Letter to students: COVID-19 refund policy

April 17, 2020 | 3:00 PM

Dear Students,

I am writing to provide further clarification on several issues that have been the source of many inquiries.
MacMurray College COVID-19 Refund Policy

  • All students are able to complete their spring courses online in a remote learning format, so there will be no refunds for tuition.
  • All students residing on campus received a $2,000 scholarship toward their board fees at the beginning of the spring term. Taking this into account, there will be no room refund, as the scholarship amount exceeded the potential refund amount and would result in a balance due for many students.
  • A refund will be provided for unused meals, payable in mid-May after the close of the semester. Each student account will be reconciled at the end of term to validate any existing balances due to the college. If no balance is due, a pro-rated refund will be disbursed for the period that you did not have access to your dining plan. For most students this will result in a board refund in the amount of $940.26.

Please be sure to check your account balances to determine if you are in arrears or have not been credited with any payments due. 

Finally, I would remind you to please return all rental textbooks and materials to Follett immediately at the end of the spring term. You should use the prepaid shipping vouchers that were emailed to you on April 1 by Follett. Any rentals not returned and received by May 6 will be billed back to your student account and deducted from your board refund.

We regret the extraordinary circumstances during these times and thank you for your attention to these important matters. Please stay home and be well.

Beverly Rodgers
