Fall 2020 COVID-19 Information and FAQ's
Will students receive credit for their room charges if the residence halls need to close during the Fall 2020 semester due to COVID-19?
Yes. Students who are required to leave campus will receive prorated adjustments; if these adjustments result in an over-payment, then the student will receive a refund.
Will students receive a credit for unused money on their meal plans if the residence halls close to due to COVID-19?
Yes. Students will receive a pro-rated adjustment for mandatory meal plans; if these adjustments result in an over-payment, then the student will receive a refund.
If I have a balance due will I still receive a refund for room and board due to COVID-19 closures?
If the residence halls are closed during the Fall due to COVID19, students living in residence hall, who move out completely , will receive a pro-rated adjustment of their room and board costs for the semester. The credit will be applied to any outstanding balance owed to the University first; if the adjustment results in an over-payment on the account, then a refund will be issued.
Will students receive a tuition refund or a reduction of tuition/fees?
We hope the semester will not be disrupted by a shift in learning modes such as face-to-face or remote learning due to a resurgence of COVID-19 cases. If a shift is required, tuition and fees for the fall 2020 semester will be the same, regardless of the method in which the University delivers your academic experience. The tuition and fees that you pay are in exchange for learning, academic credit, and/or certain non-academic services that will be provided to you, regardless of the format in which they’re offered. The University cannot guarantee an on-campus experience, because health and safety concerns related to COVID-19 and its spread on campus, and/or directives from appropriate federal and state health authorities, may require that your academic experience during the fall 2020 semester be offered though a hybrid model of on-campus and remote experiences or entirely remotely. Any interruption due to COVID-19 that results in a change in the way your academic services are being provided, including any suspension of in-person instruction and campus activities, will not entitle you to a reduction or reimbursement of tuition or fees.
Fall Billing Information
The Student Accounts Office generates transactions for tuition, fees, housing, meal plans, mandatory fees, general deposits, and other miscellaneous charges on a student's account. We manage the invoicing and collection of payments to a student's account and process student refunds.
This publication contains Day Division, Continuing Education, and Graduate student information on procedures for paying the Student e-Bill, refund policies, health insurance requirements, and other special reminders.
Spring e-Bills are being sent to the student’s FSU e-mail on November 26, 2019. Payment of the entire bill balance is due on December 16, 2019. The payment plan is available on www.framingham.afford.com, through Nelnet/Tuition Management Systems.
To satisfy your Fall 2020 semester balance, you must ensure that the following requirements are completed:
1.) Notify our office that you will or will not be attending this term. This can be done by clicking the “Required Notification to FSU on Attendance” link in your myFramingham account. Simply withdrawing from classes does not officially withdraw you from the university; without your response to the “Required Notification to FSU on Attendance” you may still incur charges.
2.) If you are a full time student (enrolled in 3 credits or more) you must waive or enroll in the Health Insurance plan offered by the University. Students that waive in the health insurance during the Fall semester do not need to waive again. If you already have health insurance coverage, you must complete the online Health Insurance Waiver form. That form can be found at the following website: https://www.universityhealthplans.com/letters/letter.cgi?group_id=217. Any student who does not waive or enroll in the university's health insurance will be auto-enrolled.
3.) Make arrangements to fully satisfy any remaining Spring semester balance on your account. Monthly payment plans are available through Nelnet/Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to assist with any remaining balance that may not be fully covered by financial aid. Contact Nelnet/TMS at www.framingham.afford.com or 800-722-4867.
