Students are eligible to receive a financial aid refund when their aid exceeds the charges on their university bill.

Direct deposit is the fastest and most secure way to receive your refund. Direct deposit refunds typically take 2-3 days to appear in your account. To sign up for direct deposit, you will need to enter the routing and account number of the bank account you would like the funds to be put into in KSIS. Please note: Previously entered banking information used for payment purposes (ACH) is not stored for Direct Deposit use. Sign up is separate. Sign up for direct deposit.

Direct deposit is also available to parents eligible to receive a Parent Plus Loan refund.

If direct deposit information is not provided, a paper check refund will be mailed to the student's local address in KSIS. Update your address in KSIS.

Refunds and Late Fees

Title IV aid will not pay default charges (aka late fees) such as late enrollment, student collection fees, uncollectible check fees, ESL late fees, etc. The Department of Education will allow federal student aid to pay late fees on library or parking fines, as these are fines related to a student's Cost of Attendance.

Should you receive a refund and still owe a balance, these are likely charges that federal aid is no longer permitted to pay.
