How to Request a Refund on your ASMSU Tax
ASMSU (Associated Students of MSU) is the all-university undergraduate student government. ASMSU provides many services to students such as free legal services, funding for student programs and events, MSU yearbook and copy and faxing services. All activities and programs are funded through a student voted tax collected each semester.
If you are interested in a refund on your ASMSU Tax, follow the following directions.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Tax Refund Form.
- You will be required to provide proof of payment and registration.
- For fall and spring semesters, you must take action before the end of the first two weeks (or first 10 class days) of the semester.
- For summer, you must take action before the end of the first two weeks (or first 10 class days) of the first session.
- The address used on the form is the address where the refund will be mailed to.
NOTE: Once the ASMSU tax refund is claimed, you will no longer be eligible for ASMSU services (Safe Ride, Loan Program, iClickers & Calculator rentals, Free Printing, Blue Book Program, Interest Free Loan Program, Readership Program, ect.).
