State colleges to offer room and board refunds to students

  • Updated

LINCOLN – The Nebraska State Colleges are offering refunds to students who choose to move out of the residence halls because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chadron, Peru, and Wayne State students who move out for the remainder of the Spring semester and complete necessary paperwork will receive a 60% prorated refund of room and board costs based on their residence hall arrangements and dining plan, effective March 15. Refunds will be processed according to the checkout date and applied to student accounts. If the refund results in a credit balance, the amount of that credit balance will be sent to the student at their permanent address on file.

Students who do not notify the college about their intent to check out by March 23 will be asked to communicate their plans to residence life. Students who check out and choose not to immediately remove their belongings from residence halls will be able to schedule a time to do so at a later date.

For those students who wish to remain on our campuses, our residence halls, dining services, and other student services will remain open. We recognize that going home may be difficult, particularly for our international students. If that is the case, students are welcome to stay at Chadron, Peru, or Wayne State College.

Academic courses will continue in a remote format beginning March 23 and for the remainder of the semester, so no refunds will be offered for tuition or student fees.

The Nebraska State Colleges will continue to monitor and assess the COVID-19 situation, in order to make the best decisions for our students. To keep up-to-date on NSCS notifications regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, visit:
