Change in MU refund policy brings students full reimbursment

Monday, August 25, 2014 | 5:17 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — MU students who drop classes before Sept. 2 will get 100 percent of the course fee refunded rather than the 90-percent refunds they used to get.

The Registrar's Office, which handles all class scheduling, worked with the cashier and financial aid offices to push for the policy change.

"It should eliminate the confusion we've had in the past," Registrar Brenda Selman said. "It gives students the opportunity to change their schedule early in the semester without financial penalty."

Selman said students in the past asked a lot of questions about refunds and why they were being charged for dropping classes.

The full refund only applies to regular-length courses.

After Sept. 2, students will get a 50 percent refund if they drop a class without a grade. After Sept. 30, the refunds fall to 25 percent.

Supervising editor is Scott Swafford.
