Refund Policy

Refund due to cancellation: If MCTD cancels a course, due to lack of enrollment, all deposits received will be refunded within 8 weeks.

If an Adult Learner needs to withdraw due to extenuating circumstances, refund is up to the discretion of MCTD.

Refund due to dismissal: If an Adult Learner is dismissed from the program prior to the program starting date, 100% of paid tuition (less registration fee) will be refunded. After the start of the program, allowable refund percentages are computed from the date of official dismissal.
