Financial Aid Refunds

A refund is issued for excess funds that have been applied to astudent's account after deducting tuition and fees that have been billed at the point the credit appears.  Refund checks are issued on Wednesday of each week, after the two-week Add/Drop period of each semester, and all paper checks will be mailed out to the student’s home address on file and made payable to the student.  Funds are not available for pick-up at the office.

Students can receive their refund more quickly by signing up for Direct Deposit of their refund check.  This will ensure that the money is posted directly to the student's bank account in a timely fashion.
