Satisfactory Academic Progress
Federal regulations require that financial aid recipients maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to remain eligible for Title IV Federal Financial Aid (Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant, Federal College Work Study, Federal Stafford Student Loans and Federal Parent Loans).
Satisfactory Academic Progress at MATC requires:
At the end of each semester, or when otherwise requested, grades are submitted to MATC Student Services and Satisfactory Academic Progress is determined. All students not meeting SAP are notified in writing that they are not eligible for Title IV Federal Aid for the next semester. Continued unsatisfactory work may be grounds for dismissal from the program.
Title IV Federal Aid can be reinstated when SAP requirements (listed above) are met, or by appeal. In order to appeal, a student must complete the Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal Form.
A student who has lost Title IV Federal Aid eligibility may still enroll and pay tuition and fee charges from their own resources.
Payment of Tuition, Fees and Other Costs
Tuition and fees are due at the beginning of each semester and are determined by the number of credit hours in which the student is enrolled. A student who has not met this obligation within 10 days after the due date may be dismissed from MATC. This does not apply to students who have financial aid eligibility and plan to use those funds for tuition and fee payment. For those students, payment will be expected from the first financial aid check. All costs for student projects must be paid in full before a project can be removed from MATC’s grounds.
Tuition and Fees Refund Policy
Students enrolled in undergraduate courses may be eligible for a refund of tuition/fees upon official withdrawal from a course or complete withdrawal from MATC. Refunds are calculated based on the day a MATC Drop/Add form is received by the MATC office, not when the student stopped attending class. Failure to attend a class does not constitute official withdrawal. Upon an official withdrawal, tuition/fee refunds will be calculated based on the following guidelines:
*It is recommended that a student who received financial aid to visit with the financial aid office before dropping a class to discuss any ramifications.
Any Manhattan Area Technical College student who is serving in the National Guard or reserves and is called to active duty during an academic term is entitled to a full refund of tuition and fees for any courses in which the student has not received a grade. Any Manhattan Area Technical College student drafted and required to report for active duty during an academic term is entitled to a full refund of tuition and fees for any courses in which the student has not received a grade. No refund of fees and tuition is due for any classes for which the student is awarded full credit. All refunds are contingent upon verification of status through official military documentation. Any student who volunteers for military service during an academic term will be subject to MATC’s non-military refund policy.
Title IV Funds Refund Policy
Undergraduate students receiving Federal Financial Aid who completely withdraw from Manhattan Area Technical College are also subject to the Department of Education’s Return of Title IV Funds policy. According to the policy a calculation is performed to determine if unearned Federal Student Aid needs to be returned to the Department of Education. The student is responsible for any funds that were required to be returned. A copy of the Return of Title IV Funds policy is available from the MATC Financial Aid Office.
EFC is the Expected Family Contribution level determined by the US Department of Education. In short, EFC reflects the family's ability to pay for college during the award year. It is based on the information provided by the student on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or confirmed through the verification process. EFC is the sum of the parental contribution (dependent student only) and student contribution. EFC does not reflect what the student or parents may have in "cash on hand" but the amount the family is expected to pay throughout the award year.
Veterans Education Benefits
The Kansas Commission on Veteran's Affairs has approved VA educational benefits for all MATC programs.

The form specifies both the information to be released, as well as to whom and by whom it is to be released. The student may revoke the permission by giving written notice at any time.
The printed catalog is available throughout the campus. If you would like to be mailed a copy of the catalog, you may request one from the Admissions Office by calling 785-320-4522.

Academic honesty at the Manhattan Area Technical College (MATC) is an important part of student success. MATC views academic honesty as an integral part of student development and learning. All MATC students are expected to understand the college’s policy on academic honesty, as well as, how the college defines academic dishonesty.
Academic dishonesty is any action taken by a student which violates the college’s policy on academic honesty. MATC defines academic dishonesty as the following:
Consequences for students in violation of the MATC Academic Honesty Policy will be at the discretion of faculty and/or administration. Consequences include but are not limited to:
Any student accused of academic dishonesty may request written confirmation of the violation and consequence(s). If a claim of academic dishonesty is in dispute then all parties involved will have the opportunity to appear before a 3 person independent college review panel. The review panel make-up will include the Vice President of Student Services, the Vice President of Instructional Services, and the Chair of the Faculty Senate. The review panel will have final ruling in such cases.
COMPASS® is an adaptive web-based placement assessment test used for placement into MATC general education courses. It specifically assesses student placement into general education math and writing courses.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
MATC is happy to COMPASS® test you for another institution. There is a $25 fee for COMPASS® assessments, payable prior to testing.
MATC is also a COMPASS® remote testing site.
To schedule a COMPASS® assessment contact the MATC Office of Admissions at (785) 587-2800.

The mission of the Learning Resource Center is to promote student success through critical thinking, competent communication, and the integration of technology.
Student peer tutors allow colleges to meet the needs of students within many academic disciplines. Being a student peer tutor can help students build valuable communication skills, reinforce their own knowledge, and provide self-confidence needed in demanding labor markets.
Currently the LRC employs one student peer tutor. This position is funded by the Federal Work-Study Program. For a student to be considered for this position they must qualify for the Federal Work-Study Program.
For more information about peer tutoring or information about how to become a student peer tutor please contact Darren S. Ortega, LRC Coordinator, at email@example.com.
What is a Study Group?
A study group is a small group of students, usually between 4 - 7 people, enrolled in the same class. This type of group meets periodically throughout the semester to review and discuss class material and coursework. Study groups allow students to engage in a process called active learning. Students engage with each other and pool their knowledge. Group members also offer encouragement and support to one another.
Start by identifying a specific need. Next, try to identify other serious, dedicated students in class. This can include students who come to all class meetings, take notes, submit homework on time, and ask questions. Keep in mind, a study group is not a social club.
For a study group to run smoothly it is best to appoint a group leader. This student helps fellow group members organize their thoughts, suggest study methods, and insures all students have an opportunity to ask questions or explain ideas. The group leader acts as a guide, but does not control the discussions. During group sessions each student is the “expert” and explains information to the other students. Group members can create mock exams, construct and solve problems, exchange notes, work on assignments, and prepare for exams together.
Forming a Study Group
If you need help getting a study group started contact the Learning Resource Center (LRC). Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the LRC which is in room 105 of the MATC main building. Once your group has discussed when they want to meet you should contact the LRC faculty and staff to assist with room scheduling and to provide additional learning tools you might need.
You may want to ask your instructor for suggestions about group activities and topics. Ask your instructor to make an announcement in class letting other students know that you are forming a study group. Identify a time that you all can meet to discuss group goals, meeting times and expectations for the study group.

If an exam or quiz needs to be made up, or a student needs to take a retest, instructors have the option of using the Learning Resource Center (LRC). Students may also wish to take exams and quizzes in the LRC outside of class. The LRC can accommodate these situations. Testing can be done in the Learning Resource Center only with an instructor’s approval.
Outside institutions often contact MATC regarding test proctoring opportunities for students in distance or online learning courses. If the LRC Coordinator is contacted by a student requesting to have a test proctored for an outside institution, the LRC Coordinator will provide the student his/her professional contact information. It is the responsibility of the student to pass this information to his/her instructor. At this point it is common that the instructor or institution contact the LRC Coordinator to establish legitimacy of MATC as a testing site. Listed below are further procedures that should be followed.
