Missouri State University undergraduate students who were enrolled in some online classes in fall 2020 will receive partial tuition refunds.
The Board of Governors approved the refunds at their Feb. 19 meeting.
MSU-Springfield will use $1.9 million in remaining money from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to provide the refunds.
The university will provide a refund to students based on the undergraduate, online credit hours in which they enrolled on the Springfield campus during the fall 2020 semester, excluding 100% online programs.
“Missouri State changed the class format for many courses due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Rob Moore, director of financial aid. “That led to higher tuition rates for some courses that were changed from seated to online classes. We’re happy we can refund part of those fees to our students.”
Currently enrolled undergraduate students will receive $25-28 per credit hour for each qualified course. Refunds will be automatically applied to the students’ accounts.
