Dear MVSU Community,
For the past several weeks, we have worked diligently to accommodate our students, faculty, staff and University community while adhering to guidelines and regulations set forth by our governing bodies. Today, we received additional directions from the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) regarding the issuance of refunds for student expenditures. Subsequently, I am pleased to announce that we will be providing partial refunds for select Spring 2020 expenses to eligible MVSU students.
The prorated refunds will be issued to students who paid for Spring 2020 expenses, including University-sponsored housing, meal plans and parking fees. Scholarship payments will not count toward fees paid by students. The refund will cover the period of March 16 through May 8. Each eligible student will receive the prorated refund to their student account. If the student currently has an outstanding balance, the refund will be applied towards that balance first.
For further information regarding the refund of select Spring 2020 Expenses, please visit this FAQ page available on the University’s COVID-19 webpage. Additional correspondence regarding refunds will be sent to MVSU students in the upcoming week.
As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, we hope that this gesture will provide some welcomed relief to our students and their families. I hope that each of you stay healthy and safe as we continue to work together to keep “Valley in Motion.”
Dr. Jerryl Briggs, Sr.
