees paid directly to the institution by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship shall be refunded to the source rather than directly to the student.
