Total Cost of Attendance

The Budgets listed below known as your Cost of Attendance (COA) is the estimated total amount it will cost a student to go to college each year. The COA is a college's total estimated expenses for one year including direct charges such as tuition and fees, housing and food, and indirect charges such as books, supplies, transportation, loan fees, and miscellaneous expenses. A school's cost of attendance is used to determine each student's eligibility for financial aid, such as grants and loans. Very few students pay the full cost of attendance because most receive some type of financial aid. These do not reflect actual billed costs.

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Students who become delinquent on payments may be withdrawn from all courses during the academic period.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 Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc. 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 the students to officially withdraw by completing the Student Withdrawal Request Form. 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.

Midway University reserves the right to make changes to the content of courses, its course offerings, scheduling, and modality of instruction.  The tuition and fees set forth in your statement apply regardless of the mode of instruction, whether in-person or otherwise.  Tuition and fees will not be refunded in the event that the modality of instruction changes for any reason, including, but not limited to, the Covid-19 pandemic, natural disasters, governmental shut down, or other public health emergencies.  It is understood that tuition and fees are in exchange for learning, academic credit, and certain non-academic services regardless of the modality of instruction.

Military Service Withdrawal

Sometimes military students need to withdraw as they are deployed or reassigned. Midway University works with our military students on this process. In many cases students don’t even have to withdraw as they are taking courses on our online platform and can continue from anywhere. Our programs are also designed so students can stop for one 8-week module and start in the next module.

If called to active duty, a student (or student who is a spouse/dependent child of a member of the military called to active duty, and who needs to withdraw due to the call-up), should contact the Student Affairs Office. Appropriate documentation must be submitted to Student Affairs and a withdraw interview must be completed. The documentation includes military service orders with formal correspondence on unit letterhead signed by the commander requesting military withdraw due to the orders. If the student is called to active military service before the midpoint of a term, the student may request a withdraw from some or all courses and the University will fully refund their tuition and mandatory fees for the withdrawn courses . If the student is called to active duty military service during the term, the student may make arrangements with their instructors to remain enrolled in some or all of their courses and will be assigned an “I” grade (Incomplete) for each course in which they remain enrolled. In such a case, no adjustment of tuition charges for enrolled courses will occur. Student have until the end of the next academic term following their release from military service to complete the course. Failure to do so will result in the “I” grade becoming an “F” grade.

A student receiving Veteran’s Benefits should notify the VA Certifying Official in order to complete required documents. Military withdrawal students are eligible for “military re-enrollment” to the University, assuring the student access to the same major and location as was assigned at the time of withdrawal (or the most similar one, if same program does not exist). The re-enrollment fee for both undergraduate and graduate students will be waived.

Upon complete withdrawal from the University, students who receive federal financial aid of any kind will have their packages recalculated in accordance with the Higher Education Amendments Extension Act, Public Law 109-292. Details can be found in the Federal Student Handbook available in the Financial Aid Office.

Housing Deposits and Tuition Deposits Refunds

New students are required to pay a tuition deposit of $150.  Tuition deposits are refundable through May 1 upon written request to the Business Office and Admissions.  Tuition deposits are credited toward the student’s account after the 10th day of class.  If the student does not attend Midway University or withdraws on or before the 10th day of class, the tuition deposit is forfeited.

A $150 housing deposit is required each academic year for both new and returning students who would like to live on campus.  Housing deposits are held until the end of the academic year, at which time they will be applied to the account balance, forfeited, or refunded based on the following criteria.  If the student does not attend Midway University or withdraws before the 10th day of class, the housing deposit is forfeited.  If a student chooses to live off campus at any time before or during the academic year, the housing deposit will be forfeited as space has been reserved for that student.  If the student is encouraged or made to live off campus by Midway University, the housing deposit will be applied to the student’s account at the end of the academic year.  If a deposit is not forfeited, after the end of the spring semester, it will first be applied to the student’s account balance, and any excess funds will be 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.

For more information read the Financial Aid Return of Funds Policy.
