Dear university community,
Our university is committed to doing all that we can to support our students, faculty and staff during this difficult time. At the same time, the university is navigating the rules, regulations and parameters we must follow as a state agency and as a recipient of federal support. With those considerations in mind, we are issuing refunds to eligible students for several Spring 2020 expenses in an effort to help our students and their families.
The university will issue prorated refunds to students who paid for university-sponsored Student Housing, meal plans and parking fees. We are making this announcement now after the Board of Trustees of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) voted to authorize the issuance of refunds for these student expenditures.
Each eligible student will receive a prorated refund to their Bursar account. If the student has a current outstanding balance, the refund will be applied to that balance. All refunds will be prorated for the period from March 16 (the day that classes were scheduled to resume after Spring Break) until May 10 (two days after the end of final exams).
For further information concerning refunds, please visit the FAQ page on the university’s COVID-19 web page or send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We remain committed to doing all that we can to support our university family through this unprecedented time. Stay healthy, stay well and stay safe.
Glenn F. Boyce
