Additionally, you must complete a deferred payment plan form with Student Accounts. Be aware that whenever payment of your tuition is not made in full at the time of registration, but deferred to a future date, there is a mandatory deferment fee of $150.00.

Refunds / Overpayments

Student Accounts has automated the process of issuing refund checks. All credit balances generated by financial aid will be automatically issued and mailed to your preferred address in the Registrar's system.

Please make sure that your address is correct with the office of the Registrar to ensure that you receive your checks.

Past Due Accounts

If a student's account is left unpaid and therefore becomes delinquent, the account will be referred to a collection agency, attorney, or both. In such an event, the student agrees to reimburse the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a minimum of 33 1/3% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees that the university incurs in such collection efforts.

Read More

Transcript/Diploma Requests

You are fully responsible for the payment of all tuition, fees, and other charges.

Consequently, no student will receive a diploma, official or unofficial transcript of credits, or official letters of degree completion until all his/her financial obligations, including any collection and/or attorney fees, to the University are paid in full. 

Any and all payment plans or deferred amounts need to be paid in full prior to release of diploma, transcript, or official letter. Credit card payments are the fastest ways to clear your account and thereby ensure the rapid release of the above items. Payments made by local checks or E-checks (ACH bank transactions) require 10 business days and out-of-state checks require 15 business days to clear the bank before your diploma/transcript/letter will be released by the University.

For Transcript Request

Registration Requirements For Loan Eligibility

To qualify for loans, you must meet the following minimum (half-time) registration requirements:

  • Undergraduate students = 6 credits or more
  • Graduate students = 4 credits or more
  • ANE students = 3 credits or more
  • Doctoral students = 1 credit or more (Education and Social Work doctoral students: 1 credit = half-time; Nursing doctoral students: 3 credits = half-time).

If at any time your credit hours drop below the half-time status, your financial aid loans will be sent back to the lender(s).

Generally, financial aid funds (loans, scholarships, grants) are not disbursed to your student account until after the add-drop period of classes. As a rule of thumb, loans are the first aids to arrive while scholarships and grants trickle in gradually as the semester progresses. You can request a refund of any excess financial aid only after the funds are physically in your account and all charges and fees have been deducted. For more information regarding refund checks please go to Refunds and Overpayments page.

Withdraws & Drops

  • A student who registers but does not attend class(es), or who stops attending class(es) for any reason after the semester has begun, will not be credited back for his/her tuition charges unless officially withdrawn from the university. Several steps must be taken for an official withdrawal:

    1. You must submit a written notice of withdrawal to the office of the Dean of your respective school.
    2. Complete a withdrawal form with your academic advisor (NOTE: only your academic advisor can officially register you for a class; similarly, only he/she can officially remove you from that class).
    3. If you are receiving financial aid, you must obtain the signature of Financial Aid.
    4. Finally, the Registrar's office must enter the withdrawal into the system and sign the form indicating the completion of the process.
    5. If you live on campus, you must complete a Housing Release Form online through your MyHousing account.


    NOTE: Tuition and room on board costs will be credited according to the following refund schedule. To receive a full credit back for all charges, your withdrawal paperwork must be entered by the Registrar's Office before the day your classes begin. Anything, thereafter can be subject to partial or no credit back.

    Read More about Eligibility for Refund.

  • Students who wish to change their registration status after the first three days of class must complete a Withdrawal Form or notify, in writing, their academic advisor/director. Students are also expected to contact the faculty member teaching the course from which they intend to withdraw.

    There is no refund when withdrawing from a course. An unauthorized withdrawal will result in a final grade of "F". Students must withdraw before the final four (4) weeks of class. The effective date of the withdrawal will be the date of formal notification to the Dean of your respected school.

  • Students who wish to change their registration status before the semester begins or during the first three days of class, must contact their academic advisor to complete and sign a Registration Adjustment Form. This form must be turned in to the Office of the Registrar.

    Eligibility for refund after dropping a course: 

    • Prior to the beginning of classes: 100%
    • Through the first three days of classes: 80%
    • After the third day of classes: No Credit

    The above percentages apply to tuition only. Lab and academic fees are NOT refundable.

Flex Accounts

Flexible Dollars Around Campus!

  • "FlexBucs" refers to a line of credit. Upon your request, funds can be placed on your Barry ID card, which can be used around campus as a debit card. This service is available to both resident and commuter students. Specifically, you can use your Flex account dollars at:

    To qualify for "flexible dollars", you must be currently registered for the semester and have in your possession a valid student ID card.

    There are two ways of placing money on to your Flex account:

    • Any excess of financial aid (i.e. loans, grants, scholarships), after the cost of your tuition and fees are covered, can be placed, at your request, on to your card.

    OR

    • At any time during the semester, payments can be made directly to your student account, and then transferred to your ID card. These payments can be done at any time, as often as needed, and for any dollar amount that fits your needs.
  • To check your Flex account's balance or retrieve your unused funds, check your MyBarry account or call the Student Union office at 305-899-4900, (this number is located on the back of your student ID card). They will forward your remaining money back to your main student account (with Student Accounts) and you can then request a refund of this credit if this creates a credit balance on the student account. 

  • Please be aware that when pending financial aid, (your loan(s), grant(s) and scholarship(s), is used toward Flex dollars, the maximum dollar amount that can be granted each term is $800.00. In those isolated circumstances when additional funds are to be approved, an itemized list or invoice from our Follett book store must be presented to Student Accounts. The list/invoice must chronicle the additional books, supplies and/or equipment still needed, along with the total cost of those supplementary item(s) and any assessed tax and fees associated with your purchases. 

Corporate Reimbursement Deferment

In order to defer payment of your tuition to the end of the semester (specifically, until four weeks after the last day of class), you must submit to Student Accounts within the first two weeks of the semester, an official letter from your employer on company stationery. This document is required each semester and must state your eligibility for reimbursement. It must also include the conditions under which your company will pay your tuition and fees (percentage of your tuition charges they are willing to pay, the grade required for reimbursement, and the calendar period it covers).

Additionally, you must complete a deferred payment plan form the Student Accounts to finalize the postponement of your tuition payment to the end of the semester. Be aware that whenever you do not pay your tuition and fees at the time of registration and choose instead to defer payment of your charges to a future date, there is a mandatory, non-refundable deferment fee of $150.00 that will be assessed each semester. Moreover, payment becomes due immediately upon course withdrawal or course failure.

Please call Student Accounts at 305-899-3585 for further information regarding our corporate payment schedules.
