Refund Process for Financial Aid Credits

Fall and Winter Semesters:

Financial aid is disbursed approximately 10 days prior to the beginning of the Fall and Winter semesters.  On that day Cashiers/Student Accounts Office will process all refunds for students with eligible credits remaining on their student account.  You, as the student, have the option to receive this refund through e-Refund, following the procedures listed above, or in paper check form by mail to your registered home address.  All refund checks in paper form will be mailed the same day.  All e-Refunds will also be processed, however we ask that you allow a minimum of two business days for the electronic funds to come through (time can vary depending on your bank).

Important:  If you have chosen to receive a paper check you may not pick up your check on the day the office processes refunds.  Also, in order for your refund to be direct deposited you must set up your e-Refund account at least two business days prior to the disbursement of financial aid.

Spring and Summer Semesters:

All students signed up for e-Refund will receive an automatic deposit into their checking or savings account they have set up through the Student Account Center.  The frequency that the e-Refund process is ran may vary each semester, so please check with the Cashiers/Student Accounts office if you have any questions on when your e-Refund is expected to be processed.  If you have chosen to receive your refund as a paper check, it will be mailed on the first day of classes.
