Policies Governing Finances

Release of Student Transcript

There is a charge of ten dollars ($10.00) for each official transcript. There are additional fees for transcripts mailed to addresses outside the United States and for overnight or express mailing. The student’s account must be paid in full and all holds cleared before any transcript of credit can be issued. There will be a ten (10) day waiting period before the transcript is released if students choose to clear their account and/or pay for their transcript using a check. All requests for official transcripts must be made in writing to the Director of Records. Information on requesting a transcript may be found at https://www.mobap.edu/academics-overview/academics-records-registrar/transcript-requests/.Transcript request forms are available in the Records Office, Regional Learning Center offices, or online. Unofficial transcripts are available through the student portal, myMBU Access.

Delinquent Accounts

Students whose accounts are delinquent will not be permitted to register and/or return for a succeeding semester or term. In addition, transcripts will not be issued, and the student will not be permitted to participate in commencement exercises, if scheduled to graduate. Delinquent accounts are charged interest, collection fees, and court costs, when submitted to the collection agency, and will be reported to a national credit bureau.

Students have six months following their last recorded date of attendance to dispute their bill based on their attendance.

Enrollment Status Change

After the first day of the semester, any schedule adjustment will result in a $30.00 schedule adjustment fee. If a student adds or drops individual courses changing status from part-time to full-time, or full-time to part-time, semester expenses will be recalculated to reflect the changed status. Refund calculations will be made according to the refund schedule which follows.

Refund Schedules

It is understood that each student enters for at least one term, and the University assumes the expense of making provisions accordingly. Therefore, a student’s withdrawal does not materially reduce the costs to the University. Tuition refunds are pro-rated from the date withdrawal is approved by the Records Offices as follows in the case of a course load status change, such as overload to full-time, full-time to part-time, a reduction of course load within the part-time status, or complete withdrawal/dismissal from the University. Refunds for classes of non-standard term length are published in the respective class schedule.
