Refund Process

Also see refunds for dropped classes.

For student accounts with a credit (negative) balance, the Bursar Office will
  1. Analyze the account.
  2. Pay any outstanding balances from the current academic year.
  3. Generate a refund.
Note: Students who owe a balance in a different academic year cannot use federal aid, such as Pell Grants and Stafford Loans, to pay those balances. Federal aid also cannot be used to pay late fees, parking fines or library fines in any academic year.
