Student Account Refunds

Refunds from Overpayment/Excess Financial Aid.

The Student Accounts Office prepares refunds each week for those students who have received Financial Aid that results in a credit balance or who have overpaid. Refund checks will be processed beginning the second week of the semester. Refund requests received by Wednesday at 1:00pm will be processed and checks will be ready for pick up or mailing on Friday of each week by 1:00pm.
