Explanation of Fees

Tuition: This charge is based on the number of credits a student is enrolled in, the modality by which the student is taking courses (online vs in-person) as well as where the student is from.

Semester Transcript fee: Charged each semester to non-degree students who enroll in courses. This fee provides you access to your course transcript.

Student Activity fee: Supports all student groups, student publications and various other student-related activities.

Library fee: This fee supports online resources such as, being part of the consortium of libraries around the country that supports students who do not come to campus for our online library services, allowing students to check out books, media, and other services elsewhere. This fee also supports the procurement of media, software, and services that professors use in class to teach. Additionally, this fee supports the ability of online students to get a UMass Pass without coming to campus.

College of Major fee: This fee covers the costs directly associated with the delivery of instruction corresponding to a student's program of study.

Technology fee: This fee supports the technology infrastructure and educational environment necessary to meet the technological demands of the UMass Dartmouth community.

MASSPIRG fee: MASSPIRG is a statewide, student-directed, student-funded organization that advocates on behalf of students on issues such as affordable higher education, public health, and the environment. UMass Dartmouth students have voted to fund a MASSPIRG chapter on campus through this waivable fee. Please note that this waivable fee does not reflect the University of Massachusetts Trustees endorsement.

Why do I have an RBD (Registered Balance Due) hold on my account?

The Registered Balance Due (RDB) hold is placed on your account if you have a prior or a current semester balance. The RDB hold may be placed on your account even when the financial aid is showing anticipated but not been dispersed.

When will I get my refund?

The Financial Aid Office will review student accounts after the add-drop period. Refunds are processed once financial aid is disbursed and a credit balance is reflected on your account. You will receive an email notification to your UMass Dartmouth email address once the refund has been processed.

If a direct deposit is set up in the student COIN account, then the refund will be distributed directly to the student’s corresponding bank account. If not, then a check will be mailed to the student’s permanent address listed in Coin and it can take up to three (3) weeks to receive by mail.

Why am I not eligible for a Book Voucher

To receive a book voucher you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must show a credit on your student coin account
  • You must meet the following credit criteria.
    • Undergraduate: 12 credits or more
    • Graduate: 9 credits or more
    • Law school: 12 credits or more

Financial aid

I applied for a private loan or Parent PLUS loan but do not see it on my COIN account. When will the loan appear?

During the loan certification process.

I submitted my verification documents and I still have not been awarded. How long will it be before I receive an award?

The verification process can take between 1-3 weeks unless additional information is needed. Please monitor your To Do list on COIN for any additional requests. Once completed you will receive an award notification to your UMass Dartmouth email.

What is Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note (MPN) that I see on my To Do list?

Both items must be completed before your federal student loans can be applied to your account. The Entrance Counseling explains how the federal loan process works, including interest rates, repayment options and your rights and responsibilities. The MPN are a legal document that explains the terms and conditions of your federal loans. It is your promise to repay your student loans, including accrued interest and fees.

If I switch my day courses to Online and Continuing Education courses, will it be cheaper? Will my financial aid cover the online classes?

While it may be more affordable to attend an online course, if you switch from a day student to an online program, your award is subject to change. As an online student you are only eligible for federal and state aid, which means you would lose any institutional or merit aid (i.e., University Grant, Chancellor’s Merit etc.) you were previously awarded.

When will my Financial Aid be available?

Financial aid awards for incoming first-year students will be generated approximately four (4) weeks after receiving a completed FAFSA, provided no additional information is requested. For returning students, financial aid awards will be awarded in mid-June.

How do I get reevaluated for additional financial aid?

To request an evaluation of your financial aid, you can submit a case with a completed Reevaluation Request form.

  • Once completed it will be reviewed by your Financial Aid counselor. You should monitor your university email and To Do list for any notifications or requests for additional information.
  • Please note, completing this form does not mean you qualify for more financial aid. This form is a request that needs to be evaluated.

What is the status of my reevaluation?

Reevaluation requests take approximately 2 weeks to review. You should monitor your university email and To Do list for any notifications or request for additional information.

Where do I send a scholarship letter?

All scholarship award letters need to be submitted to the Student Service Center for processing. Scholarships from a private third-party (i.e., Dunkin) will show as “anticipated aid” until funds are received.

John and Abigail Adam’s Scholarship Award Letters also need to be submitted to the Student Service Center. Once received it will be applied to your account for a total of 8 semesters provided you continue to meet the requirements. You must be a full-time, day school student, while meeting the GPA requirement.

When will my Financial Aid transfer to housing?

Students living in Balsam and Spruce will receive two bills. One for tuition and fees and the other for housing. Your financial aid is first applied towards tuition and fees. Any remaining financial aid will be applied to your housing bill once the aid has disbursed after the add/drop period.

Please note, we need your authorization to transfer your financial aid to your housing bill. This is something you would have done when you completed your housing contract with Greystar. If you see a ‘Greystar Financial Aid’ hold on your account, this means authorization was granted. If not, any credit balance will be refunded to you or your parents either by direct deposit or paper check. It will be your responsibility to make sure your housing bill gets paid.

Information on refunds and direct deposit can be found at the Bursar's Office.

I submitted my SAP documents. When will I know if it is approved?

Provided all the appropriate documents have been received, the SAP review process can take between 1-3 weeks. Please monitor your UMass Dartmouth email for an approval or denial decision. If your SAP appeal is denied, you no longer qualify for financial aid including Parent Plus loans. If denied, go to ELMSelect for private loan options that do not require SAP.

When can I register for classes?

Your enrollment date is based on your total earned credits (not including those currently in progress). You may view your enrollment date in your COIN Student Center.

I am trying to enroll into online courses, but COIN is showing me an error, what do I do?

What is FERPA?

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) guarantees the privacy of a student’s educational records. When a student enters a post-secondary institution, the access rights to educational records previously held by parents/guardians are now transferred to the student. Submitting a FERPA authorization is the student giving UMass Dartmouth permission to speak to a third party (such as parent/guardian, etc.) about the student’s account.
