A credit balance remaining after all University obligations have been met, which results from state or federal financial aid, grants, or loans, will be refunded within 14 days. When a Federal PLUS Loan creates a credit balance on a student's account, this refund will be payable to the borrower. All other refunds will be payable to the student.
Students may request a refund for other credit balances at anytime. All refunds are subject to the Bursar's approval. There are no refunds of fees once the semester has begun.
Students have the option to sign up for direct deposit of their student refund. They may do so through their my.sbu - under Student Service tab. All University rules and regulations apply - the Bursar approves all refunds.
Refunds are issued by check on a weekly basis and mailed to the address on file. If you would like your check payable to someone other than the student or mailed to another address, the student will need to inform the Business Office in writing. Requests taken in person from the student will supersede a previous request. Refunds requested for pickup are available at the Business Office Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Fridays from 2 to 4 p.m.
