Any "Credit Balance" on a student account will be used first to cover all education and non-educational-related expenses. If the remaining credit balance is the result of Federal Financial Aid a credit refund will be made to the student within 14 days. If the credit balance is not from Federal Funds it will remain on the student’s account until the student notifies the Office of Student Financial Services by submitting a completed Credit Refund Request Form. The student must have a credit on their account over and above tuition, fees and rent for the current term in order for any refund to be processed.
Constitution Day Federal Mandate
September 17 will be known as "Constitution Day" to honor the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. The legislation authorizing this Day states, "Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year should hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17, of such year for the students served by the educational institution." Should September 17 fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday, educational institutions should celebrate "Constitution Day" the preceding or following week.
Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) inserted language into the 2005 federal spending bill that requires all educational institutions, including colleges and universities, which receive federal funds from any agency to have programming for "Constitution Day."
The full text of this legislation can be found in Section III of Division J of Pub. L. 108-447, the "Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005," Dec. 8. 2004; 118 Stat, 2809, 3344-45 (Section 111).
