Debit / Credit Card Refund Requests:

If you have signed up for eRefunds, you do not need to request a refund.

Please complete this form to request the refund of a credit balance on your Student (CRS) Account which is the result of overpayment using a debit/credit card, or of the combination of debit/credit card payments and any other transactions including loan advances. We will first refund your debit/credit card up to the amount you charged, and any remaining credit balance can then be refunded by check or ACH at your request.

Once you receive an email that your refund request has been APPROVED, the refund may take up to 10 business days for processing (due to the way banks handle debit/ credit card transactions).
