Beginning Fall 2008, students may sign up to receive their refunds through direct deposit to their bank account.  To sign up, go to the Student Center in Wavenet and click on the "eRefund enrollment and maintenance" link in the Finances section. If a student does not sign up for direct deposit, a check for the refund will be mailed to the student's local address.

Financial aid in excess of tuition and fees is refunded to the student after the add/drop period each term.
