Will I be receiving a refund?
Students whose financial aid award more than covers the amount of their tuition and fees, housing and meal plan charges are eligible to receive a refund. To check the status of your account, login to your MyTSU account to review all charges, payments and balances


I have a negative balance, how do I get my refund?
If you have a credit balance on your student account, you can receive your refund in one of three ways.

  1. Students can receive their refund by having the funds direct deposited into a personal bank account or signing up for the TSU Tiger Card. Please visit to review the information about the direct deposit and Tiger Card options, and then click ‘Enroll Now’ to make your selection. Please note, students selecting the Tiger Card option, will receive the card 7-10 business days after making their selection.
  2. If you do not setup a direct deposit or sign up for the Tiger Card, a physical check will be cut and you will be advised as to how to pick up your check.
  3. The university’s preferred method of refunding financial aid overpayments is via direct deposit or the TSU Tiger Card.

How long does it take to receive my refund?
Refund processing begins after the 1st class day of each semester, and are processed on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the year. Once your account reflects a zero balance, you should expect to receive your refund within 3 business days for direct deposit and physical checks.

Can I change how I receive future refunds?
All changes to how you receive your financial aid overpayment can be made through the web page.
