What is the Capital Improvements fee?

Beginning in Fall 2013, the University of Mississippi will charge a Capital Improvements Fee to fund facility construction and improvements.  The fee will be charged per term to all students on a per-hour, prorated basis capped at $50 based on the number of full-time hours required by a student’s program of study.  All proceeds generated from this fee will be used for the repair, renovation, or construction of student facilities.

How do I get my financial aid refund?

Financial Aid refunds issued by direct deposit are processed on a daily basis; however, financial aid refunds issued by check are processed only one time per week. Upon request, refunds of credit balances, other than financial aid, will be processed bi-weekly. Replacement checks will not be issued until 15 days after the date the original check was issued. Students are strongly encouraged to setup direct deposit for quick processing of their refunds. Direct deposit can be setup here.
