Proration and Refund Process

Tuition Pro-Ration and Housing Refund Processing

All payments on account, including applicable financial aid, will be applied first to any outstanding college financial obligations. Any credit balance refund will be processed through BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX Inc. If payment was by credit card, then reimbursement will be refunded back to the credit card used for payment when feasible.

Please note that while we make every effort to ensure the information on this page is consistent with that contained in the Northeast Mississippi Community College Student Catalog, information in the Catalog will always take precedence and is subject to change with action of the Board of Trustees.
