Refund of Financial Aid Funds

Students who receive financial aid in excess of tuition and fees will receive a refund from Cheyney University. The Office of the Bursar automatically issues refunds for students that have a financial aid credit appearing on their student account, after tuition and fees have been paid. A REFUND WILL NOT BE ISSUED UNTIL THE FINANCIAL AID CREDIT APPEARS ON THE STUDENT ACCOUNT. For security purposes, refund information will not be given over the telephone. Students should check their accounts on PowerCAMPUS Self-Service. Once "student refund" is displayed the student can expect to receive a refund. Refunds checks not picked up within two weeks, are mailed to the billing address on record.
