How to Calculate Refunds

Refund calculations are based on the date of the drop/withdrawal in the system and by published refund percentages. 

  • Student refunds for tuition and course fees are calculated based on the student’s liable hours after the drop/withdrawal.
  • Liable hours are the total hours a student is still registered plus the liable portion of the dropped/withdrawn course(s).               
Liable Hour Calculation Examples

  • Beginning with the 75% refunding period, dropping and adding of credit hours on the same (calendar) day (from 12am-11:59pm), is defined as “swapping”:
    • If the number of credit hours added equals the number of credit hours dropped, there is no additional liability; meaning there is no change in tuition assessment.
    • If the number of credit hours added is less than the number of dropped credit hours, the student may receive a partial refund, based on the published refund table.
    • If the number of credit hours added is more than the dropped hours, the student is liable for the additional liable credit hours.
  • Beginning with the 75% refunding period, if dropping and adding are done on different dates, swapping of credit hours does not occur.
  • Refunds are not given for a dropped course after the end of the refund period.
  • For withdrawals, the Late Registration Fee and Change of Schedule Fee are not refundable after the 100% refund period.
  • Course fees are assessed based on enrollment in specific courses and refunds are calculated on liable hours; lab fees are not eligible for swapping and will be refunded based on the published refund table.

 

              

Payment Procedures/Methods

An email notification will be sent to your ISU email address and to the email address provided by authorized users in the ISU Account Suite after initial billing is completed for each term. The email will alert you when a new bill is available for viewing at http://www.indstate.edu/payisu. If you register after the initial billing date listed below you can access a current account summary through your MyISU Portal under the Student Self Service > Financial Resources tab.

The Sycamore Plan provides three payment plan options from which you may choose—the Single Payment Plan, the Monthly Payment Plan, or the Variable Payment Plan.   Should your bill not reach you, you will still be responsible for paying by the deadline dates associated with the plan of your choice.

The Single Payment Plan requires full payment of academic and housing fees* by the dates listed below for each term in which you are enrolled. If academic and mandatory fees* remain unpaid as of this date, the Variable Payment Plan Fee will be assessed according to the schedule below.

The Monthly Payment Plan** requires enrollment in the Nelnet Program which allows you to spread your fall and spring academic, housing, and laboratory fees* over equal month payments, with payments due the first of each month. A $40 non-refundable, per semester, enrollment fee is required. Budget payments are made directly to the Nelnet payment processor. If your Nelnet budget and other resources do not cover your academic and mandatory fees* as of this date, the Variable Payment Plan Fee will be assessed according to the schedule below.

The Variable Payment Plan allows you the flexibility of determining the amount and timing of your payments, requiring only that your account be paid in full no later than the dates listed below for each term in which you are enrolled. If academic and mandatory fees* remain unpaid as of this date, the Variable Payment Plan Fee will be assessed according to the schedule below.

Financial Aid Procedures

Financial aid will pay for direct ISU charges which include tuition, fees, housing and food.  Aid that exceeds your direct charges will create a credit balance on your school account.  Such balances are paid to you as a check mailed to your address of record or by direct deposit to a designated bank account on file with the Office of the Controller.  For Financial Aid policies and detailed information about Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements, renewal policies, what to do in a financial emergency, special deadlines, etc you may refer to:  https://www.indstate.edu/financial-aid/policies.

Remember, many types of aid require full-time enrollment in order for you to receive your aid.  Your enrollment on the seventh and twenty-eighth day of classes is particularly important.  Changes in your enrollment, including adjustments in the number of credit hours for which you are enrolled, non-attendance in class, and your academic performance may all affect your financial aid eligibility.  These adjustments may also cause you to have financial obligations to the University and impact your future aid eligibility.  Please refer to https://www.indstate.edu/financial-aid/enrollment-effects for further details.

Summer Aid:

Financial Aid requirements for summer are different than a standard term.  For more specific information about using Financial Aid during the summer term, refer to https://www.indstate.edu/financial-aid/summer-aid.

Return of Title IV Aid Policy

The Federal government requires a prorated repayment of aid disbursed for most students who withdraw from all their classes before the term is completed.  This is required when you complete an official withdrawal by contacting the Office of the Registrar, as well as for unofficial withdrawals for ceasing attendance in classes.  The federal Title IV aid programs included in this calculation are the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant, Federal Direct Subsidized Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans, and Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loans. In addition, many state programs require ongoing monitoring as well, including the Frank O’Bannon Grant, 21st Century Scholars, and the Child of Disabled Veteran fee scholarship.

If the student withdraws from all classes, the University will typically be required to return a portion of the financial aid money used to pay institutional charges (such as tuition, fees, or university housing) on the account. Sometimes this will leave some university charges unpaid, and the student will be billed for this amount. Also, if the student received aid funds directly (as a refund, for example) to be used for other educational expenses, the student may have to return some portion of that money. The amount due will appear on the student’s bill in about 7-45 days after the withdrawal date.   ISU’s Office of Student Financial Aid “Return of Title IV Policy” is explained in more detail on the office’s website at https://www.indstate.edu/financial-aid/return-of-title-iv-policy.

GI Bill Delayed Payment Policy

Indiana State University will  not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet their financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from the VA under Chapter 31 or 33. This protection is valid for the first 90 days of the term as long as the student takes the following actions no later than the first day of the term. After the 90 days, the University will treat each Veteran on a case-by-case basis.

Submit a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to the Office of the Registrar

Submit the ISU Veteran Benefits Request Form for each term requesting to use benefits

Any portion of the student bill not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date and will be subject to the assessment of late fees.

Indiana State University complies with the requirements of 38 USC 3679(e).
