  • Question:

    If I have been out of school for a couple of years will my credits still apply? And if I still owe student loans can I apply for more? Role: Community


    Thank you for your interest in College of the Mainland.  Your college credits may apply depending on the program you enroll in.  To determine if your credits apply, please contact the Admissions and Records Office at 409-933-8264 when you decide your program.

    With regard your loan, the answer is "Yes" as long as the loans are either paid off or in good repayment standing (in deferment or not past due - defaulted on) and as long as you have not exceeded the aggregate loan limits established by the Department of Education.  For more information regarding loans, please contact the Student Financial Services Office at 409-933-8274.

  • Question:

    I was in class today in TVB-1412 11/12/2014 and I heard coming the continuing ed office talking loudly. I got out of class to go to the restroom and looked in the window there and some woman was talking very loudly at this middle aged man. I was really concerned and was very disrupted by how loudly she was talking to this poor guy. Just wanting to know if the rest of my semester is going to be disrupted by a faculty talking very loudly from her office? Should I make sure I never go into continuing ed? Just making sure this is not how you talk to your new/old enrolling students. Role: Student


    The Continuing Education office assists many individuals throughout the day.  All staff take care to provide quality customer service and to treat all individuals with dignity and respect.  The CE office staff is not aware of any incident as described that has occurred today or any day recently.  However, if such an incident occurs again, and you are disrupted in your classroom by loud voices in the CE office, please feel free to come into the office and report the situation to Sally Austin or Tina Starkey.  Thank you for voicing your concern.
