Tuition Refund Appeal

The University of Southern Mississippi tuition refund schedule is found on the Office of Business Services website and the Gulf Coast Office of Business Services website. If the student has not followed the posted schedule due to extenuating circumstances, he or she may make an appeal for a tuition refund. All tuition refund appeals are made in writing to the Office of Business Services on the Hattiesburg campus (Undergraduate Bulletin and Graduate Bulletin). Tuition refund appeals sent to the Gulf Coast Office of Business Services are redirected to the Hattiesburg office. The Tuition Appeals Committee meets monthly to review these appeals. The committee recommends to the Bursar that the student’s appeal be denied or approved and that appropriate refunds, if any, be credited to the student’s account. The decision of this committee regarding the appeal is final.
