Financial Aid Refunds

A refund is issued for excess funds that have been applied to the students account after deducting tuition and fees that have been billed at the point the credit appears. Refund checks are issued on Wednesdays of each week, after the two week Add/Drop period of each semester, and ALL paper checks will be mailed out to the studentís home address that our office has on file and made payable to the student. They are not available for pick-up at the office.
Students can receive their refund quicker by signing up for Direct Deposit of their refund check. This will ensure that the money is posted directly to their bank account in a timely fashion and they wonít have to wait for the check to arrive in the mail.
