If you have a credit on your student account and are otherwise eligible to receive a refund, you may have your refund transferred directly into your bank account. The Office of Student Financial Services strongly recommends this method of receiving your refund. Electronic refunds are a safe, secure, and quick method of receiving your money. You may also use all or part of that credit to purchase Flexi dollars by sending an email to email@example.com.
To set up your profile for having your refund deposited directly to your bank account, please log in to the Student Account Center. This is a safe and secure system which you may access 24/7 to change / update / or delete your information. To request a refund, please send an email using your university email account to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to provide your complete name and student identification number.
Please note: If you previously had an electronic refund profile set up through our old system (Sallie Mae Direct Deposit) you will need to set up a new refund profile through the Student Account Center.
Refunds for tuition, fees, and/or housing are made only after a complete (dropping all courses) withdrawal or leave of absence from the University has been processed by the Registrar and, in the case of a resident student, also by the Housing Office. For resident students, the official withdrawal dates from the Registrar are the dates used to determine Housing refunds. Meal Plans are non-refundable. A student should complete the Withdrawal/Leave of Absence form in the Office of the Registrar and, if a resident student, notify the Housing Office.
The University strives to meet the expectations of its students and tries to act compassionately in times of crisis which may interrupt a student's semester studies in a manner that she/he could or should not finish the semester. In an attempt to ease the cost of tuition, the refund policy is in place to allow for a sliding refund for those who withdraw from all courses in a given semester according to the refund percentage period schedule. This policy applies to, but is not limited to, the following leave or withdrawal reasons: hospitalization, illness, moving out of the area, employment changes/relocation, and family related emergencies.
No refund/cancellation may be given for registered courses which a student did not attend and did not drop within the full 100% refund period. Refunds are not granted for undergraduates who drop a portion of their program after the 100% add/drop period. Fees are only refundable during the 100% refund period and only if a student is withdrawing from all courses. Consult the refund/cancellation schedule for the academic category corresponding to your enrollment status. Fees are non-refundable after the 100% withdrawal refund period.
**The University's refund policy complies with the Higher Education Amendments Act.
