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 18 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 15 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.

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 Student Business Center or online at the Bursar’s Office web pages.

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 peronsal check or an elctronice check (ACH) returned for insufficient funds is a federal offense and constitutes nonpayment of your obligation to Shawnee State University. Therefore, any student who has a personal check or (ACH) 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.

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 (FALL AND SPRING SEMESTERS ONLY)  
Thru the first 5 business days of the semester 100% of Tuition
6 to 12 calendar days of semester 80% of Tuition
13 to 21 calendar days of semester 50% of Tuition
After 21 calendar days of semester 0% of Tuition

For courses that meet less than the Full Semester (Sub Sessions / Intersession) or Summer Semester, please refer to the Bursar’s Office web page for specific dates for each term. Please Note: Questions concerning the above information should be referred to the Student Business Center. Students wishing to see examples of these refund calculations may do so in the Student Business Center.

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.
