Credit Balance Refund Schedules

Direct deposit refunds are processed daily Monday through Friday (except during UC holidays) and refunds via credit card are processed once a week. Paper check refunds are posted on Thursday and mailed the following Monday or next business day.  If you choose to not enroll in direct deposit, please ensure your mailing address is correct under the "My Profile" tile in Catalyst. Please note, stop payment requests will only be considered once it has been 30 days after the mailing date of the check.  There is also a $25 Stop Payment Fee charged for each check stopped.

In all cases below, refunds of personal payments (cash, check, or credit cards) and other personal payments like 529 payments are processed after the drop/add period, which is the 15th day of the term effective Summer Semester 2019.  All personal payments are held for 14 days, after the payment posted to the account, before being refunded.

PLEASE NOTE: The dates below reflect traditional term start dates. If your first class doesn't begin on the start date noted below then your loans cannot be disbursed until at least 10 days before that date. Please plan accordingly.
