  • Refunds

    In the event that a credit (balance due student) is generated on a student’s account, the credit balance will be issued as a refund to the student and mailed to the permanent address on file. If the student has created a refund profile in their student account the refund will be sent electronically to the account specified by the student. Mailed checks take approximately seven to ten business days and are sent via USPS mail.

  • Process

    Financial Aid begins to disburse during the second week of classes and refunds are generated at the start of the third week. Students do not need to request a refund from Financial Aid as these are automatically processed. If a payment has generated a credit balance, a student can request a refund by contacting the Solution Squad. Depending on the method of payment the student has selected, they should receive the refund in three to ten days.

    Any charges added to the account after the refund is processed are the responsibility of the student and should be paid upon billing unless otherwise specified (e.g. bookstore charges, student fees, added classes, etc.)

    Students who want credits to be maintained on their student account must request in writing that a refund not be issued. Credits not absorbed by subsequent charges will be refunded to students within 30 days of the end of the enrollment period (i.e. the academic year).
