Refunds

Tuition Refunds

Students who change credit status by dropping a course or withdrawing from the University should review the Registrar's Office refund and withdrawal schedules.

Room and Board Refunds

Refunds of room and board charges will be prorated on the basis of the number of weeks used.

Credit-Balance Refunds—Financial Aid or Overpayment

Refunds may be direct deposited into your checking or savings account, or checks will be mailed. Checks are not available for pickup.

Avoid lost or stolen checks and delayed funds by signing up for direct deposit.

Refund Schedule

Credit-balance refunds will be issued during the third week of each semester. Credit-balance refunds as a result of Federal Direct Loan proceeds will be initiated when the credit appears on the student’s account.

Refund checks are processed once a week. Direct deposits are processed daily and available in the recipient account two business days after appearing on the student account.

Refund checks will be mailed on Thursday for refunds initiated during the prior Thursday to Wednesday.

Refund checks processed during the third week of classes will be mailed on Wednesday.

Verifying Your Mailing Address

Students are responsible for verifying their correct mailing address. This can be done on Banweb: choose "Personal Information" and then "View Address(es) and Phone(s).” Corrections can be made by selecting "Update Address(es) and Phone(s).”

Refunding Procedure with Credit Card Payment

During the first three weeks of a semester, if a credit balance exists on a student account and a credit card payment was made to the account for the same semester, the credit card account is refunded. 

Beyond the third week, if a credit balance exists as a result of additional financial aid, the student is refunded via check or direct deposit. If the credit balance is the result of returned services (e.g., tuition, fees, or housing) and a credit card payment was made, the credit card account will be refunded.
