What is e-Refund?
e-Refund is a way that you can receive your excess financial aid or other student account credits direct deposited into your checking or savings account.
How to setup e-Refund
First you will need to log into the Student Account Center. After logging in with your UMID and PIN (password), click on "My Profiles" at the top of the page then on "Payment Profile". From here, click on "Add a Payment Type" and then "New Electronic Check (checking/savings)" and click "Go". You should now be at the "Bank Account Information" page where you will enter your own checking or savings account information. Make sure to remember to click on the "Refund Option" box at the bottom of the page and "Save". Click here for a look at what the "Bank Account Information" page looks like.
Tuition Refund Policy
Fall & Winter Semesters:
Financial aid is disbursed approximately 10 days prior to the beginning of the Fall and Winter semesters. On that day the Cashiers/Student Accounts Office will be closed to process all refund checks 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 a paper check form by mail to your registered home address. Once you have set up your e-Refund profile, all refunds given to you will be done electronically as a direct deposit into your checking or savings account you have on file in the Student Account Center until you deactivate your saved refund profile. All refund checks in paper form will be mailed the same day. All e-Refund checks will also be processed as well, 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 is closed to process refunds. Also, in order for your refund to be direct deposited you must set up your e-Refund profile at least two business days prior to the disbursement of financial aid.
Spring & 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 our 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.
Students must fill out the paperwork for a book advance in the Financial Aid Office.
