  • Students who have registered for courses, made payment for fees and who subsequently cancel their registration before the first day of classes are eligible for a full fee reassessment.
  • Students whose course has been cancelled by the department will receive a 100% fee reassessment of class fees for that course.
  • Students who are dropped for nonpayment, withdraw from the University, or reduce their course load after classes have begun are subject to the appropriate fee reassessment.

Appeals

A student who drops or withdraws and believes a greater refund should be authorized than provided for in the established schedule may fill out a Refund Appeal Form in the Office of University Registrar. A decision will be made by the Assistant Registrar within 10 days of receipt of the appeal.

A final appeal can be made to the University Registrar-MU within twenty (20) days of the receipt of the decision.

In exceptional cases, such as the death of a student, a 100% fee reassessment may be authorized at any time during the semester.
