Refund Types

All students initially are set to receive a paper check refund. Students also have the option of using direct deposit, which may be set up through the Student Account Center.

Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is the fastest refund choice available. Once the refund email has been received, students should expect their refund in their account within 1-2 business days.

Paper Check

Paper checks are mailed to your permanent mailing address listing in Banner Web. All paper checks are mailed from Chicago, IL and are estimated to be delivered to the student's home address within 7-10 business days.

Special Note on Parent Plus Loans

A student account with a credit after disbursement that received a Parent Plus Loan (PPL) will be refunded to the parent unless otherwise requested during the application process. Currently, all PPL refunds to the parent are sent as paper checks.
