About the Program
Central Michigan University recognizes the value of professional educators who work closely with our pre-student teaching students and student teachers. Cooperating teachers and pre-student teaching host teachers give many hours of their valuable time to the preparation of our pre-service students. The University has developed a program of tuition refunds for classroom teachers, host teachers, and principals who meet the guidelines listed below to aid them as they continue to enhance their own professional expertise.
Tuition refund guidelines:
- The cooperating teacher, pre-student teaching host teacher, or principal must complete a Tuition Refund Form and a W-9 Form (non-US citizens submit a W-8BEN Form). Both forms are to be submitted within 30 days of the close of the semester during which the course was taken. You will need to use your CMU ID number when completing the Tuition Refund Form and your social security number when completing the W-9 Form.
- The completed forms are to be submitted to Tuition Refunds, 421 EHS Building, Mt. Pleasant, MI 48859. Your request will be verified for eligibility and amount to be reimbursed.
- Eligible refund requests will then be submitted to the Accounting Office. Please note that this process will take a minimum of 6 weeks from the date grades are posted.

CHANGES IN FEDERAL LAW:
As of January 2013 federal law requires all tuition refund recipients to complete a W-9 Form
(non-US citizens submit a W-8BEN Form
). Recipients who have received $600 or more in tuition refunds will be sent a 1099-MISC Form at the end of the calendar year for income tax purposes. CHANGES IN CMU REFUND PROCEDURE:
CMU is no longer mailing paper checks for tuition refunds. Instead, the money will be put on the recipient's CMU account with access to remaining balance via a money card or through direct deposit. For questions on this process, please contact Student Account Services and Billing at (989)774-3618.
If you have any questions regarding tuition refunds please contact Lori Moon, TEPD Executive Secretary, at 989-774-4410 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
