Fees and Costs

General Information

Statements concerning fees are announcements and are not to be regarded as offers to contract. The University reserves the right to change fees and other charges at any time by published notice before the opening of any semester or session.

Courses taken for audit or courses taken for reduced credit or no credit will be counted at their normal credit value in computing the amount of fees to be paid.

It is the student’s responsibility to pay fees and any other financial obligations to the University as they become due. Non-payment of any financial obligation may result in the administrative withdrawal of the student or legal action (at the University’s option). If an outside agency/legal action becomes necessary, the collection costs will be passed on to the student. Records will be held for failure to meet payment deadlines.

If the University removes a student from a course or courses for any reason, charges will be reduced according to the published schedule. Such removal will not forgive any amounts due to the University, and records and enrollment will be held until all obligations are cleared. (See “Transcript/Diploma/Enrollment Hold” policy.)

It is the student’s responsibility to check their Northwest e-mail account often and have his or her permanent address on file in the Registrar’s Office and keep the address updated.

The appeal body for most financial matters is the Student Financial Appeals Committee. Petitions are available in the Cashier’s Office or online at www.nwmissouri.edu/studentaccounts/forms.htm.
