Enroll in eRefund Today!!

If you want to get your student financial aid refund as quickly as possible, enroll in eRefund today! By using eRefund you can get your money up to a week sooner than if you choose to receive a paper check.

Here are the benefits of using eRefund:

Convenience – Your money goes directly to your bank account. You won’t have to stand in line to pick up your check or wait for it to arrive in the mail and then stand in line at the bank to cash it.

Options – You can choose to have your refund deposited into your checking or savings account or your parent’s account.

Security – Direct deposit eliminates the possibility that your check will be lost in the mail or stolen. Every year we have refund checks returned to us by the U. S. Postal Service marked as undeliverable.
