Fees and Expenses

^Top

Registration fees are payable at the Bursar’s Office prior to the opening of classes and in accordance with instructions issued with your bill. For students registering during late registration, fees are assessed as part of the registration process and are due at that time. If you make changes to your class schedule, please be sure to come to the Bursar’s Office to get a revised bill or go to http://www.shawnee.edu, click on “MySSU”, log in, then click on “Billing Information”, then click on “Course and Fee Statement”, then click on “Generate my Course and Fee Statement”, then click on “View my Course and Fee Statement” to print a copy of your bill.  No additional bills will be mailed to you as a result of dropping and adding classes.

The Bursar’s Office is located on the second floor of the University Center. This places it near the Offices of the Registrar and Financial Aid and should make it easier for you to—in one place—take care of the ‘‘business’’ of going to college.

Fees may be paid by cash, check, money order, Visa, or MasterCard. It is important that you retain all fee receipts. Payment of fees owed is a prerequisite for continuing enrollment, and you should have sufficient funds (cash and/or financial aid) to cover expenses. Shawnee State University is not required to furnish services (registration, transcripts, etc.) to a student with unpaid fees.  Or use the ONLINE payment option.

Now you can pay your SSU bill online. 

For your convenience, Shawnee State University now offers CASHNet, a safe and easy way for you to pay your tuition bill online. CASHNet is available through the Billing Information – My Account Info section under the “Student” tab on MySSU. To use CASHNet, you may either set-up an e-check payment by providing your bank checking account number and bank routing number (both numbers appear on the bottom of your checks) or you may provide a credit card number.

NO SERVICE FEE will be charged for E-CHECK PAYMENTS. A service fee of 2.75% of your transaction amount bill will be charged for credit card transactions. Accepted credit cards online include Mastercard, Discover, American Express, and Diner’s Club.

Student Load

Undergraduate students scheduled for 12-18 credit hours are considered full-time. Undergraduate students scheduled for fewer than 12 credit hours are considered part-time. The permission of the registrar is required for you to schedule over 20 hours of credit. A maximum of 24 hours may be attempted, if permission is granted. Graduate students scheduled for 9-16 credit hours are considered full-time.  Graduate students scheduled for fewer than 9 credit hours are considered part-time.  Please refer to the fee schedule for the rate per credit hour. 

Certain undergraduate students are restricted from carrying a course load greater than twelve hours. These students include first-time entering freshmen placed into two or more developmental education courses and any student placed on academic probation for a second consecutive semester. A student affected by this policy may appeal to the director of the Student Success Center. In special cases, when this policy would jeopardize a student’s participation in a degree program, a department chairperson may also request to waive the twelve-hour limit.

Transcript Fee

The University will produce an official transcript upon written request from the student. See the above list for the transcript fee.

Responsibility for Fees

A student may register for classes by submitting a registration form in person or via the Web. With the act of registering, a student promises to pay all tuition and fees for the quarter. This financial obligation may only be discharged by paying in full, by choosing the Short Term Loan option (payment plan),  by having adequate financial aid to pay the fees, or by withdrawing from Shawnee State University by the published deadlines. Please review the SSU course schedule, published in advance of each semester, for details.

Short Term Loan

Shawnee State University provides a Short Term Loan (a payment plan option) that can help you with the payment of tuition, books, and certain fees. Information about the Short Term Loan is available in the Bursar’s Office.

Bad Check Policy

Payment of fees owed is a prerequisite to official enrollment, and you should have sufficient funds (cash and/or financial aid) to cover these expenses. A check returned for insufficient funds is a federal offense and constitutes nonpayment of your obligation to Shawnee State University. Therefore, any student who has a check returned for insufficient funds shall be subject to all related fees; and, until the same is cleared, the student shall be considered in noncompliance with institutional policy and may be administratively dismissed. Any student administratively dismissed due to a bad check has no recourse for readmission for the current semester.

Student Insurance

Student health insurance coverage is available to all full-time students. If you wish to participate in this plan, please complete and return the enrollment form along with your payment to the insurance company. Enrollment forms may be picked up in the Bursar’s Office.

Refund of Fees

Continuing students dropping hours through the twenty first day of the semester (for full semester courses only), when such changes result in a reduction of fees, are entitled to receive the reduction.  Withdraws/drops made after the twenty first day of the semester  will result in no refund.  Students who officially withdraw/drop from Shawnee State receive a refund, if due, based upon the following schedule (for full semester courses only).  If you do not officially withdraw or drop, you are not eligible for any refund and fees assessed are due and payable.

Withdrawal/Drop Dates
 

Full Semester (Courses Only)
 
Thru the first 7 calendar days of the semester 100% of Tuition
8 to 21 calendar days of semester 90% of Tuition
starting the 22 calendar day 0% of Tuition

Please Note: Questions concerning the above information should be referred to the Bursar’s Office. Students wishing to see examples of these refund calculations may do so in the Bursar’s Office.

Late Payment Policy

A late payment fee is assessed when you fail to make payment in accordance with the due dates established by the Bursar’s Office. Such fees are assessed in accordance with the fee schedule approved by the University’s Board of Trustees.
