COGS is a tax-collecting group at MSU, meaning that we assess a fee to all graduate and professional students enrolled in classes at MSU. This tax is approved by a vote open to all graduate and professional students every three years. The COGS tax was most recently authorized in April 2019. The next referendum for tax renewal will be April of 2022. More information about tax collecting groups at MSU can be found at

Our current tax is $11 for the Fall Semester, $11 for the Spring Semester, and $5 for the Summer Semester.

You may request a refund of the COGS tax by emailing the COGS office –  Requests must be made by the 10th day of the semester and are processed on the 18th class day of the semester.  Once a refund is processed, you would not be eligible for COGS services, funding and events.

LAST DAY to request tax refund for Summer 2021 is May 28th.
