If you would like the university to return loan funds that have been disbursed to us, or for which you have received a refund check, please complete a Request to Return Loan Funds form from the link below. Please send it to:
New York University
Office of the Bursar

New York, NY 10003-9580
ATTN: Refund Department
If you are returning a refund check that you would like us to send back to your lender, please remember to include the completed form. This form is required by your lender so that they can properly apply the funds to your outstanding loan.
If you have not received a refund check, you may either mail the form or fax it to (212) 998-2817.
NOTE:New York University can only return Federal Direct Loan funds if the disbursement date (the date the funds post on your account) has not exceeded 120 days.
If you wish to cancel all or part of any disbursement of your loan more than 120 days after it was disbursed, you are actually repaying part of your loan and you must pay any accrued interest and/or fees. You may make a payment directly to your federal loan servicer.
Borrowers are assigned to one of the five servicers by the U.S. Department of Education, which include ACS, Great Lakes, NelNet, PHEAA, and Sallie Mae. If you are not sure which of the five centers is your assigned servicer, visit and log into the federal government’s National Student Loan Data System to determine your servicer. You may also call 1-800-4-FED-AID to locate your servicer.
