Your financial aid award(s) must actually be completed and credited to your account (not estimated awards), and you must have a credit balance in your account after fees have been satisfied for the semester before receiving a refund of excess aid. See the Bursar's Office Calendar for disbursement dates.
Excess financial aid/scholarships for Spring 2015 will be direct deposited to your bank account beginning January 16, 2015 (Law School - January 6, 2015) and daily thereafter through the end of the semester for financial aid/scholarship awards that are disbursed after the initial eRefund noted above.
It is important that you sign up for eRefund on TigerXpress by January 12, 2015 (Law School - January 1, 2015).
If you receive financial aid/scholarship award amounts in excess of fees, you need to sign up online on TigerXpress to have your refund deposited directly to your bank account. Note that direct deposit authorization submitted to the Payroll Office is separate from direct deposit authorization for financial aid/scholarship disbursement.
If you do NOT sign up for eRefund, check refunds will be mailed beginning January 23, 2015 (Law School - January 12, 2015), and every Friday thereafter through the end of the semester for financial aid/scholarship awards that are disbursed after the initial mailing noted above.
NOTE: For students who do not receive their refund checks in a timely manner, a stop payment (initiated through the Bursar's Office) cannot be processed until 2 weeks from the mail date of the check. The stop payment, re-issuance, and mailing of the replacement check takes approximately 10 days. It is recommended that you sign up for direct deposit to avoid this possible 3-4 week delay.
eRefunds is the fastest way to receive your excess financial aid/scholarship funds!
NOTE: First Time Borrowers must have completed an entrance interview and master promissory note in order for your funds to be disbursed to your student account and any excess to be refunded to you. For additional information, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
