Financial aid for the spring 2021 term will be disbursed to student accounts beginning Jan. 27, 2021, and refunds will be posted beginning Jan. 28, 2021. Please do not call the Cashier’s Office to inquire about your refund amount as we cannot give that information over the phone. If your financial aid is refundable and you have a credit balance on your account, you will be refunded. In order to receive your refund within two to four business days of the refund being posted to your UAFS student account, please set up direct deposit by Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021, by following the instructions below. If you currently do not have a bank checking or savings account, please feel free to select any bank of your choice to open an account to be used for direct deposit.
We recommend that all students set up direct deposit. Even if you do not have financial aid, you could receive a refund for several reasons (i.e., dropping a class you already paid for, cancellation of a class you already paid for, overpayment, receiving an award, etc.). If direct deposit is set up, you can receive your funds in as little as two business days from the time the refund is posted to your student account and usually not more than four business days. Refunds sent by paper check are only processed once per week and take additional time to prepare for mailing. Postal delivery can never be predicted.
