Setup Refund Preference

After financial aid, stipends, external payments or military benefits are applied to the student’s account, residual aid may be left on the account. This overage will be noted with a minus (-) sign prior to the generating of a refund to the student. When the refund is generated, the student will note a “refund” on the student account with an equivalent positive amount.
