Statements may be picked up at the front reception desk through the 10th of each month. Payment is due on the 10th, in advance, for child care services for the entire month unless other arrangements have been made. Tuition statements will reflect the schedule declared each semester on the schedule change form. Fees are assessed monthly, based on the weekly schedule, regardless of days attended. No credit will be given for holidays or days missed.

Any additional fees (i.e., non-compliant meals, extra hours, late fines etc.) will be added to the following month’s statement. Questions about statements may be directed to the director.

Tuition rates for child care services are reviewed on a yearly basis every May. Notification of specific increases will be made in writing, attached to the monthly statement.

Payment can be made by check or money order and should be made out to "Marquette University Child Care Center" or "MUCCC." Please deposit all payments into the payment box in the lobby.

Checks returned from the bank marked NSF will be assessed a $25 fee.
Amounts paid in excess will be credited on the next month’s statement or will be refunded to families no longer attending the center.

Other fees

There is a registration fee of $55 per family is due upon enrollment at the center. A supply fee is assessed monthly based on the number of days of attendance per week with a minimum of $1 per month and a maximum of $5 per month per child.

Late pick-up fine

Because of licensing requirements, strict ratios must be followed, so staying late or arriving early often puts a classroom over the mandated ratio. We ask that you call the center so that arrangements can be made to stay in compliance. The center closes at 6 p.m., and “closing” staff are required to stay in the building until all rooms are empty. Please arrive at least 5 minutes early to gather your child(ren) and belongings so the building is clear at 6 p.m. and staff can lock up. If you are late picking up your child(ren), after the 6pm closing, a fee will be assessed at $2 per minute per child.

Schedule changes

Schedule change forms are located in the wall pocket outside the front office. Complete the form at least two weeks in advance. It is not guaranteed that the space will be available. Your child’s schedule can not exceed more than 10 hours per day.

Withdrawing from the center

A two-week notice is required for withdrawal from the center. The withdrawal section of the schedule change form with the last date of attendance noted should be returned to the office so the space may be offered to families on the waiting list.

Extra-hours request

Periodically, parents may need to request extra time during hours when his/her child is not normally scheduled. In this event, an extra-hours form is available outside the main office in the wall pocket. Please fill out the date and time extra care is needed, and submit the form to the office at least 24 hours in advance. Hours will be granted provided there is room within a classroom during the requested time slot. Parents will be notified in writing whether the request has been approved or denied. The charge for granted extra hours would appear on the next month’s tuition statement.
Please contact the center if granted extra hours will not be needed to assure that additional fees will not be charged.


Yearly receipts of child care expenses are issued in January for tax purposes and include the federal identification number. If a receipt is needed at any other time, please attach a note to your monthly payment.
