It is important for you to understand your financial responsibilities when registering for classes at MSU Denver.


  • Full payment of tuition and fees is due by the payment deadline. Any unpaid balance will incur a 4% service charge. To avoid the 4% service charge you must either:
    • Pay in full by the payment deadline (see available payment methods),
    • Enroll in a Payment Plan by the payment deadline
    • If you are a financial aid student – have your financial aid awarded by the payment deadline.
  • Financial aid and sponsored students must be awarded by the payment deadline to avoid a 4% service charge.
  • Changes in registration that result in additional tuition and fees not paid by the payment deadline, may incur a 4% service charge.


  • You are responsible for verifying the balance of tuition and fees:
    • Log in to the Student Hub portal and select the “Student Financial Services” Tab.
    • Click on “Account Summary by Term” to view and verify your tuition and fees charges.
  • DO NOT WAIT FOR A BILL. If you have any questions about the charges or need to request a bill, please feel free to contact our office.
  • YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DROPPING CLASSES BY THE PUBLISHED DROP DEADLINES IF YOU DO NOT PLAN TO ATTEND. Failure to do so may result in charges incurred on your student account. Specific refund dates for classes can be found on your Student Detail Schedule on the Student Hub.


If you do not fulfill your financial obligations by published deadlines:

  • A 4% service charge will be assessed on any unpaid balance after the payment deadline.
  • A 1.5% service charge will be assessed to any unpaid balance on the 7th working day of each month thereafter (See Important Dates).
  • Accounts not paid in full by the payment deadline, are considered delinquent. A Balance Due Hold will be placed on those accounts with balances greater than $2000.00. Balance Due Hold will prevent:
    • Registration for current or next semesters.
    • Release of diploma.
  • After the end of the semester, delinquent accounts will be turned over to a collection agency in accordance with Colorado law, and collection fees of up to 40% will be added to your account balance. The collection agency may report delinquent accounts to the national credit bureau.


EVERY STUDENT ELECTRONICALLY SIGNS A FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND PROMISSORY NOTE AGREEMENT UPON REGISTRATION. To view the full details of the student’s financial responsibility, please view the “Registration Contract” section below. 


It is important that you know about your financial responsibility in relation to MSU Denver even before you register for classes. Students electronically sign the Financial Responsibility and Promissory Note Agreement (FRA) every time they enroll in a class. The official FRA statement can be found below.
