Apr 24: Update on Housing and Meal Plan Refunds and Credits
This email includes information regarding how refunds and credits were calculated, as well as the process through which they will be issued.
Dear Stonehill Students and Families,
We want to thank you for your patience as we have undertaken the process of preparing refunds and credits for this semester’s housing and meal plans. Below please find information regarding how these refunds/credits were calculated, as well as the process through which they will be issued.
Refunds and credits have been calculated on a prorated basis, with a credit of 42% of the semester’s room charge, totaling $2,160. This equates to the time period between March 16th and May 8th.
Regarding meal plans, all unused dollars remaining on students’ spring balances will be refunded in their entirety.
Please know that students who were approved to remain on campus during all or part of this time period will have their refunds adjusted accordingly. In addition, students who received scholarships and/or institutional funding to cover their housing and meal plan costs are not eligible to receive a credit or refund.
As for the process and timeline, seniors who have applied for graduation will receive a cash refund, net any outstanding account balance. Continuing students will receive a credit on their accounts, which can be applied towards future expenses at the College.
We anticipate issuing refunds to seniors by check, mailed to their permanent home addresses, by April 30th and posting credits for continuing students by May 15th. Please know that refunds for tuition and fees will not be issued, as all coursework continues online for the remainder of the academic year.
Once again, thank you for your patience with this process and know we are saddened that your residential experience was cut short this semester. We wish our seniors all the best in their future endeavors, and we look forward to welcoming back our returning students in the fall.
