Quick Facts

Students are responsible for tuition and fee liability incurred if, for any reason, tuition is not paid in full within a reasonable length of time. A student will also be held responsible for balances due to the loss/reduction of financial aid or other credit originally anticipated due to their ineligibility, attendance, incomplete paperwork, etc. Students that are placed at an outside collection agency will be responsible for the collection, interest, late and legal fees.

What payment options are available to students with a past due balance?
If you have a past due balance from a prior semester please contact the collections department to sign-up for an in-house payment arrangement. In-house payment agreements are only available to balances incurred from a prior semester. However, if you fail to make your payment on time your account could be sent to collections.

How can a student confirm if they have been placed in an outside collection agency?

What is the Margrove Refund/Withdrawal Policy?

If you cannot complete a course or if you cannot attend any courses for which you registered, you must withdrawal ("drop") officially from the class or from the College.

The date on which the Registrar’s Office receives and signs the withdrawal request will be the official date of withdrawal and will determine the amount of any adjustment of tuition, fees and financial aid after classes have begun.

All refunds will first be applied to any indebtedness which you may have with the College.

If you need to withdraw from one or more classes, you must obtain a withdrawal form from the Registrar’s Office or Enrollment Center.

If you need to withdraw from all classes for the semester, you must contact the Office of Academic Advising and Career Services to complete a "Withdrawal from College" form.

If you withdraw from the College and are the recipient of Title IV funds, they will be subject to the prorated calculations for determining the refund.

The College will use the following table to determine your refundable tuition and fees

Refunds are calculated on the basis of the number of class sessions scheduled to be completed at the time of the withdrawal, not the number of class sessions attended by the student.

If you do not officially drop your classes within the specified add/drop period or withdraw before the designated deadlines (see Academic Calendar), you are responsible for full tuition and fees for these courses.

Students may be eligible to receive a refund check from Marygrove College when payments posted to their student account exceed tuition and fees charged. Student can log onto the Webadvisor and check the Account Summary link to confirm their refund eligibility.

For Example:

  • If posting of Title IV Financial Aid (Pell, SEOG, & Stafford Loans) results in a credit balance on your Student Account. A refund check will be mailed to your permanent address within 14 days of the aid posting to your student account.
  • If your credit balance is a result of a Parent PLUS loan posting to your account, a check will be mailed to the borrower of the loan within 14 days.

Refund checks are mailed to the permanent address that you have provided to Marygrove College. If your address is incorrect, you must show proper documentation through the Registrar’s Office.

All refunds are reviewed for eligibility prior to processing. If you become ineligible for Financial Aid, all balances due to the reduction or loss of Financial Aid funds are the responsibility of the student.

It is College policy that all refunds are mailed to the current address on file. Refund checks CANNOT be picked up at the Business Office for any reason.


Additional fees may be required as course fees, and are specified in the Marygrove College schedule of classes. Please be advised tuition and fees are subject to change.

Upon registering for courses all students will be required to accept financial responsibility for all courses that they enroll in.

Students eligible for financial aid grants and loans from state and federal sources can defer tuition payments based upon acceptance and receipt of these awards. If, for any reason, these awards are not forthcoming within a reasonable length of time, the full balance of tuition and fees is due and payable upon the demand of the College. Should it be necessary to place a delinquent account with a collection agency, all fees — including reasonable attorney fees — become the responsibility of the student.

Tuition and fees are payable by the payment dates listed below. For students pre-registering for classes, statements will be mailed to their permanent address approximately 4-6 weeks before classes begin. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain their permanent address with the Registrar’s Office. All e-mail communication will go to the student’s Marygrove e-mail address only.

Students MUST pay for the entire cost of the semester payment dates listed below or enter into a Tuition Management System (TMS) payment plan for any tuition or fee not covered by financial aid. If you intend to spread payments out over the semester, these payment options involve additional charges and fees.


Tuition Payment Date

Session I: April 17 
Session II: May 1

* Payments online can only be made for charges from the current semester or the semester immediately prior to the current semester. Charges that were incurred prior to this timeframe must either be mailed or made in person.

Penalties for Failure to Keep an Account Current
If you fail to meet your financial payment obligations, you could be required to withdraw from the College during the semester. Semester grades will not be entered into your permanent record if you do not fulfill the obligations of the payment schedule.

You are responsible for the total balance, even if you subsequently withdraw from courses, in accordance with the refund policy. If you are in debt to the College at the end of any term, you will not be able to receive an official transcript or to receive a diploma until the indebtedness has been discharged. If you have an unpaid balance, you will not be allowed to register for a subsequent semester.
