Receiving a Refund

If there are Financial Aid funds remaining in your student account after all university charges are paid, you may either get your money or “refund” through Direct Deposit (within 2-3 business days of disbursement) or by paper check (available on Fridays).

All students are highly encouraged to enroll in direct deposit via their Student Center (under Finances section), which provides faster deposit of funds and reduces risk of check fraud.  If you do not have direct deposit (EFT) set up with Student Financial Services, your refund check must be picked up at the Cashiers window, SBS 257Checks are not mailed.

Your Financial Aid refund can be used towards any education-related item listed in the cost of attendance such as such as books, transportation, housing, food, and miscellaneous expenses. This also means you are solely responsible for budgeting this refund throughout the semester.
