Wright State University (WSU) students will receive refunds and credits for campus housing, meal plans and parking passes, according to a communications email sent to students Thursday morning. 

“Thank you for your patience as we developed a fair plan for issuing refunds and credits to students for housing, meal plans, and parking for the spring 2020 semester,” according to the email. “Refunds will be issued for expenses students paid out of pocket and will not include scholarships or grants.

Students who lived in residence halls on either campus and properly checked out will receive proportional refunds for the period of March 23 through April 30. 

Meal plans

Students with residential meal plans will receive refunds for meal swipes March 23 through April 30.

Dining dollars for residential students will be valid until spring 2021.

Students with commuter meal plans and dining dollars will not receive a refund, but the account amount will roll over and stay valid until spring 2021. 

Raidercash will also roll over until the 2020-2021 academic year. 

Students who graduate, transfer or do not return to WSU are eligible for a prorated refund and should contact [email protected]

Parking

Students will receive a prorated refund for their parking pass that can be used to purchase a parking pass for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The amount of the credit will depend upon what type of pass each student purchased and will be prorated from March 16 to April 30.

“Refunds for students who owe a balance for housing, meal plans, parking, or other charges will be reduced by the amount owed,” according to the email. 

Students are not eligible to receive a refund if their tuition and fees were paid exclusively by a federal or state grant, a scholarship or grant from WSU or the Wright State University Foundation, or a scholarship from an external organization or third-party.

Administration plans to have all refunds and credits issued by the end of April
