NOTE: Regardless of the method chosen for your student refund, the first refunds in any given semester will be issued approximately 48 days after the semester begins.
Any subsequent refunds due to you, the student, within that semester will be processed approximately every 14 days.
If a student chooses to “opt out” of the bookstore credit, then the student needs to complete the “Request to Opt-Out of Bookstore Credit” form located at the Cashier’s window of the Business Office one week before the start of the semester. These authorizations will be in effect as long as they are active in Banner.
Note: the “opt out” option does NOT allow you to receive your financial aid refund early. The first set of refunds of any given semester are sent to students approximately 48 days after the semester begins.
