Payment of Tuition, Fees and Expenses

Online services are available to pay tuition and fees through the College’s intranet service, LEO (leo.mayland.edu).

Payment is expected on designated dates and registrations will not be held after this date. Please refer to the College calendar for these dates.
Third Party Authorization
If a student is sponsored by a third party, it is his or her responsibility to ensure that written authorization is received by the college at least five working days before registration day. If authorization letters are not received five working days before registration day, the student is responsible for 100% payment. Failure to do so will result in the student being removed from his or her classes.

Residency Status for Tuition Purposes
To qualify as a North Carolina resident for tuition purposes, a person must have established legal residence (domicile) in North Carolina and must have maintained that legal residence for at least twelve months prior to his or her classification as a resident for tuition purposes. Every applicant for admission will be required to make a statement as to his or her length of residency in the state and may be asked for additional information to support a residency claim. Each student will be classified by the admissions staff as either a resident or non-resident of North Carolina. A student may appeal his or her residency classification to the Dean of Students within thirty days of the decision.
Undocumented immigrants may enroll in MCC and will be treated as non-resident students with respect to tuition and fees. They will be admitted by the Registrar according to ID SBCCC 400.2.
Undocumented immigrants will be admitted to the College if he or she attended and graduated from a United States public high school, private high school, or home school that operates in compliance with state or local law, or if he or she has earned a state-approved high school equivalent education in the United States and has Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) classification. Undocumented immigrants should speak with an admissions counselor when entering programs that require a professional license in order to work, such as the nursing program, because federal law prohibits states from granting professional licenses to undocumented immigrants. Undocumented immigrants will be charged out-of-state tuition.
