Student Refunds

The first refund date of each semester will be no later than 14 days after the first day of class.
Following that, student refunds are processed approximately once every week throughout the academic year.

  • Non-financial aid refunds will begin the 3rd week of the semester. 
  • Students will be notified their account balance has changed when a refund has been processed.
  • If payment was made by personal check, a refund will be issued after the check clears the bank.

Students suspended for disciplinary reasons are not eligible for a refund.

The U.S. Department of Education requires the University to refund to the borrower any overpayment of fees paid by Federal Student Aid funds. If desired, students may return the refund check to the University to pay future fees. Students wishing to return refunds to pay back federal loans should contact the Office of Financial Aid (finaid@uah.edu) for guidelines.

Student refunds are credited back in two ways

  1. Direct Deposit

    A direct deposit option is available for students who wish to have refunds directly deposited to their bank account. For any student to participate in our Direct Deposit option, that student must have a personal checking account in their name. To sign up for direct deposit, complete and submit the Direct Deposit Form.
  2. Direct Deposit Form

  3. Physical Checks

    A paper check is created for students who do not have direct deposit. Checks are mailed to the address on file in Banner, so please make sure the office has the most current mailing (MA) address. More information on how to update a mailing address can be found on our page.

Checks must be out of the office for 14 days before a stop payment can be placed on them to be re-issued. 

Refunds of Credit and Debit Card Payments

Upon student request, refunds due as a result of over-payment may be returned a credit/debit card for up to
the exact amount that was charged to that card. Any credit balance remaining will be issued to the student by check or Direct Deposit.

Refunding Employer Payments

If an employer paid the student’s tuition, please have them email bursar@uah.edu with the
Student ID number and the amount charged to ensure the refund is properly issued.
