Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees must be paid in full by 12:00 pm (noon) two business days prior to the first class day. *Some departments may require payment earlier, students need to verify, at time of registration, when their payment will be due. Students will only be contacted if a course is cancelled or if any changes are made to the course information originally published in the CE schedule. Tuition and fees are based on the number of course hours, instruction costs, and equipment and building use.
Out-of-state fees may apply and will be noted in course information. An out-of-state resident is defined as: US citizens 18 years of age or older who have not been a resident of Texas 12 months prior to registration.
Please note: if you have a prior balance a hold, which prevents registration, will be placed on your account. You must contact the cashier's office at (432) 685-4531 and resolve the issue BEFORE being permitted to register for Continuing Education courses.
Cash, checks, money orders, traveler's checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover are accepted for course payment. Course payments may be made online or in person at the following locations. The student is responsible for mailing the payment to the main campus. Payment is not finalized (this involves mailing and processing time) until the Cashier Office in Midland posts payment to the student's account.

Courses that lack sufficient enrollment will be cancelled by 12:00 pm (noon) two business days prior to the first class day. If a course is cancelled, the continuing education department makes every effort to notify all registered students promptly. Students will only be contacted if a course is cancelled or if any changes are made to the course information originally published in the CE schedule.
Each Continuing Education class has a minimum student enrollment requirement that has to be met in order for the class to make. Paid students that are enrolled in a cancelled course will automatically be issued a refund from our accounting department. No cash refunds will be issued. Students will receive a 100% refund (less a $10 processing fee) if they drop by 12:00 pm (noon) two business days prior to the first class day; they will receive an 80% refund (less $10) if they drop before the second class day. With the exception of extenuating circumstances, students will not receive a refund for a one-day class if they drop on the day of the class. No refunds will be given after the second class day. It is the student's responsibility to cancel their registration. Allow 30 days for refund processing. No cash refunds will be issued.
Social Security Numbers
A social security number is required to identify students' permanent records. The Midland College registration system automatically encrypts a student's social security number into a student identification number. The student ID is used for all internal printed material and provides additional protection of a students' privacy. Students are urged to become familiar with the student ID number and to use it when communicating with College offices. Students are requested to provide their social security number to the College for maintenance of their student records; it also allows the College to meet federal and state-reporting requirements.
Continuing Education classes qualify eligible participants to receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The CEU is a nationally recognized standard of measurement earned for participation in qualified programs. One unit is awarded for every ten hours of instruction. Upon successful completion of qualified course the participant will receive a Midland College certificate with awarded hours and CEUs.
Grading, Certificates, and Transcripts
The final grade in most Continuing Education Department courses is an ‘S’ (satisfactory completion) or a ‘U’ (unsatisfactory completion). Personal enrichment courses may be excluded from the grading process.
Unless otherwise noted, books and supplies are not included in the tuition costs. Some courses require the purchase of special books or equipment. Supply lists are provided at the time of registration or on the first class day. Midland College bookstore hours are Monday - Thursday from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.
