MTSU Business Office / Registration

Murfreesboro, TN 37132
Please read the following instructions carefully if you have applied for financial aid for Spring 2014. If your financial aid has been approved, Authorized or memoed Aid (pending aid) will show on your bill. (See detail explanation below)
Authorized or memoed Aid will show for PLUS loans. If you are scheduled to receive a Spring PLUS loan that must be used to pay fees, and your loan does not show on your bill, go to the Financial Aid Office by January 6.
If your bill shows your fees will be paid in full by financial aid, you must access RaiderNet to confirm you will attend MTSU this spring semester and finalize your registration before January 9, at 4:30 p.m. You will be given a CONFIRMATION NUMBER when your confirmation is complete. Write down the CONFIRMATION NUMBER. This is your proof that you have completed the confirmation process. Your class schedule will be dropped if you do not confirm your registration by 6:00 p.m. on January 9. (See How do I confirm? )
If you are signed up for Direct Deposit or a SunTrust reloadable paycard by January 9, your refund will be direct deposited to your bank checking or savings account or your paycard and will be available beginning January 16 provided your aid has been processed and applied to your student account. You also have the option of having all or a portion of your credit balance transferred to your RAIDER FUND$ account. (See What is a RAIDER FUND$? )
The deadline to sign up for early refunds on Direct Deposit or transfers to Raider Fund$ is January 9. The deadline to sign up for the SunTrust Reloadable Paycard at the Business Office in Cope 103 is January 2. Students may sign up for direct deposit or the paycard after this date, but the refund will not be sent to the bank account until a week later.
If fees will not be paid in full by the financial aid credits, the balance due on your bill must be paid before January 9, at 4:30 p.m. You will be dropped from your classes if the balance due is not paid.
If you expect to receive financial aid for the term, but awards are not shown on your bill, contact the Financial Aid Office before January 6 at (615) 898-2830 so that problems can be resolved before the fee payment deadline.
LOANS-- Federal Direct, Parent PLUS, Perkins, and MTSU Loans
You must be registered at least half time to be eligible to receive loan funds (six (6) undergraduate hours, five (5) graduate hours).
First-time borrowers and transfer students must have an entrance interview and sign your mastor promissory note before Federal Direct loan funds can be credited to their accounts.
If financial aid credits show on your bill under the heading of Authorized Aid (memoed aid), these are the amounts of Federal Direct or Parent PLUS loans guaranteed, Perkins loans, scholarships, grants, or awards that have been approved for Spring 2014. The actual aid will not be credited to your account until immediately prior to the start of classes and/or until all required paperwork is completed.
All MTSU Foundation loan borrowers must come in person and sign promissory notes before loan checks can be released. Confirm registration as soon as you get your bill, then come to sign notes and endorse checks at the Business Office (Cope 101) January 16 - 20.
All Perkins loan borrowers must have signed the disclosure statement for the pending disbursement before the loan will feed to their student accounts. This disclosure statement will have been mailed to the borrower's permanent address prior to the first day of classes.
Authorized aid is for billing and confirmation information purposes only. IT IS NOT ACTUAL AID. It has not been credited to your account and is not available for refund purposes. It is pending aid. If for any reason your actual aid cannot be processed after you are registered or if you withdraw or otherwise become ineligible before actual aid is applied to your account, you will still be responsible for unpaid fees. Some of the reasons your actual aid may not be credited are: you did not sign your promissory note; you dropped below the required number of hours; you became academically ineligible; you did not make satisfactory academic progress; you did not complete all required paperwork; or you did not complete your entrance interview.
Students whose bill shows they do not owe money because their fees will be paid in full with financial aid, loans, third party, or other credits must confirm. Students who confirm their registration on RaiderNet will be given a CONFIRMATION NUMBER. Students must write down and keep their confirmation number as proof that they have successfully completed the confirmation process. Students must either (1) pay, (2) get a financial aid deferment, (3) confirm their registration and get a CONFIRMATION NUMBER by January 9 at 4:30 p.m., OR (4) THEY WILL LOOSE THEIR CLASSES.
Students who pay registration fees by cash, personal checks, or credit cards do not need to confirm. Your registration is validated or finalized. Your payment is your confirmation and you do not need a confirmation number. This also applies to students who make the minimum payment on the deferred payment plan.
