Refunds

Refunds due to overpayment will be issued only after all charges are paid in full. The refund process can begin as early as the first week of the semester. There are two methods of distribution:

  • Direct Deposit to US Based Bank Account (Preferred Method)
  • Mail a check to the student’s current address in the SIS system

Only actual credits (not anticipated aid) in excess of the total charges may result in a refund or used to prepay future charges if requested. By default, refunds will be issued by check within 10 business days of the posted credits exceeding charges. Student Financial Services prefers that students enroll in direct deposit for tuition account refunds thru SIS. Direct deposit allows your refund payments to be conveniently delivered into your bank account.
