Payment Policies

Student Accounts Holds
Failure to pay outstanding charges or complete required exits for loans by the established deadlines will result in a hold being placed on a student’s account. A hold could result in one or more of the following:

  • Financial Hold prohibits students from registering for courses, validating each semester to continue enrollment, receiving transcripts, and prevents graduating seniors from receiving their diploma. Students can be administratively withdrawn from Morningside College for large outstanding balances.
    • A financial hold will be removed from a student’s account when the unfulfilled financial obligation is satisfied.
  • Exit Interview Hold is placed on students who need to complete an exit interview for Perkins and/or Institutional Loans
    • Please contact Shawnna Krommenhoek at 712-274-5294 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for assistance in completing exit interviews

Refund Check Policy
Refund checks are only created for students who have an actual credit on their account. Checks will not be created for anticipated credits. Refunds on student accounts are typically made for the following reasons:

  • Financial Aid is greater than the charges for the semester
  • Official withdrawal from the college

Students who need a credit balance refund should fill out a check request in the Business Office, call 712-274-5117, or send requests to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) before 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday in order for the refund to be disbursed that Friday. Students are encouraged to use the direct deposit option. Direct deposit will disburse the funds to your designated account on Friday.  Paper checks will be available for pick-up in the Business Office after 11:00 a.m. on Friday morning or mailed out on Friday. Paper checks are made payable to the student only.
