Sometimes your student may need a little help along the way. The Center for Student Success is the first place you should recommend to your student to stop for valuable information or assistance. Or if you would like answers to your questions, you are always welcome to call or stop in. Here are some of the areas under the Center for Student Success umbrella.
Qualified counseling staff for students seeking personal counseling, career counseling is available during school hours or by appointment.
Meals are served in the Campus Center for a charge. Students are encouraged to use the Café Cash cashless payment system. Parents are able to load funds into a student's account allowing him or her to make food purchases from the Chef's Café. Deposits in the amount of $500, $250 and $125 may be made. The student makes the purchase with a student ID card. Only the holder of the ID card may use it for Café purchases. Any balance at the end of the fall semester will be transferred to the spring semester. Any balance remaining at the end of the spring semester will be forfeited. Refunds may be issued to students who withdraw from school in the first ten days of the semester in which the Café Cash was purchased. Please stop at the Mitchell Tech Business Office to put money on your Café Cash account.
The Campus Store
Students may purchase required books through the online bookstore. Students may purchase tools, supplies, school theme items and gift certificates in the Campus Store located in the Campus Center. Students may request a voucher to charge the cost of books at the online bookstore against their financial aid IF the award exceeds the amount due to the school. In order to do this, the financial aid process needs to be completed and the Campus Store staff will approve and create the voucher. Cash, check, or credit card can be used for purchases. Students may also purchase their books from other online vendors.
Student ID Cards
ID cards are required for all students. Each student should have an ID photo taken before beginning classes at Mitchell Tech. Cards are required as identification for the Business Office and for campus printing services. Money may be deposited into the student's Café Cash account and the card may be used to purchase meals and snacks in the Chef's Café. The student ID card also gives Mitchell Tech student access to the DWU/Great Life Wellness Center and can be used to receive discounts at many Mitchell businesses. Replacement fee for lost cards is $30.
