Financial Aid Refund
A refund to a student occurs when the University owes the student money. A refund could be generated due to financial aid (scholarships, grants, loans, etc.) being applied to the student’s account that covers more than what is being charged for an academic term.
In compliance with federal regulations, automatic refunds are processed for all federal financial aid recipients whose total federal funds exceed allowable term expenses. Allowable expenses include tuition, fees, university housing, dining plans and health insurance. Even if you received a refund, please continue to check your eBill each month for changes to your account or adjustments to financial aid that may result in an account balance.
You do not need to submit a request for a refund to be processed; all refunds are automatically processed once financial aid disburses for a term. If you have signed up for eRefund, your refund amount will be directly deposited to the bank of your choice with 48 hours of the refund being processed. Otherwise, a paper check will be mailed to your billing address on file when your refund is processed.
Please note that for parents receiving a refund from a Parent PLUS Loan, your refund will be mailed to you at the address you listed on your PLUS Loan application as a paper check.
