Welcome to the Business Office
Everything you need to know about understanding your bill, making your payments, and getting refunds is available through this site. As students and parents, you will be conducting business with our office over the next several years. We would like to make your experience a pleasant one. In order to alleviate confusion about payment schedules, payment methods, and other important issues, we have created a web-site packed with useful information.
Purpose of the Business Office
The business office is responsible for billing and collecting tuition, fees, campus housing, and other university-related charges. The office also invoices third-party agencies, audits MSU student accounts, and processes student refunds. Our office is also responsible for processing deposits for university departments. We hope you find the information here useful. We are also interested in your experiences and welcome any feedback.

Effective August 1 2010, a 2.75% convenience fee, approved by the Board of Regents, will be assessed on all credit card (MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) payments for tuition/fees. A convenience fee covers charges assessed by credit card companies for providing the service. Due to VISA association rules regarding convenience fees, VISA cards can no longer be an accepted form of credit/debit card payment. To avoid the convenience fee, you can pay using the web check payment option. Such a measure allows MSU to focus its budget on the entire student body and on the academic mission of the university.
