Will be processed after the add/drop period. We will begin processing excess Title IV refunds for spring on Jan. 9. If you have not already done so you have time to complete the direct deposit form (highly recommended) as the process to set this up takes a couple of weeks.

Credit/Debit Card Refunds

The University has a merchant agreement that enables us to accept debit/credit card payments at the law school. If payments to a student account are made via a credit/debit card and additional financial aid is received, we are bound by our merchant agreement to refund the debit/credit payments made within 180 days of the date the additional credit appeared on your account. Paying monthly rent or utilities are examples of credit/debit card payments.
