Montana State University

General Information


The Board of Regents of Higher Education approves all student fee charges. Fees are subject to change at any time.

Student charges and refunds are posted under the student's name, not the parent's. Therefore, all fee statements and bill notifications are e-mailed to the student, not the parents. Refund checks are mailed to the student. (Exception: Refund checks generated as a result of a Parent PLUS loan are mailed to the parents unless the Financial Aid Office has written authorization to disburse the funds to the student.)

Students are personally responsible for meeting their financial obligations at the times stated in the term calendar. A student's registration is not complete until all fees are paid.

All students are urged to safeguard their personal funds by establishing checking accounts. It is most helpful for a student to be able to write checks for exact amounts for fees, board and room, and other necessary expenses. A local bank account is also good identification while on campus.

A check presented to MSU which is subsequently returned by the bank for insufficient funds or other reasons may cause the cancellation of a student's registration, reporting to federal agencies, and/or a request to terminate board and room. A returned check service charge of $25 is assessed for all returned checks.
