Through our recently updated Nelnet portal, you can now choose to have your refund directly deposited to your bank account. Your refund can be deposited in your designated bank account in about two days for most banks. If you choose to receive a check, it will be mailed to your permanent address. Refund checks can no longer be picked up in our office. Visit your payment portal and click on the Manage Refunds button to choose direct deposit.
Use our new drop box located in University Hall 018. Please make sure to include your full name and student ID number.
