Pay Tuition & Fees
If you register for classes, the University holds you financially responsible for that registration. Payment of tuition and fees is due by the deadline listed in the printed course schedule and the Academic Calendar. Even if you do not receive a bill, you must pay your tuition and fees by the published deadline. There will NOT be a University initiated drop for non-payment. You must drop your courses during the 100% refund period to avoid the obligation to pay. You are responsible for tuition and fees for courses not dropped during the 100% refund period.
Failure to meet financial obligations
University policy requires a financial hold be placed on your record if you fail to meet your financial obligations. This hold will prevent any enrollment, transcript, or graduation activity. Interest, late fees, or collection costs will be added to your account. The past due debt will be reported to a local credit bureau. Unpaid tuition and fees will be referred to a collection agency and/or collected via garnishment of State of Alaska Permanent Fund Dividends (PFDs).
Agency sponsored students:
All students who are sponsored by an Agency (WIA, DVR, VA, etc.) must contact their agency for details on how to obtain funding and the procedures required to register for classes. This must be done for each semester that they wish to register for.
Agency sponsored students are required to have all appropriate paperwork processed through Mat-Su College Accounting located in the Campus Cache by the payment deadline. If the appropriate paperwork has not been received by the payment deadline, the student MAY be dropped from their classes.
Financial aid deferred tuition and fees:
If you have proof of approved financial aid you may obtain an MSC deferment form from the Financial Aid Office. Call 745-9719 or 745-9762. This deferment form must be turned in to the cashier by the payment deadline to avoid assessment of late payment fees.
Tuition Management System (TMS):
TMS is an organization that handles tuition and fees in monthly payments for colleges and universities. There is an initial enrollment fee for semester or annual registration. For more information call 745-9739 option 3 or see the MSC Accounts Receivable Supervisor in the Campus Cache (JKB 109). Call TMS at 800-722-4867 or visit Mat-Su College Payment Center.
