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.
Regulations require that students are refunded credit balances as a result of financial aid within 14 days of disbursement. Mass disbursement of financial aid to the student accounts is done on Wednesday of the first week of the semester. Refunds of tuition accounts with a credit balance as a result of Federal Direct Loan proceeds are initiated the following day. Refunds as a result of overpayment or non-loan financial aid are initiated on Tuesday of the third week of the semester. Financial aid disbursed after Tuesday of the third week will be refunded as the credits appear on the student accounts.
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.
