Payment Policy

Students are responsible for making satisfactory payment arrangements with the Business Office by the first day of each term or module. Payment arrangements may include a combination of financial aid and personal payment plan options. Cash, check, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa are accepted.

Students who become delinquent on payments may be withdrawn from all courses during the academic period. In addition, students who owe a debt to the University will not be allowed to register for additional courses, receive grades, transcripts, or diplomas. In addition, services such as check cashing, dining services, and campus residency may be denied until arrangements have been made with the Business Office to pay the debt. Debts that become past due will be assessed a $100 fee. Debts that become 30 days past due are in default and remitted to a collection agency. In the event of default in any amount due, and if the account is placed in the hands of an agency or attorney for collection or legal action, the student will be liable to pay an additional charge equal to the cost of collection including agency, attorney fees and court costs.

Credit Balances

Credit balances that result from financial aid funds are processed after the student’s attendance is confirmed, the financial aid funds are received, and all institutional charges are satisfied. The Business Office will issue electronic payments through BankMobile or a paper check if a parent loan refund. If the student receives a credit balance check and subsequently ceases class attendance, they will be subject to the Financial Aid Return of Funds Policy and may be required to return and/or repay any unearned portions of financial aid that they received toward their educational expenses.

Tuition, Room, and Board Refund and Withdrawal Policy

Students are considered financially responsible for all institutional charges upon enrollment. It is the responsibility of students to officially withdraw by contacting the Student Affairs Office.  Failure to attend class does not constitute official withdrawal and does not remove financial or academic responsibility nor qualify students for refunds. Students must follow the official withdrawal procedure to be eligible for a tuition refund. The appropriate withdrawal date will be determined after completing the withdrawal procedure.

Tuition, Room, and Board charges will be refunded on a weekly pro-rated basis according to the following schedule. Course fees, technology fees, and activity fees are not refundable.  Calendar days include weekdays and weekends for the purpose of calculating refunds.

Housing Deposits and Tuition Deposits Refunds

New students are required to pay a tuition deposit. For new students wishing to live on campus a Housing Deposit is also required. Tuition and Housing Deposits are refundable through May 1 upon written request to the Business Office. Tuition deposits are credited toward the student’s account after the 10th day of class. Housing Deposits are held until the student moves out of campus housing that academic year. If there are no damages or improper check out charges, the full deposit is refunded to the student.

Returning residential students are required to pay an annual housing deposit fee of $100. Housing Deposits are held until the student moves out of campus housing that academic year. If there are no damage or improper check out charges, the full deposit is refunded to the student.

Return of Financial Aid Upon Withdrawal

Financial aid recipients who withdraw or cease attendance in a semester may be subject to return of financial aid funds to the Department of Education per federal, state and institutional policies. The “Financial Aid Return of Funds Policy” in the Expenses and Financial Aid section of this catalog provides additional information on the return of funds policies.

The return of financial aid funds may result in a balance owed to Midway University, and the student is responsible for any balance that is created as a result of a return of funds. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with the Financial Aid Office and the Business Office prior to withdrawal.
