When to Expect a Refund

A refund could appear on your account for many reasons:

  • Dropping/withdrawing from a class. You may receive a cancellation of tuition charges after dropping a class or withdrawing from a semester. The amount of your cancellation of charges depends on how far into a semester you’ve dropped a class. View deadlines for dropping or withdrawing from classes.
  • Financial aid. You may also receive a refund after your student aid or loans have been applied to your account because of a credit balance.
  • Overpaying or cancelling a charge could result in a refund, for example, if you changed your meal plan or waived your student health plan.

When a refund is due to your account, we will issue the payment to you by direct deposit (the fastest method) or check.
