Student Account Refunds
When a student account has a credit balance created by an over-payment and/or disbursement of financial aid, a student is eligible for a refund. If the overage resulted from disbursed Federal funds such as Direct Stafford Loans, Direct Plus Loans, Perkins Loans, Pell Grants or a Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), the refund will be routinely processed. 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, made payable to the parent borrower.
Students and families who have a credit balance as a result of the Monthly Payment Plan will not receive a credit balance refund until all monthly payments have been paid.
Student Accounts processes refunds once a week, and the Controller's Office distributes them on Mondays, either as a paper check or direct deposit to a checking or savings account. 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.
Direct Deposit and Refund Request Forms
•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.
