A refundable credit balance may result on your student account because of financial aid disbursements, over-payments and/or account adjustments. All refunds are issued to the student, with the exception of refunds resulting from excess Parent PLUS Loans.
Refunds resulting from financial aid and loan payments are issued after the initial disbursement of financial aid, which generally occurs 10 days prior to the start of the semester. Refunds are processed continually during the semester as aid is credited to the student account.
The fastest way to receive your refund is to enroll in the direct deposit of student refunds (Parent Plus Loan refunds must be issued by check). Students who do not enroll in the direct deposit of student refunds will have their refund issued by check.
