TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida State University says they're planning to start issuing refunds to students who paid for housing and dining services in less than two weeks.
Thursday, Kyle Clark, the vice president for Finance and Administration, sent a message to students saying that they are implementing a "Student Refund Plan' for any student that has paid or been assessed with housing and dining charges.
The refunds will be issued with the following considerations:
The university says they plan on electronically issuing refunds the week of April 6.
"This will allow us time to calculate refund amounts and ensure all refunds are compliant with financial aid rules based on U.S. Department of Education and State of Florida guidance. During this time, we encourage students to verify their direct deposit profile in MyFSU.
The news comes after Gov. Ron DeSantis directed all of Florida's colleges to finish the rest of the Spring semester online due to coronavirus concerns. Physical graduation ceremonies have also been canceled across the state.
