Don't Get Dropped - for not paying your tuition

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) policy requires that minimum payment criteria must be met 15 days prior to the first day of each semester to avoid an administrative drop of all courses you are enrolled in for the term. In order to ensure your courses are not canceled, please have one of the following payment criteria in place 15 days prior to the first day of classes.

  1. Pay in full using cash, check or credit card.
  2. Create a payment plan. You must make a payment of 15 percent of tuition and fees or $300, whichever is less, and have an active payment plan with FACTS Management Company. To complete a payment plan with FACTS Management, click here.
  3. Apply for federal financial aid. Once you have applied for financial aid and M State has received your application results (FAFSA) from the Department of Education, your courses will be confirmed. To access the FAFSA application, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov
  4. Submit a scholarship or third-party authorization. As soon as M State has received payment in the form of scholarships, third-party authorizations or tuition waivers that meet the minimum down payment of 15 percent or $300, your courses will be confirmed.
  5. Apply for veterans' education benefits and complete the Veteran's Sign-Up form.
 

Manage Your Account Online

You can manage your account online by logging in to SpartanNet and clicking on the E-Services link . Once student tuition and fee bills are posted, there will be messages to indicate whether the payment criteria to avoid an administrative drop has been met or not. If any known payment or financial aid information is not appearing on the online screens, this should be reported for resolution as early as possible.

Students who register and later change their plans for attendance should not rely on the Registration Cancellation For Nonpayment process to complete administrative drops for them. Those who no longer wish to be enrolled must drop their courses via the online registration process and officially withdraw from Minnesota State Community and Technical College for accurate determination of their financial obligation to the college, if any.
