Claims Process Established to Help Former MCDI Students

photoBOSTON (WGGB) — A claims process has been established to assist former students of the Springfield based Massachusetts Career Development Institute.

MCDI, which provided vocational training in a number of professional fields, officially closed its doors in July.

According to a release from the Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure, former students must file their claims by 5:00p.m. on Monday, September 23.

Those who may be eligible to submit a claim include:
• Students who did not complete their coursework or program of study through MCDI
• Students who were denied a discharge of their private student loan(s)
• Students who paid for products or materials from MCDI (books, equipment, etc.) but did not receive them

Students wishing to file a claim are encouraged to consult the MCDI school closure bulletin available on DPL’s website, www.mass.gov/dpl/schools, to check whether they are eligible.

Once eligibility is determined, students should contact DPL by phone at 617-727-5811 to request a claim form.
