When will I receive a Financial Aid refund?

Refund checks are processed once the student’s account comes to a credit balance, after classes for the term begin. The check is mailed to the student’s mailing address. This address can be updated at the Registration Office window. Please allow 7-10 business days to receive your refund check in the mail. Please contact the Student Accounts Office for any further questions or visit Self Service to see if your account has come to a credit balance.
