The information below outlines how Morehead State University will be handling with student refunds. This message is from an email sent by the Office of the President.
Residence Hall Refunds:
Those students that lived in MSU residence halls during the spring semester as of March 23 will receive a prorated refund.
The refundable amount will be determined by the student’s room type and residence hall, and the credit will be placed on the student’s account. This prorated amount will first be used to address any outstanding balance(s) on the student’s account before a refund is issued.
Any student who purchased a private room at an increased rate during the spring semester will receive a prorated credit for any unused days. Those students who received institutional funding/scholarships for their housing will only receive a prorated refund based on the actual amount paid by the student, and not the institutional scholarship. Those students who have been approved for extended stay in the residence halls past March 28 will not receive a prorated refund.
Parking Permit Refunds:
Parking permit refunds for students will be determined by the type of permit purchased and will be refunded in prorated form. MSU parking permits are valid for one full calendar year - August 15, 2019 - August 15, 2020. Students who purchased a parking permit for either the full year or a partial year beginning in January, and were enrolled in the spring semester on March 23, will receive a refund for the window of March 28 - May 8. This amount is based on the total number of days that students were not able to park in university approved parking locations during the spring semester.
If a student has any outstanding parking fines, the refundable amount will used to be towards clearing any outstanding balances. A refund will not be applicable to students who may have received a “free” parking permit as part of a university sponsored give-away program.
The Eagle Card Office is auditing each student’s meal plan account. All unused meals, per individual plans for the time period of March 28 - May 8 will be refunded. The meal plan refund will be applied to student accounts. All Flex Dollars associated with student meal plans will roll over to be used in the fall 2020 semester. Any senior who is graduating in spring 2020 will need to contact the Eagle Card Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) concerning unused meal plan refunds.
During the window of time of April 23 - 27 those students who the above refund(s) apply to will begin to see adjustments being made to their student accounts, and you may view those online. As we approach the week of May 1 - 8, each student affected will begin to receive a refund check in the mail or direct deposit into your banking account for the appropriate amount after your account is cleared.
If you do not receive your refund in the mail or by direct deposit by May 11, please contact: email@example.com
Thank you for your patience as we work through this, as we have thousands of accounts to process, reconcile, and issue refunds. Our goal has been to be as student-friendly as we can during our work through this, and we appreciate you for allowing us some time to do so.
