Excess Funds Information

What are Excess Funds?

Excess funds are any credit balance (funds remaining) on your student account after your tuition and fees have been paid. Funds are first applied to your tuition and fee charges. Any remaining funds (excess funds) are disbursed to you, the student.

How do I know if I'm getting excess funds?

Check the Account Center in the student portal. Once in the Account Center, go to My Finances > Account Information to view your Account Details. This will show your ledger card transactions. If there is an amount shown in parenthesis in the Balance column ($XXX.XX), meaning a negative amount, you have a credit balance on your account. This will be disbursed to you, the student. If there is an amount NOT in parenthesis in the Balance column, you do not currently have a credit balance on your account and will not receive excess funds until after there is a credit balance on your account.
