The University holds your resident security deposit until you are no longer a resident student. Upon leaving campus residency or graduation, your security deposit will be applied to any outstanding balance on your student account. Any remaining amount will be refunded to you.
Pending financial aid typically disburses two and a half to three weeks after the semester begins. If the disbursement results in a credit balance, a refund will be issued within 14 days. The fastest way to receive your refund is to sign up for direct deposit via QuikPAY. Please note: Students whose PLUS loans applications indicate the refund should be issued to the parent borrower will have their refunds issued by check, made payable to the parent borrower.
Please plan that it will be approximately five weeks into the semester before credit balance refunds are issued. Due to the volume of refunds we are processing, we are unable to answer specific questions about when individual refunds will be issued. If you need to use your pending financial aid to purchase books, please contact the Student Accounts office to discuss a bookstore advance.
Please note that students and families who have a credit balance as result of the TMS budgeted payment plan, will not receive a credit balance refund until all TMS payments have been paid.
