Your payments, including financial aid, may result in a credit balance if they exceed your charges for tuition and fees.  If you have a credit balance on your account after all charges have been paid in full, a refund check will automatically be issued to you by our office.  Refund checks are issued on or before 14 business days from the date a credit balance occurs.  The check is mailed to your permanent home address as maintained by the Registrar’s Office. 

If additional charges are posted to your account after you receive a refund check, you are responsible for making a payment to cover these charges.


If you are expecting a refund generated from financial aid, and your aid is not yet posted to your account, please contact the Financial Aid Office to ask about the status.  You can contact them at or 617-873-0440.
