Students may be eligible for a refund of financial aid, loan credits, or payments that exceed the charges on their student account.
The majority of student refunds are generated by Federal, Private, and Institutional Student Loans. However, refunds may also result from other account transactions such as adjustments to financial aid, tuition, fees, and room and board.
Refunds generated by personal payments may be held up to 14 days to assure that the funds have cleared.
Students will receive their refund either by direct deposit or paper check. We highly encourage students to sign up for direct deposit in order to receive refunds in a much faster pace!
The University offers a secure direct deposit service through which students can have their refunds deposited directly to the checking or savings account of their choice. This service enables quicker access to funds rather than waiting for a check to arrive through the mail.
Note: Only U.S. bank accounts can be used for this service.
Students who have not signed up for direct deposit will have their refund checks mailed to their current address on file. It is important students keep a current active address on file. If a valid address is not in the student system, the refund check can become lost or returned by the mail carrier and a refund could not be processed.
