Student Account Refunds
When a student account has a credit balance created by an overpayment including from a disbursement of financial aid, a student is eligible for a refund.
If the credit balance is created from disbursed Federal funds such as Direct Loans, Direct Plus Loans, Pell Grants or a Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), the refund will be processed automatically. Requests to retain the credit balance on the student account must be sent to Student Accounts in writing.
Students whose PLUS loan applications indicated the refund should be issued to the parent borrower will have their refunds issued by check and made payable to the parent borrower.
Student Accounts processes refunds once a week and the Controller's Office distributes them on Mondays, either as a paper check or direct deposit. Checks and direct deposit statements are mailed to your campus mailbox unless otherwise directed. Direct Deposit is the College's recommended method to receive refunds.
For credit balances created by an overpayment from non-Federal funds including an outside scholarship, private loan, or regular payment a refund must be requested using the form provided below.
Direct Deposit Information
Direct Deposit forms can be obtained and submitted to Accounts Payable in the Controller’s Office in the Cartref Building.
OneCard/Campus Card Account
Overpayments on your student account, whether resulting from personal payments or from financial aid (grants or loans) can be transferred to your OneCard (Student ID Card/Campus Cash Account) to be used at areas designated by the OneCard Office for Bryn Mawr and Haverford College campuses.
To request a credit balance transfer, send a written request (email preferred) to Student Accounts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
