Textbooks - Husson University Bookstore Charge Policy

Husson University financial aid students who have funds in excess of tuition, fees and room and board, are eligible to charge books and supplies at the Husson University Bookstore. Specific dates for bookstore charges will be posted each semester and are generally two weeks before the term begins thru the end of the add/drop period. Any student eligible to charge books must have completed all their documents with the financial aid office. All loan request materials and entrance counseling must be complete.  The charge amount for eligible students is based on the student account charges and the financial aid awards, up to a maximum of $700 per semester. Bookstore charges become part of the student account balance and generally post to the student ledger the following day. In the event there is any loss of financial aid that results in a balance due, the student is responsible to satisfy the debt immediately. Any unpaid balances are subject to late fees and other collection procedures. In addition, students are required to complete a bookstore authorization each semester that will be kept on file in the Student Accounts Office.

Additional Fees

The comprehensive fee is a mandatory fee charged to all students that pays for a variety of services including free flu shots, clubs, activities, and events on campus. It also helps to support student services including the Center for Student Success (OASIS), the Learning Center, and technology improvements. 

All Graduate students enrolled in 6 or more credit hours and all Undergraduate students enrolled in 9 or more credit hours are eligible and are automatically enrolled in the Husson University Student Health Insurance Plan, unless a waiver providing proof of other qualifying insurance is received by September 13, 2016. The Student Health Insurance Program is not available to Extended Learning students, non-Bangor campuses or students enrolled in online courses.  A brochure describing the insurance and premium rate is available at the Student Accounts Office upon request.

An annual professional liability insurance fee of $100.00 is required for Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Pharmacy students.

The room and board rates are for double occupancy in the residence halls. Depending upon availability, students may request a single room. Students occupying single standard rooms will be assessed an additional $690 per semester. Students occupying single suite rooms will be assessed an additional $1,350 per semester. Contact the Residential Life Office for more details. Room and board charges include only meals served while the University is in session. Additional charges will be assessed to those students remaining on campus during vacation periods.

Students may obtain up to 5 copies of their transcript at one time at no charge. A charge of $3.00 is assessed for each transcript over 10 and a fee of $5.00 is assessed for same-day service. Transcript requests must be approved by the Student Accounts Office prior to issuance of the transcript.

A graduation fee of $150 per degree is assessed to all graduating students. The charge is to cover the cost of invitations, diploma and cap and gown. The fee is payable regardless of graduation ceremony attendance.

New Students

All charges and fees must be paid or satisfactory financial arrangements made before a student is allowed to attend classes or enter the residence halls.

Returning and Readmitted Students

Students are not allowed to begin a semester until all previous University charges have been paid in full, unless a bank loan has been authorized and is pending (it will be considered in the readmitting process), or the Student Accounts Office has approved satisfactory arrangements for payment of charges for the current semester.

Payment Plans

Husson offers a protected pay-by-the-month plan. Details are available in the Student Accounts Office.

Under the protected pay-by-the-month plan, the total charges for the semester, net of financial aid, are divided into 4, 5, or 6 equal monthly installments. Normally the payments begin as early as June for the following semester. This plan is administered by a third party. 

Deferred Tuition Plan for Employer Reimbursed Students

The University will defer the tuition for a period of 30 days after grades have been posted for the semester. At the end of the deferment period the account will be reviewed and if full payment has not been applied to the student’s account, the credit/debit card on file will be charged. The completed Deferred Tuition Plan contract must be submitted prior to the end of the add/drop period of each semester. The student’s tuition balance will not be charged interest while participating in this plan.

Student’s Responsibilities:

1. Student must submit a copy of their employer’s reimbursement policy. The policy must be mailed, faxed, or scanned and emailed directly to the Student Accounts Office and received prior to the end of the add/drop period and must be attached to the completed Deferred Tuition Plan contract.

2. Student must provide a credit/debit card which will be stored in a secure environment and will be used to pay for any unpaid portion of tuition/fees if the payment has not been posted by the 30 days after grades have been posted for the semester. If during the course of the semester the card information provided changes, the student must submit the new card information to the Student Accounts Office accordingly. If the card information on file is rejected, the student will be immediately removed from the deferred tuition plan and subject to standard University collection procedures.

3. If tuition reimbursement is less than 100%, the non-reimbursed portion must be paid in full by the student at the time of registration.

4. Maintain good financial and academic standing.

5. Submit a new contract for continued enrollment in the plan each semester prior to the end of the add/drop period.

6. If the employee has financial aid in place to cover the balance the employee is not eligible for deferred tuition, the financial aid is the first payer. 

If any required items are omitted, the deferment cannot be processed and payment will not be deferred. Husson University reserves the right to cancel students from the deferred tuition plan who fail to comply with the requirements of the plan.

Tuition Assistance

Students that are eligible for third party tuition assistance are required to turn in the appropriate documentation reflecting the third party assistance prior to the end of the add/drop period. The student’s tuition balance will not be charged interest if there is a record of tuition assistance on file and it covers the whole balance on the account.

Tuition Refund Policy

Students are enrolled for the entire semester, not for a period of attendance. Paying fees in installments does not result in a fractional contract. A student who withdraws from school prior to the completion of his/her program of study, either during a semester or between semesters, must file an official form of withdrawal with the Registrar’s Office.

Tuition refund credits are computed from the official date of withdrawal. Nonattendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal. Full tuition credits will be given for individual course withdrawals during the standard add/drop period each term. For individual course withdrawals after the standard add/drop period, tuition and fees will not be adjusted.

Students who are academically or administratively dismissed will receive a refund in accordance with the refund policy below.

Financial aid will be proportionately charged back in accordance with government regulations.

For program withdrawals during the regular academic year or for terms that are 15 or 12 weeks in length, refund credits will be prorated on the balance of tuition and other charges, after deducting the tuition deposit and other nonrefundable fees, using the following schedule:

Week of Term Refund Percentage
During the First week100%
During the Second Week85%
During the Third Week70%
During the Fourth Week55%
During the Fifth Week40%
During the Sixth Week25%
After the Sixth Week0%

Summer Session withdrawals will be prorated using the following schedule:

Withdrawal Date Refund Percentage
Withdrawal on or before the number of days equal to the number of weeks a class is scheduled. 100%
For example, for a six week course, a refund will be granted through the sixth day.
After the number of days equal to the number of weeks a class is scheduled.0%

Residence Refund Policy

Students who withdraw from the University or are academically or administratively dismissed, must complete and sign a Residence Withdrawal form and turn in his or her room key and student ID card to the Director of Residential Life. A refund credit will be prorated on the residence charges in accordance with the same schedule as is used for tuition refunds (see Tuition Refund Policy above).
