Financial Aid Refunds

  • If you will receive more financial aid than what you owe to Washburn, the difference will be refunded to you.
  • Refunds may be directly deposited into your bank account or picked up from the Business Office in the form of a check; see the availability schedules below. Valid picture ID must be presented when picking up a check.
  • Parent PLUS loan checks are mailed directly to the parent.
  • The first date each term that refunds will be available is as follows:
  Undergraduate and Graduate Law

2nd disbursement June 30, 2015 July 7, 2015
Note: Most summer financial aid will disburse in two parts. In addition, Summer aid will not disburse until the minimum hours requirement is met.

  • Upon request, the Business Office will mail refund checks instead of holding them for pickup
  • Unclaimed refund checks will be mailed after ten days to the current address we have on file for the student.
  • The Business Office reserves the right to refund excess financial aid to a credit card used to make a prepayment.
