Note: You must be eligible for a refund. Refunds for credit card payments will continue to be processed back to the original credit card used.

Update your address

To ensure timely processing of your refunds and/or book advance, it’s very important that the address we have on file for you is correct. This is necessary regardless of the refund method selected. To update your address:

  1. Navigate to, and select the Student Center icon.
  2. Scroll down to the Personal Information section and verify that ALL addresses (Home, Mail, Bill) in your student information file are correct.
  3. If any information is incorrect, please update the information immediately.

You are responsible for keeping your information up-to-date to ensure that your refund is processed in a timely manner. We are here to help you with this process.

For more information, check out the MSRP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) found here, or stop by Student Business Services on campus, or call (480) 731-8800.

Paper checks are available for students. Checks may take up to 7-14 days to be received, and will be mailed to the address in your Online Student Center.

Please note: The $15 registration fee per semester is non-refundable and will not be refunded. In addition, payment plan participants who paid the $20 non-refundable enrollment fee will not be refunded the enrollment fee. You must officially drop or withdraw from classes during the appropriate refund period in order to be eligible for a refund of your tuition charges.
