Financial aid will be disbursed on or prior to the first day of classes if it is available. Financial aid will be used to pay any remaining balance on students' accounts before refunds will be issued, if authorized. Refunds will be delayed if a past due balance exists on the student account. Any excess aid will be processed after the term begins.
Refunds are processed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All refunds are done electronically.
For a quicker initial refund, sign up for e-Refunding to get your money electronically deposited into the bank account of your choice. To sign up for e-Refunding, follow the e-Refunding instructions [PDF]. Once you have set up your refund/payment profile, your refund check will be deposited in approximately 2-3 business days after it has posted to your student account on WINS. The funds will be available to you as soon as they are deposited. All future refunds will be direct deposited into the account you set up.
If you do not have a bank account, you can expect your refund to be delayed. Any refunds that cannot be processed electronically will be processed as a paper check and mailed to your local address; when school is in session and to your home address; when school is not in session.
NOTE: If you are an International student you must have a US account set up at the bank of your choice to process direct deposit OR an address that a check can be mailed to in the US. We cannot mail checks to foreign addresses.
