Registering for classes is interrelated to financial aid and tuition billing

The number of credits you register for will affect how much tuition you are billed.  This number must correspond to the number that we based your financial aid on.  We based your financial aid on what you told us when you completed the Middlebury Institute of International Studies institutional financial aid application.  First semester students are almost always full time, which means 12–16 credits.  We are not able to release your financial aid funds until you are registered for the number of credits for which you were packaged. Being waitlisted on a class could impact the release of your financial aid funds.

Paying tuition

If you have a Middlebury Institute scholarship or need-based grant, your student account will be credited after you register for classes.

Your student loans will be credited to your student account after you have completed the necessary loan disbursement requirements, and the number of credits that you are registered for matches the number of credits you were packaged for.  If the total amount of aid you are to receive (not including federal work study employment) exceeds your charges for tuition and fees the credit balance will be refunded to you for living expenses.

To avoid delays to your refund, we encourage you to enroll in direct deposit through your Nelnet Campus Commerce account.  Once logged in to Nelnet, you can access Student Choice Refund to enroll in direct deposit.  If you do not enroll in direct deposit, a paper check will be processed and sent to the mailing address on file with the Institute.  You can add or confirm your mailing address in BannerWeb.
