Yes! As long as you have been admitted to a graduate certificate or degree program, and are enrolled in at least 4 credit hours (units) at S&T, you're eligible to apply for financial aid. S&T's Student Financial Assistance Office can guide you through information for the federal Stafford loan. You will need to submit a FAFSA. For more information, please call 1-800-522-0938 or 573-341-4282, or email SFA@mst.edu.

Yes. Certificate students are just as eligible for financial aid as any other graduate student. Again, please keep in mind: graduate students need to be enrolled in at least 4 credit hours to be eligible for aid! 

Once you have enrolled, you will receive instructions, sent to your S&T email address, on how to access your eBill. You can pay online through Joe'SS (here's a step-by-step tutorial), or you can contact the Cashier's Office to arrange payment.

Please note: paying online through Joe'SS with an echeck will help you avoid a 2.75% service fee you would be charged if paying with credit card. To pay with echeck have your bank account number and routing number available.

Yes. Distance students employed by a company that reimburses students for at least 50% of their tuition are eligible for our Deferred Tuition Program. Distance students must submit a new application and $25 application fee each semester they would like to participate in the program. Please visit our Deferred Tuition page for additional information about this program.

There may be a hold on your account for a different reason. Here is a step-by-step tutorial showing you how to check what holds are on your account. If you verify that the only hold on your account is because of your previous balance you may need to email the cashier’s office- sometimes holds aren’t automatically removed when your balance is paid, and may need to be manually removed.

Each time a student adds a new course, the student will be charged for the full cost of the course. This cost will be the same before the last day to add classes as it would be if adding the course before the semester begins.

If dropping a class, the amount students will be reassessed changes depending on when they drop the class.

  • 100% refund through first week of classes
  • 50% refund weeks 2-4
  • 25% refund weeks 5-8
  • No refund applied weeks 9-16

These dates are outlined in the academic dates and deadlines each semester, and are posted on the registrar’s webpage at registrar.mst.edu/calendars. For more information about the reassessment policy, please contact the cashier’s office at cashier@mst.edu or 341-4195.

Distance dates and deadlines

No. Books and other course materials are not included in our tuition rates. Books and materials vary by course. Contact your professor to find out what books or other materials you may need to purchase.

The bills are normally generated on or around the 15th of each month. Bills are always due the 10th of the following month. The cashier’s website shows when the current billing statement was updated and when the next bill is due.

The minimum payment must be made by the due date or you will be subject to a $10.00 late fee. There will be a one percent monthly finance charge on the unpaid billed balance until the balance is paid in full. If it is the first payment due date of the semester, the payment must be made on time or your classes will be subject to cancellation.
