If a program is fully enrolled, students already accepted into that program may be required to pay a $150 tuition deposit to maintain their enrollment status. The deposit will be credited to a student’s account and deducted from the total amount owed when the first billing statement is issued. Students not paying the deposit by the specified date will forfeit their place in the program. The deposit will be refunded if the request is received at Mitchell Tech in writing 30 days prior to the start of the program.


Students are required to purchase designated book, supplies, tools and uniforms as assigned by the instructor in each course. Most programs specify tools and/or uniforms that are characteristic of the occupation for which the student is enrolled. Many of these materials can be purchased online (textbooks and laptops; tools; scrubs).

Students who enroll need to prepare for some initial expenses at the start of the term. Books, supplies, and tools will be required for all classes. Financial aid loans are not available to first time borrowers until the 30th day of the term. Please budget accordingly when making your school plans.


Students who leave the college and desire a financial refund of tuition should see the Student Handbook for details.
