  • Payment Options

    • Make eCheck or Credit Card payments online with Visa, MasterCard or Discover at www.mnstate.edu. Select Current Student and click on eservices, login and select Bills and Payment, or call Business Services by February 16, 2015 at 218-477-2242 with your credit card information.

    • Check or money order payable to Minnesota State University Moorhead (MSUM). Write the student ID number on the memo portion of your check to assure credit to your account. Mail to: Minnesota State University Moorhead, Business Services, 1104 7th Avenue South, Moorhead, MN 56563. Your canceled check will be your receipt.

    • Payment Hours at Business Services: 8:30 - 4:00 -- Monday through Friday. If your aid does not cover your total bill, complete payment of the balance due no later than February 16, 2015 at Business Services to avoid a $50.00 late fee.

    • Contracting with Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS), allows you to pay your term bill in monthly installments. Contracting with NBS will prevent late fees. Aid will still be applied directly to your bill. You do not have the option of receiving your aid in cash and using this method to pay your bill. Go to www.mnstate.edu, select Current Student and click on eservices, login and select Bills and Payment.

    Student Health Insurance

    Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) has decided to no longer offer health insurance for domestic students starting the 2014-2015 academic year.  Students need to go to the Health Exchange in their home state to purchase health insurance.

    Reciprocity Students

    North Dakota and Wisconsin students attending Minnesota State University may apply for reciprocity on-line or by printing the form and following the directions found at the respective web sites.

    North Dakota students: http://www.ohe.state.mn.us/hesod/NDReciprocity/apply1.cfm
    Wisconsin students: http://heab.state.wi.us/reciprocity/index.html

    South Dakota students: South Dakota students receive reciprocity automatically if you indicated on your application that you are a South Dakota resident. Verification of graduation from a South Dakota high school and/or permanent residency status may be requested if you did not graduate from a South Dakota high school within the last year.

    Federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

    If you wish your parent(s), guardian(s) or others to have access to any information concerning the amount of your term bill you must annually complete the Student Consent to Release of Educational Record Form. Without this completed form, Business Services personnel cannot release billing or financial information to anyone other than the student. This form is on the web at http://www.mnstate.edu/business-services/forms.aspx or available at Business Services in Owens Hall.

    Process an official withdrawal from all classes by contacting the Academic Support Center in Flora Frick, Room 154, Phone: 218-477-4318. You may qualify for reduced tuition and fee charges or a refund. You may also process your withdrawal on line. If you leave the university without processing a withdrawal you will be given all F grades and may be required to repay a portion of financial aid. The last day to withdraw from full term classes is April 20, 2015.

    Students who totally withdraw from the University will be granted a State Refund or charge reduction of tuition and fees based on the following schedule:

    January 12-January 16               100% (Free Drop Days)
    January 20-January 26 75%
    January 27-February 2 50%
    February 3-February 9 25%
    After February 9 0%


    Title IV aid recipients (Pell, SEOG Grants, Subsidized, Unsubsidized, Perkins or Plus Loans) who withdraw before 60% of the term is complete will have refund dollars repaid to their aid sources. Some students may owe a personal repayment for the unearned portion of the Title IV aid they received as determined by a Federal refund calculation. Students can contact Business Services before withdrawing to determine the effect on their aid.
