Students, check your tuition balance, review your account activity, or enroll in the Spring 2020 payment plan (aka MAXPlan), by logging into your MAXPay account from your myMCAD student dashboard.

Please note that MAXPlans do not automatically renew from one semester to the next. If you successfully completed the Fall 2019 MAXPlan and would like to participate in the Spring 2020 plan, you must re-enroll per the instructions above.
