Bursar's Office


The Bursar’s Office serves both the Keshena and Green Bay/Oneida campuses by collecting payments for student tuition and fees, distributing refunds, and assisting with third party billing agreements. For more information, visit your MyEmpower Student Account Page.


Refund Checks

When refund checks are available, a student is sent an email from the Bursar. The email is sent on Fridays as soon as the checks are ready. The email will state the student has a refund check waiting for pick up in the Bursar’s Office. A student must have a current student I.D. in order to sign for the refund check.


If not picked up by Tuesday at 2 p.m., the Bursar will mail the check to the current address in EMPOWER. Please make sure Student Services has your current address.


Authorization for Direct Deposit Student Financial Aid Refunds


Bursar Holds

Bursar holds are placed on a student’s record by the Bursar’s Office if money is owed to the College. The hold prevents students from registering for classes. The holds are placed in March for Fall semesters and in October for Spring semesters.


Holds will not be lifted until the bill is paid in full or arrangements have been made with the Bursar, including a payment plan, wage assignment, or by financial aid.


Payment Options

Students can pay their bill in three ways:

Payment Plan:

A student must pay half down and the other half by payment plan by the end of the semester.


Wage Assignment:

A student can set up a wage assignment with the student’s payroll department. A minimum payment of $25 to CMN is required. Payments may be made weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. This payment is required until the bill is paid in full.


Financial Aid Agreement:

Students can meet with Financial Aid staff to determine whether they will be receiving enough Financial Aid to cover the current semester bill and a past bill, if applicable. The student must sign the financial aid agreement with the Bursar once it is determined the student has enough financial aid to meet requirements.

Making a Payment

There are four ways to make a payment on the balance owed.

Pay in person:

A student can pay in person at CMN with the Bursar by cash, check, or debit or credit card.


Pay through your employer by using a Wage Assignment:

A student can set up a Wage Assignment with the student’s employer, which is usually handled by the payroll department. Using payroll deduction, the employer will send a check to CMN to make payments toward the bill.


Pay through your bank via Bill Payer:

A student can set up payments through the student’s bank if the bank offers Bill Payer online.


Pay through MyEmpower:

A student can make payments through the Billing Detail Summary in MyEmpower using a debit or credit card, or PayPal.


Refunds for Withdrawal

Tuition refunds for students who totally withdraw from all classes are based on the following schedule. This schedule does not apply to students who are subject to the requirements of federal regulations. Financial aid recipients should refer to the refund and repayment policy.


Withdrawal Period Refund
1st – 5th business day of term 100 percent
6th – 10th business day of term     50 percent
After the 10th day of term none


Partial Withdrawal:

Refunds are not given to students for Partial Withdrawals or to those who exchange classes after the drop date for a course which has fewer semester hours of credit. If a student’s schedule is reduced for the convenience of CMN, as in the cancellation of classes for insufficient enrollment, the tuition shall be adjusted without penalty.


Please meet with financial aid staff before you drop or withdraw.
