A refund will be issued ONLY if there is a credit remaining after all payments, deposits and financial aid have been applied to the students account.  Course schedule and/or meal plan changes must be made by deadlines posted to meet refund eligibility requirements that may apply (see Important Dates). 

Before a refund is issued, a student may request to have excess funds transferred to their Osprey Card.  

In accordance with federal regulations, applicable refunds must be processed within 14 days after Financial Aid Disbursement. 

Term Financial Aid Disbursement
Refunds Issued (if applicable)
Fall 1st week of October within 14 days of disbursement (weekly after this date)
Spring 1st week of February within 14 days of disbursement (weekly after this date)

Refund checks will be made payable to the student, except PLUS Parent Loan refunds which will be made payable to the parent.  Refunds are sent regular mail through the US Post Office to the mailing address on the student's record and may take 7-10 days for delivery.  Students may update their mailing address from the Bursars/Payments tab in goStockton. 

Alternately, refunds can be electronically deposited into the student's bank account and available immediately.  The student must complete and submit the Student Refund Direct Deposit Disbursements Form to the Bursar's Office in CC-202. 

Note:  If you previously submitted a direct deposit form, DO NOT submit another form unless there is a change to your bank/account.  Account information initially submitted will remain on file for any future refunds, until changed.
