Refunds - Other Overages

If you see a negative balance (overage) on your account, this means you have a credit balance and a refund will be issued to you.  You will know that your refund has been scheduled for disbursing when this negative turns into a zero balance.  Click here to check your statement of accounts.

Check your ULink account regularly, especially after making any changes to enrollment during the drop/add period.  These changes could affect your Financial Aid disbursement refund.

Your refund will be available for release approximately three to five business days after the account zeroes out.

Important Tips for Receiving Your Refund:

  •  Keep your address current on ULink.
  •  Put your name on your mailbox!  The post office will not deliver first class mail to mailboxes without names listed on them in apartment buildings, apartment houses, etc. 
  • All refunds will be credited back to the method used to pay.

Cash or check refunds will be issued in the form of either a Direct Deposit  into your personal banking account (checking or savings) or a check will be mailed to your current local address. Please verify your mailing address through ULink.  Disbursements will not hand deliver nor allow students to pick up any refund checks.  If the refund is not received at the students place of residence, after 30 days, a Stop Pay can be processed through the Student Disbursement's office.  You must complete the online form and bring it to the Student Union Room 135  for further Processing.

Overages due from a debt that was paid online with a card will be refunded back to the card.  No exceptions.  If a card refund is more than 120 days past the payment date, a phone call will be placed to the student.  If the student is not the owner of the card, the student will be required to give contact information of the card owner.  The card information must be resubmitted in order to refund the card manually. 

Refunds from Resignation

When a student officially resigns from the university, credit adjustments will be based on the official date of resignation. A resignation credit adjustment, if applicable, is based on current hours enrolled. Whether or not a student attends class does not factor into the credit adjustment calculation. There is no adjustment to tuition and fees charged when a student reduces his/her course load by dropping one or more classes once registration closes.

Regular Fall/Spring Semester:
- Prior to the first class day = 100% credit adjustment
- 1st class day through 5th class day (Drop & Add Period) = 100% credit adjustment
- 6th class day through the 14th class day (census day) = 50% credit adjustment
Regular Summer Semester and Fall & Spring A and B Terms:
- Prior to the first class day = 100% credit adjustment
- 1st class day through the 3rd class day (Drop & Add Period) = 100% credit adjustment
- 4th class day through 7th class day (census day) = 50% credit adjustment

If a student has to resign for the semester due to extenuating circumstances, they are encourage to review the Tuition and Fee Appeal Policy to see if they are eligible to appeal the remaining Tuition and Fees for the term.

NOTE: The student insurance fee, late resignation fee, freshman orientation fee, re-instatement fee, international service fee, technology fees, and certain course/section fees are not refundable.

*** Please consult with the Office of Student Financial Aid as changes to your schedule may impact your financial aid status.
