Avoid registration cancellation for non-payment

Minnesota State system policy requires that minimum payment criteria be met each semester to avoid having your courses canceled due to non-payment. To avoid course cancellation, please complete one of the following steps prior to the Registration Cancellation for Non-Payment deadline, which is the sixth business day of each term:

  1. Pay in full using cash, check or credit card.
  2. Make a payment of at least 15% of tuition and fees or $300, whichever is less.
  3. Enroll in a payment plan with FACTS/Nelnet Business Solutions.
  4. 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.
  5. 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% or $300, your courses will be confirmed.
  6. Apply for veterans education benefits and complete the Veterans Sign-Up form.

If you register and later change your plans for attendance, do not rely on the Registration Cancellation for Non-Payment process to drop your classes. If you no longer wish to be enrolled, you must drop your courses through SpartanNet.
