MSU Moorhead adheres to the following tuition and fees payment due date framework:
The University permits students to partially defer tuition and fee payments beyond the tuition and fee payment due date. A payment plan may be the student's primary method of payment, or it may supplement other forms of payment such as financial aid or tuition waiver. Students who initiate the contracted payment plan option are allowed to pay their tuition and fees after the due date in monthly installments provided the minimum first payment and the final payment amounts are received consistent with the payment requirements specified in the payment due date framework as defined above.
In accordance with the tuition and fees payment due date framework defined above, the University cancels student registration for all credit courses during fall and spring terms unless one of the following conditions has been met:
Exceptions to the registration cancellation can be granted based on individual student circumstances.
Start of the term: the first day classes are held.
The University has an obligation to implement and follow sound business practices related to registration cancellation for non-payment in order to conserve financial resources and protect financial assets. Establishment of a due date for a minimum payment of University tuition and fees ensures accountability extending to both financial and statistical reporting.
