Fees and Expenses


Tuition Payment Plan Fall 2021

New Payment Plan Details:

  • CashNet will manage the payment plan.
  • Students will enroll in the payment plan with CashNet.
  • There will be a $35 payment plan enrollment fee per term which is paid directly to CashNet (not charged to the student account).
  • A fee may be assessed for each late payment by CashNet ($10 late fee) and Shawnee State University ($35 late fee) (the total combination late fee will not exceed the current late fees being charges).
  • Do not make any payments on CashNet or at Shawnee State University’s Student Business Center until you are ready to enroll in the Fall 2021 Payment Plan.
  • Select Installment Payment Plans to enroll in the Fall 2021 Payment Plan.
  • Follow CashNet’s steps to finish enrolling in your plan.

The Student Business Center is located on the second floor of the University Center.

Fees may be paid by cash, check or money order at the Student Business Center counters. 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.

For your convenience, Shawnee State University 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 Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, and Diner’s Club.

 

Student Course 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 exceptional 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 personal check or an electronic 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
After the 5th business day 0%  (No Refund)

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. 

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.
