Frequently Asked Questions
How is tuition paid or reimbursed for my student?
Tuition and books for the first cohort of IT students is free. However, if a student drops or fails a course, tuition for that course is the responsibility of that student and reimbursement to UCM will be required. Dual credit courses should be taken through the MCC or UCM systems where possible. Those taken outside the MCC or UCM systems will be reimbursed through receipt and grade transcript. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the program documentation to UCM for reimbursement. Future cohorts of the IT and other programs will receive tuition at a significantly reduced rate that is yet to be determined.
transportation for the MIC, including internships, at the respective business
Transportation for the MIC is the responsibility of the student or sending school district. Student hardships in this area should be addressed to the Director of the Summit Technology Academy and the MIC Project Facilitator.
Is my student assured of a job through their internship with a MIC
A student intern is not guaranteed a job with the participating business partner but the on-the-job internship experience will certainly increase job placement opportunities.
