Payment of Fees

Tuition fees for a regular semester, a Summer Term, an Intersession, and any special class are due and payable to the Office of the Bursar in accordance with dates established and listed on the Marshall University website at www.marshall.edu/bursar. If you do not pay your enrollment fees on or before the due date, your registration will be cancelled and you will be subject to withdrawal from the university (see Withdrawal/Reinstatement Policy below). Do not depend on receiving a bill from the university in the mail. It is always your responsibility to know when enrollment fees are due and to pay them by that time. If you have not paid your enrollment fees by the official due date you must obtain permission from the appropriate academic dean and the Office of the Registrar to register.

Student deferred payment plans for tuition will be offered for the fall and spring semester. All available financial aid from the term must be credited to the student’s account prior to determining the amount available for deferral. Contact the Office of the Bursar for current deferred payment plan information. A student’s residence services fees (room and board) are due at a semester rate payable in accordance with dates established by the Department of Housing and Residence Life.

You can pay fees by VISA, American Express, MasterCard or Discover by using CashTrack on myMU (www.marshall.edu/myMU). Credit card payments are also accepted at the Office of the Bursar, 101 Old Main.

If you are a recipient of financial aid through the university’s loan or scholarship program, the university’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, or any governmental agency, or by private loan or scholarship, you must complete arrangements for payment through the Director of Student Financial Assistance in 116 Old Main and the University Bursar in 101 Old Main. (See Student Financial Assistance that follows.)

Your registration is not complete until all fees are paid.

Your registration will be cancelled if the bank does not honor your check for payment of registration fees. A charge of $25.00 will be made for each check returned unpaid by the bank.

A student who has a financial obligation to the university cannot engage in any registration activity until the obligation is satisfied. Should the obligation remain unpaid the obligation may be assigned to a state-authorized collection agency.

A student who withdraws from the institution by following proper withdrawal procedures will receive refunds of fees paid in accordance with the refunding policy.

A student who is required to withdraw from the institution for disciplinary reasons may not receive refunds of fees paid.

Withdrawal/Reinstatement Policy for Nonpayment of Enrollment and Residence Hall Fees

  1. Through late registration each semester, a schedule of withdrawal for nonpayment will be included on the bursar’s office website at www.marshall.edu/bursar. Following late registration, the Bursar will send written notification to the student advising of administrative withdrawal for nonpayment of Enrollment or Residence Hall Fees.
  2. Upon notice from the Bursar, the Registrar will initiate a complete withdrawal for a student not paying fees. The withdrawal will be for “Administrative-Nonpayment of Enrollment or Residence Hall Fees.”

  3. The Registrar will notify the instructor that the student should not be permitted to continue attendance in the class.

  4. If the student fulfills the financial obligation, the Bursar’s Office will notify the student and his/her academic dean. The academic dean will have discretion to approve registration. If the dean approves, the student, the instructors, and the Registrar will be notified in writing immediately.

  5. Upon receipt of notice from the academic dean, the Registrar will initiate the procedure to register the student in the courses for which the student was enrolled at the time of withdrawal.

  6. A student who does not meet the financial obligation for enrollment and residence hall fees will have all entries of that registration erased on the Registrar’s permanent record.

  7. A student who owes a financial obligation to the university will not be permitted to enroll in subsequent semesters or terms until the obligation is paid.

  8. If a student disputes an administrative withdrawal, he/she may file an appeal with the Student Grievance Board through the Office of Student Affairs. (The Student Grievance Board is a subcommittee of the Student Conduct and Welfare Committee.) This appeal must be filed before the effective date of withdrawal established by the Bursar. The administrative withdrawal will be suspended until the President of the University acts upon the recommendation of the Student Grievance Board.

Withdrawal/Reinstatement for Other Financial Obligations

  1. Failure to fulfill other types of financial obligations with proper procedure may result in administrative withdrawal from the university.
  2. Upon notice from the Bursar, the Registrar will initiate a complete withdrawal for a student not paying financial obligations. The withdrawal will be “Administrative-Nonpayment of Financial Obligations’’ and will be dated with the effective date of processing of the withdrawal.
    Under these conditions, procedures will be followed as outlined above, items 3, 4, & 5, under “Withdrawal/Reinstatement Policy for Nonpayment of Enrollment and Residence Hall Fees.”
  3. Students who do not meet these “Other Financial Obligations’’ and who are administratively withdrawn from the university will receive the grade determined by the withdrawal policy in effect at the time the administrative withdrawal was initiated.
  4. A student who owes other types of financial obligations to the university will not be permitted to enroll in subsequent semesters until the obligation is paid.
  5. If a student disputes an administrative withdrawal, he/she may file an appeal with the Student Grievance Board through the Dean for Student Affairs. (The Student Grievance Board is a subcommittee of the Student Conduct and Welfare Committee). This appeal must be filed before the effective date of withdrawal established by the Bursar. The administrative withdrawal will be suspended until the President of the University acts upon the recommendation of the Student Grievance Board.

