A charge of $50.00 will be assessed for any returned checks.

You may find it necessary to withdraw/drop from MMTTI before the end of the course. The date that you start the withdrawal process is the official withdrawal date for the course and will be used to calculate the percentage of time you were enrolled and the percentage of tuition you are charged.  The calculation will use the total number of calendar days you attended divided by the total number of calendar days of the enrollment period (minus authorized breaks of five days or more).

If you drop after the 41 percent point in the enrollment period, there is no tuition refund; you are responsible for the full amount.

The date of withdrawal is considered to be the date which the Institute office receives a written statement of withdrawal by the student. Students must send letter of withdrawal to BOTH [email protected] AND [email protected].   Students failing to notify the office will forfeit any refund.  Students dismissed from the course will also forfeit any refunds.

Refunds are based upon the official first day of class. If you are eligible to receive a refund for withdrawal from class, you will be issued a refund within thirty days of receiving the letter of withdrawal.

Stop Payment Charge

MMTTI is not responsible for refund checks lost in the mail. In the event you do not receive your refund check and wish for us to issue a new check, a stop payment fee (currently $25.00) will be deducted from the new check. Stop payment requests on refund checks will only be processed once the check has been missing for 10 business days from date of mailing.

Students who register at Mid-America Montessori Teacher Training Institute:

  • Assume responsibility of full payment for tuition and fees generated from that registration, regardless of any sponsor agreements.
  • Must keep a current mailing address for invoicing purposes on file with our accounting department.
  • Failure to receive an invoice because of an incorrect address does not relieve responsibility of timely payments.

Failure to make satisfactory financial arrangements can result in delay of certification, denial of future registration privileges, removal from classes, and/or referral to a collection agency.

Students whose accounts are referred to a collection agency will be liable for all reasonable collection costs including attorney fees and other charges necessary for collection of this debt. Accounts referred to collections are reported to the credit bureau(s).

By registering for classes, students acknowledge receipt of this information and their acceptance of the associated responsibilities.
