Financial Obligation Agreement
A Financial Obligation Agreement (FOA) has now been incorporated into Campus Connection. This will require students who register for classes in spring semester 2014 (term 1430) and beyond to acknowledge that they understand registering for classes results in a financial obligation. This acknowledgement is made once per term by clicking on an "Agree" button after the agreement is presented in the registration process. The FOA service indicator (also known as a hold) will be automatically removed once the student accepts the FOA for that term.

Each semester students are required to accept the financial terms and conditions outlined by MSU in order to continue their enrollment. Students will not have access to enroll until they have agreed to the FOA. By accepting MSU’s financial agreement, students are agreeing to pay for services rendered by MSU and to abide by all policies and procedures.

The FOA can be found in Campus Connection at the following navigation: Main Menu > Student Center. Under the Finances section, select Financial Obligation Agreement. For additional information, please contact the Business Office at 858-3333 or 858-3233.

Reminder: It is important to verify all personal data (e.g., name, address, and social security number) to ensure receipt of complete and accurate information from MSU. If a discrepancy is found, please contact the Registrar’s Office.

Change in Class Drop Recording Process
Starting Fall 2007 semester, a "W" will be recorded on your official transcript for dropped classes after the 7th class day of semester classes and the 4th class day of summer and eight-week classes (100 % drop date).

Please know that you will still be able to drop yourself from a class via CampusConnection up until the 42nd day of the term for semester classes and the 21st day of the term for summer or eight-week classes. However, a W will appear on your official transcript if a class is dropped after the 100 % drop date.

Also, please remember that all but the last course can be dropped via CampusConnection. Students who wish to completely withdraw from the University must file a Withdrawal Notice with the Financial Aid Office or on the MSU website at Student Services>Financial Aid>Withdrawal Procedures.

If you have any questions regarding this change in policy, please contact the Registrar's Office at 858-3345.

Do not use the CampusConnection to drop/withdraw from all classes at MSU. If you are dropping or withdrawing from ALL CLASSES at MSU, you must complete and submit the withdrawal form.

Note: Upon receiving the form in Financial Aid, it will be forwarded to the proper offices to ensure all student obligations have been met. The withdrawal date posted on the student transcript and all refunds will be based on the date the initial form was received in the Financial Aid office.