How Do I Confirm? Students must either pay, confirm, get a deferment, or lose their classes. If your fees are paid in full by financial aid, Federal Direct loans, third party, or other credits, you must complete the registration process by confirming that you will attend MTSU for the Spring 2014. To confirm you will be attending MTSU this term and validate your registration, access RaiderNet by January 9, and do the following:
Please note that reviewing your class schedule does not confirm your registration; you MUST select the Confirm Your Registration option. When you select this option, you will be given a confirmation number if your registration is confirmed. When you are assigned a confirmation number, RaiderNet will enter a code into the computer to hold your classes. Write down the confirmation number and the date. This is your proof that you have successfully completed the confirmation process. If in doubt, try the process again and the system will tell you if your registration has been confirmed.
If your registration is not completed by either payment in full or by Confirmation before the final fee payment deadline for each term, your class schedule will be deleted.
If you pay fees in full by cash, check, or credit card, your registration is finalized. It is not necessary to also confirm on RaiderNet. Your payment is your confirmation.
(See When and Where do I pay my fees and confirm that I'll be attending? for the Final Fee Payment/Confirmation Deadlines)
If you are a sponsored student (fees to be billed to an employer, pre-paid tuition
program, military, government agency, or foreign embassy), your account should reflect
credits for the fees to be paid by your sponsor. If your account does not show these
credits, contact your sponsor to determine if authorization paperwork has been sent
to the Business Office, or bring a fee authorization form to the Business Office during
the early fee payment period. Payment, whether by check or by third party authorization,
is required by the due date or your class schedule will be deleted.
If you are receiving tuition assistance through the military such as GoArmyEd, you must submit approved tuition assistance paperwork to the Business Office, Cope 103, by February 13th. To apply for assistance, go to www.goarmyed.com. For additional help completing the tuition assistance paperwork, please contact the GoArmyEd help desk at 1-800-817-9990.
If your fees are PAID IN FULL BY THIRD PARTY (your balance is ZERO or a CREDIT on
your billing statement), you MUST confirm that you will attend before the fee payment deadline or your class schedule
will be deleted. (See How do I confirm? )
If your sponsor does not pay after several attempts of collecting payment, your account will be charged and you will be responsible for paying the amount that was not covered by your third party sponsor.
If you are a graduate assistant, your assistantship will pay a portion of the Program Services Fee. You will owe a balance for some student-related fees not covered by the assistantship. All undergraduate classes must be approved by the Graduate Office in order to be covered by the assistantship. You must pay your balance due or confirm you will attend by the fee payment deadline or your class schedule will be deleted. Late registration fee will be $100. If credit for your assistantship does not show on your bill, contact the Graduate Office at 898-2840.
Students who have a credit balance on their registration bill from excess Financial
Aid or other credits can receive a refund via Direct Deposit to their checking or savings account or deposit to SunTrust reloadable paycard only after they Confirm that they will be attending the Spring semester on RaiderNet.

SunTrust Reloadable Paycard
If you have a credit balance due to financial aid, and you choose not to direct deposit your refund to your bank, you may sign up for a SunTrust Reloadable Paycard by January 2. Once you have received your SunTrust Reloadable Paycard and your financial aid is credited to your account, your refund will be loaded onto your PayCard and available for use on January 16 - 20 (provided you have met all financial aid eligibility requirements, have completed the entrance interview requirements for first time borrowers and transfer students and have completed all required paperwork). You must confirm you will attend before your refund can be loaded onto your PayCard. The funds can be accessed or used by the student cardholder through any ATMs and anywhere Visa is accepted.

Students on deferred payment plans will still be responsible for any unpaid tuition, fees, and other charges after fee adjustments. Fee adjustments will cause a recalculation of installment payment amounts. Please see the Deferred Payment Plan terms for more information.

Students must withdraw from all classes on RaiderNet or drops must be processed on RaiderNeton or before the dates given above to be eligible for a fee adjustment. (See What if I need to withdraw from classes?)
NOTE: Fee adjustments for courses running for odd dates will be prorated per TBR policy.
