When financial aid and scholarships exceed allowable charges on the student's account, the credit balance will be refunded. The preferred method for students to receive refunds is via Direct Deposit into the student's bank account. Financial aid refund checks will NOT be available for pick up; if Direct Deposit is not established, your refund check will be mailed to your mailing address in our system. Below is a refund schedule for the beginning of each term of the 2020-2021 academic year. In the summer term one class must begin during the period listed below for the Financial Aid to disburse.