Public Law 115-407, Sect 103

Effective August 1, 2019:

For students utilizing Chapter 31 VA Veteran Readiness and Employment or utilizing Chapter 33 Post 9-11 VA education benefits, while payment to the institution is pending from the VA, Marshall University guarantees:

  • Enrollment in the semester for which VA payment is pending;
  • Access to registration for the subsequent semester;
  • No late fees assessed for amount pending payment by VA;
  • Access to any resources (access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities) available to other students who have satisfied their tuition and fee bills to the institution;
  • Borrowing additional funds will not be required.

To qualify, by or on the first day of the semester a student must:

  •  Present to the Office of the Registrar a VA Certificate of Eligibility issued in the name of the student;
  • Provide written request to be certified by completing the form at: www.marshall.edu/registrar/veterans/;
  • Use one of the two VA benefits, Chapter 31 or Chapter 33, as noted.

Costs which are the responsibility of the student, such as tuition and fees not billable to VA, or costs for dormitory and meal plans, are not covered under the provision established by PL 115-407, Sec. 103. Students using Post 9-11 benefits at less than 100% eligibility are responsible to contact the Office of the Bursar to make payment arrangements on the amount of tuition not anticipated to be paid by the VA. Students are responsible to make payment arrangements for dorm and meal plans, if applicable.

The provision established by PL 115-407, Sec. 103, ends 90 days after tuition and fees are billed to VA whether or not VA has issued payment to the University. At that time, the University can hold the student liable for the billable tuition and fees unpaid by VA, place a registration hold for any outstanding amount billed to VA, or withdraw the student for non-payment of the billable tuition and fees not paid by VA. Ultimately, the student does agree to assume and pay any and all costs associated with said enrollment not paid by the VA directly to the University.

Refund Procedures

Enrollment fees (tuition fees) will be refunded during the period designated by the Office of the Registrar for Registration, Late Registration, and Schedule Adjustments for a regular semester or a summer term and published on the bursar’s office website at www.marshall.edu/bursar. Enrollment fees (tuition fees) will be refunded to students for:

  1. Schedule Adjustments - Students who drop one or more classes through the end of the Late Registration period shall be eligible for a full reduction of tuition and fees of the dropped course(s), provided that the remaining tuition and fee assessment falls below twelve credit hours for undergraduate students or nine credit hours for graduate students.
  2. Complete Withdrawals - Students initiating a complete withdrawal from the University shall receive a reduction in tuition and fees calculated using the following schedule, in accordance with Title 133 Legislative Rule, Series 32, Section 6.1:

    During the first 10% of the term, 90% reduction,
    From 11% to 25% of the term, 75%,
    From 26% to 50% of the term, 50%,
    After 50% of the term is completed, no reduction in tuition and fees will occur.

    Should the percentage calculation identify a partial day, the entire day should be included in the higher refund period.
  3. Course Withdrawals after Late Registration - Students who do not officially withdraw from all classes at the University shall not be eligible for a reduction in tuition and fees.
  4. Students receiving financial assistance covered by Title IV, who officially withdraw shall receive a refund in accordance with the Higher Education Act. See the following section.

Return of Title IV Funds Policy

See section under “Student Financial Assistance.”

Cancellation of Class

When it becomes necessary to cancel a class by administrative and/or faculty action, a student is granted a full refund of the fee for the class cancelled unless he/she registers in another course of like value in terms of semester hours. This action does not apply to withdrawals due to disciplinary action or withdrawals due to nonpayment of financial obligations.

Housing and Residence Life

Cancellation and Refund Policy for Residence Services

Cancellations of the Housing Contract by those not planning to enroll in the University or reside on campus must be received in writing by the Department of Housing and Residence Life on or before May 15th. Such cancellations will result in a refund of $100.00 of the reservation deposit. Cancellation postmarked after the 15th from individuals who do not enroll in the University or reside on campus will result in a forfeiture of the entire $200.00 reservation deposit. Individuals who complete a contract and who enroll in the University (academic classes) will be expected to fulfill their obligations for the period specified. For contracts commencing for the Spring or Summer terms, cancellations postmarked 30 days before the opening of housing will result in a $100.00 refund. Cancellations postmarked after that date will result in a forfeiture of the entire $200.00 reservation deposit.

Voluntary withdrawal from the University and, in turn, housing and food service prior to the opening of the residence halls will result in a full refund less the $200.00 reservation deposit. Complete withdrawal from the University and housing and food service between opening day and the first Friday will result in a refund of fifteen weeks room and board. Withdrawals after the first Friday will result in a forfeiture of all monies paid for a room and board plan. 

Students whose residency is terminated automatically (due to violations of Code of Conduct or Residence Hall policies) forfeit all monies paid for that semester and remain liable for any unpaid room and meal plan balances at the time of termination. Students will be responsible for any interest, collection and reasonable attorney’s fees associated with the collection of delinquent accounts.

Students who are denied admission, declared academically ineligible to return, or are unable to return for medical reasons, will be refunded on a prorated basis.

Refunds of the enrollment fee only to students called to armed services will be processed in accordance with policy established by the Office of the Registrar.

Late fees are nonrefundable.
