Each time you Add/Drop classes you are electronically agreeing to the terms of the Ball State University Financial Responsibility and Promissory Note Agreement.  By doing so you acknowledge that you understand Ball State University is advancing value to you in the form of educational services; that your right to Add/Drop classes is expressly conditioned upon your agreement to pay the University pursuant to the Agreement; and that you have read, understand, and agree to pay the University pursuant to the Agreement.

As a student, you will pay all tuition, fees, fines, and other costs imposed by the University. If any of those charges remain unpaid, you may be charged the University's cost of collection, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees, collection fees, and court costs.
When you register for classes, spaces in classes are reserved for you. Decisions about how many class sections to offer and other commitments of instructional resources are made based on the enrollment data provided after the registration process is complete. Other students may be closed out of a preferred section if the last available space is reserved for you.

In exchange for the University's commitment of resources on your behalf, you assume a responsibility to: 

  • pay the fees assessed for those classes
  • notify the University prior to the start of the term if you are unable to attend so that the class spaces may be released and made available to other students.

The University will not automatically cancel your registration for nonpayment. Therefore, if you decide not to attend Ball State University, it is imperative that you follow the cancellation procedures.

If you do not request that your registration be cancelled, your name will appear on the class rosters, and you will remain responsible for full fees until such time as you complete a total withdrawal through the Office of the Assistant to the Dean of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services (refer to withdrawal procedures for refunds of registration fees). If you are still on the final rosters for the term, you may receive grades of "F" for the courses in which you were registered.

Please keep your part of the registration contract. If your plans change, notify the Office of Registration and Academic Progress prior to the start of the term in order to allow other students access to your class spaces.
