Interest Charges on Past Due Accounts

The Miami University Board of Trustees authorizes charging interest equal to the then current prime rate plus 3 percent on charges that are not paid within 90 days of the due date. Full collection costs may also be charged if it becomes necessary to send a past due account to a third party collection agent.

Financial Obligations

The Board of Trustees authorizes the Bursar to restrict any services, including release of all academic records of a student or former student (e.g., grades, diploma, and transcripts), and registration for future semesters, until any past due amount owed to the university, including, but not limited to, fees, tuition, charges, fines, and loans due to the university, is paid in full. Past due means unpaid for 60 or more days after the due date, except that an account paid with a bad check is past due on the day the check is returned from the bank. All registration-related fees are considered due on the first day of the term for which they are assessed.

Refund of Charges

Questions about refunds should be directed to the Cashier's Office. The date when you withdraw or drop is the date that you formally withdraw or drop at the Office of the Registrar.

If you withdraw from the university or drop below full-time hours, your fees will be refunded as follows.*

Withdrawal/Refund
Before 5 p.m. of the 5th day of the term: 100 percent
Before 5 p.m. of the 8th day of the term: 90 percent
Before 5 p.m. of the 20th day of the term: 50 percent
Before 5 p.m. of the 30th day of the term: 35 percent

*When a student withdraws completely from the University during a semester, the Office of Student Financial Assistance is required to calculate, using a statutory pro rata schedule, the amount of federal Title IV financial aid the recipient has earned for the semester. This schedule is provided by the U.S. Department of Education. The amount of title IV financial aid earned is based on the length of time the student spent in academic attendance. The Office of the Registrar will inform the Office of Student Financial Assistance of the date the student notified Miami of the intent to withdraw. This date is used to calculate aid eligibility. If you are thinking about withdrawing, please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance for information on how it will affect your financial aid.
