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 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 $800 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. 

First Day® Complete is a course material program through Barnes and Noble College that lowers the cost and ensures students have access to all their required course materials on or before the first day of class. The cost for this program is $24 per credit hour and students have the ability to opt out. Physical books will be conveniently packaged and provided to students on a rental basis, and digital materials will be delivered directly to CANVAS.

Audit Tuition

Audit tuition is one half of the applicable undergraduate or graduate tuition rate.  Audit enrollments are assessed the same student fees as credit enrollments. 

Additional Fees

The comprehensive fee is a mandatory fee charged to all students.  It pays for a variety of services including student 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. The fee amount is determined based on credit hours enrolled.

The new student fee is a nonrefundable fee that is required of all new students. The fee helps to offset administrative and other costs involved in welcoming students to the university.

The international student services fee is assessed to all degree seeking international students and covers enrollment and immigration advising services; government compliance and reporting; application fee waivers; orientation program;  language assessment; peer mentor support services; student success guidance; visa services (Social Security Number acquisition; Curricular Practical Training and Optional Practical Training support, etc.); and other administrative services. 

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 5, 2023 for fall and January 23, 2024 for spring entry students. 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 Office of Student Accounts upon request.

Deferred Tuition Plan for Employer Reimbursed Students

If a student relies upon an employer's tuition reimbursement plan to pay for courses, Husson University allows students to defer tuition payment until 30 days after the grades for those courses have been posted. Receiving an Incomplete or an "X" grade (failure for excessive absences) begins the 30 day period for payment.  The deferment allows for sufficient time for students and employers to process payments.

Rights and Responsibilities:

  • Students must submit a deferred tuition contract online for each enrollment period. 

  • If tuition reimbursement is less than 100%, the student is responsible for any amount not reimbursable by the employer.  This amount is due by the semester’s financial clearance deadline.

  • Financial aid awarded to pay account balance will be relied upon by Husson University instead of the deferred tuition plan.  

  • Additionally, if reimbursement from the company has not been paid to the University by the end of the 30 day period after the grades have been posted, the student will no longer be eligible for this deferred payment option and will be subject to standard University collection procedures.

  • Husson University reserves the right to deny or cancel enrollment in the deferred tuition plan for students who are not in good financial or academic standing.

  • This plan and the supporting agreements are subject to change at the discretion of Husson University.

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. Information on tuition assistance can be upload via the student portal, to upload a document via the student portal login and navigate to “Uploads” on the menu, click “Upload documents to Student Accounts” and follow the prompts to complete the upload.  

Financial Clearance

The University expects the student to be financially responsible for their student account balance. All accounts at the University are in the student’s name regardless of the source of payment. Invoices are mailed directly to the student’s billing address on file and they are also available electronically, All charges are payable in full by the financial clearance deadline for the semester.

Financial clearance is a term used to verify that a student will be attending classes for which he/she has registered in a given semester and that all financial obligations associated with the registration have been settled. The University’s fall financial clearance date is August 1st and the spring financial clearance date is January 8th.  The dates will be adjusted to the next business day if they fall on a weekend calendar day. Students who are not financially cleared will be subject to the following administrative sanctions:

The University will contact all students who are not financially cleared by the semester due date.  If the student has not made financial arrangements to pay their student account balance there will be a hold placed on the student account. Financial arrangements would consist of paying the account in full, signing up for a payment plan, alternative loan(s) or combination of payment methods to fulfill the balance. 

Husson University offers many options to pay tuition on time:

  • We accept cash, check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
  • Interest-free monthly payment plans through a third party:
  • Employer Reimbursement Deferment Tuition Plan/Third Party Authorizations
  • Financial Aid Awards (must complete a FAFSA in order to receive federal aid)

For Recipients of Chapter 33 and Chapter 31 benefits only:

Husson University will not deny a student access to classrooms, libraries or other institutional facilities, make the student borrow money to cover the cost while waiting for payment from the VA or charge a student a late fee or penalty while we are awaiting payment from the VA for tuition and fees. If the balance due is not related to tuition and fees Husson University may implement the same holds or penalties that apply to students not using Chapter 33 or Chapter 31 benefits.  

Husson University requires that students wishing to use their Chapter 33 or Chapter 31 benefits submit a request for certification online at In addition to this request, students are also required to submit a Certificate of Eligibility, a Form 1905 or a Statement of Benefit from the VA no later than the first day of classes.

This policy is written to comply with Section 103, PL 115-407 and ends when the VA makes payment or 90 days after the date the school certifies or invoices for tuition and fees provided the student submitted the required request for certification and required documentation outlining benefit eligibility. 

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. Financial aid policies can be found at

For program withdrawals during the regular academic year or for terms that are 15 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 week *Please note for 7 week sessions there are no adjustments after this period. 100%
During the Second Week 85%
During the Third Week 70%
During the Fourth Week 55%
During the Fifth Week 40%
During the Sixth Week 25%
After the Sixth Week 0%

Program withdrawals during 7 week terms for fully online students will be prorated using the following schedule:

Withdrawal Date Refund Percentage
Withdrawal on or before add/drop of the term 100%
During the Second Week 50%
During the Third Week 25%
After the Third Week 0%

Non-standard semester 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). 

Return of Unearned Military Tuition Assistance (TA) Funds

Military Tuition Assistance is a U.S. Department of Defense program. Tuition Assistance rules vary by branch of service and even vary between different units within the same branch depending on whether the unit is active, reserve, or National Guard. Tuition Assistance funds will be applied to tuition costs only.  

Military Tuition Assistance Recipients

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded.  When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded. To comply with the U.S. Department of Defense policy, Husson University will return any unearned TA funds on a proportional basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. In instances when a Service member stops attending due to military service obligation, Husson University will work with the affected Service member to identify solutions that will not result in a student debt for the returned portion.


A student’s official withdrawal date is used as the last date of attendance and to calculate earned percentage of TA. A student’s official withdrawal date is determined by using the last date of attendance that is documented and submitted to the Office of the Registrar.  

Once the last date of attendance has been determined, Husson University will recalculate a student’s TA eligibility based on the following formula:

Number of days completed/Total days of the course (start to end date) = Percent of TA earned

The amount of TA funding that is earned is determined on a pro-rata basis. Once a student has attended at least 60% of the period for which TA funds were approved, the student is considered to have earned 100% of the TA funds.

For example: If a student enrolled for a term that was 109 days in length, attended 40 days of classes, the percent earned would be 36% (40/109 = .36). 64% of tuition assistance paid to the University must be returned possibly creating a balance on the student’s account.

In another example, if a student enrolled for a term that was 109 days in length, attended 75 days of classes, the percent earned would be 68% (68/109 = .68).  Since the student had completed at least 60% of the period for which TA funds were approved the student is considered to have earned 100% of the TA funds and there would be no return of TA.

Please note this policy is different than the institution’s standard refund policy.

Schedule of Return of Unearned TA Funds to the government:

15 Weeks in Length:

Week of Term Refund Percentage
During First Week 100%
During Second Week 90%
During Third Week 80%
During Fourth Week 70%
During Fifth Week 60%
During Sixth Week 50%
During Seventh Week 40%
During Eighth Week 30%
