Refund Process

Refunds for Academic Credit Courses

To receive a tuition refund, students must drop courses during the 100% refund period listed in the Registration Guide and on Ocelot Access. The refund period begins with the course start date, not the date the student registered for the course. The refund period is not extended for students who register late into courses.

Refunds are processed based on your original method of payment. Payments made with a credit/debit card are refunded first. Any remaining refunds (including all payment plan payments) are processed and refunded via direct deposit or check.
Refunds are processed on Fridays. All checks are mailed. Students are not able to pick up refund checks. For faster refunds you can sign up for direct deposit via Ocelot Access.  Refunds can take up to 10 business days to process, from the most recent date of the credit appearing.

Financial aid refunds are processed once aid is paid and a student account credit balance exists. Refunds are disbursed approximately 4 weeks after the start of the semester. Questions about Financial Aid disbursements and refunds should be directed to Financial Aid.
