Student Tuition and Fees (cont'd)
Additional Information Regarding Fees
Withdrawing from All Classes and Refunds
The following refund schedule applies to the standard semester format. For courses taught in nonstandard format such as Intersession, and special workshops, there are no refunds after the first day the class meets. See the Summer Session catalog for information regarding the refund policy during summer.
MSU Billings students receiving Title IV funds and who officially or unofficially withdraw or are expelled, up to the 60% point of the semester, may be required to return federal funds. Students may also be entitled to a post withdrawal refund up to the 60% point of the semester. Examples of the Federal Title IV policy may be obtained at the MSU Billings Financial Aid Office.
Financial aid recipients will not receive refunds until their financial aid is repaid (Pell Grant, SEOG Grant, SSIG Grant, Perkins Loan, FFEL Loans, fee waivers, and some scholarships). If the refund is insufficient to repay the financial aid programs, students will be billed for the over-awards.
Students who owe over-award repayments to any federal aid programs cannot receive future financial aid until repayment is made in full.
Students adding classes after payment of fees are required to pay additional fees created by the change in credit load. Payment for these charges is due immediately.
Students dropping classes (but not withdrawing) will receive a 100 percent refund on classes dropped before the end of the 15th classroom day. Refunds will not be made after the 15th classroom day. Students will be assessed a $5.00 drop fee for each class dropped.
Financial Aid students must pay for fees prior to classes beginning. The student’s financial aid will be applied to the student’s account with any refund being mailed to the student prior to the first day of classes. Please call the Business Office at (406) 657-2301 for details, or visit us at www.msubillings.edu/boffice.
Payment may be made by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover) in person, by mail, by telephone or via the internet by accessing the student secure website and selecting the student online payment option.
Fees may be paid after courses are selected. To avoid a $40.00 late registration charge, fees must be paid by the date posted for each semester as indicated in the calendar. Fees may be paid by mail. To request that a fee statement be mailed to you, call (406) 657-2301.
Students may elect to pay their fees in installments. The installment payment method requires approximately 1/4 down, 1/4 within 30 days, 1/4 within 60 days, and 1/4 within 90 days. A $30.00 administrative charge is assessed to students using the installment method. Students not paying in accordance with the terms of the deferred fee contract will be charged a $15.00 late payment fee per installment, and may have their enrollment canceled.
If the student withdraws from the university and the installment contract is not paid in full, any refund due the student is applied first to the unpaid balance of the contract. Withdrawal from the University does not void the contract and the University refund policy will be followed.
No person who owes Montana State University any fees, fines or other charges will be permitted to (1) receive academic credit or grades; (2) register; (3) secure a transcript, diploma, or other record; or, (4) access any MSU Billings facilities or services, regardless of the relationship thereof to the amount owed, until the full amount due has been paid or satisfactorily adjusted with Business Services. Any attorney’s fees or other costs or charges necessary for the collection of the amount owed may be added to the balance due, including collection agency fees. MSU Billings shall have the right to apply any portion of any amount it may owe such individual for any reason, including wages, to payment of the balance owed MSU Billings.
