Billing Statements

Pacific processes billing statements electronically on a monthly basis. The electronic bill will reflect charges and credits applied to a student's account as of the date the bill was created. Students and Authorized Users will receive an email notification when their statement is ready for viewing. 

Requesting a Refund

When a student account has a credit balance where payments and credits exceed the total amount due, the student will receive a refund upon request. Students may request refunds by email, over the phone, or in-person. Refunds are issued on a weekly basis. 

Refunds will NOT be granted based on "anticipated" aid. All financial aid must be disbursed on the student's account before a refund is processed.

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is the fastest most secure way to receive a refund. Refunds will be directly deposited into the checking or savings account and financial institution of choice without having to wait for the check to arrive in the mail.

To set up a direct deposit, students must turn in a completed direct deposit form (pdf) to Student Accounts. Refunds to third parties, including parents, are not eligible for Direct Deposit. 

Once Direct Deposit is set up, students will need to contact Student Accounts to request their refund.

Refunds by Mail

Title IV Authorization to Release Non-Institutional Charges

As defined by the U.S. Department of Education, federal student financial aid can only cover institutional charges. This definition includes current year charges for tuition and fees, and off-campus housing. 

Unless authorization is received, federal financial aid CANNOT be used to cover non-institutional charges such as:

  • Health insurance
  • Returned check fees
  • Any fees not directly related to taking a class

The only way federal student aid funds can be used to pay for non-institutional charges is to obtain written authorization

Title IV funds include Grad Plus, and, Stafford Loan (Subsidized and Unsubsidized)

Protect Your Education Investment with the Tuition Protection Insurance Plan

Each year, thousands of students nationwide face the difficult decision of whether to withdraw when something unexpected happens. Many get only a partial refund of tuition and fees. Some get nothing.

The Tuition Protection Plan was designed with students and their families in mind. It can reimburse tuition payments, room and board fees and other non-refundable college expenses if a student needs to withdraw any time during the semester for any covered reason such as illness, injury, or psychological condition.
