Refund Process

All student refunds are handled by the University Controllers Office. Please note that refunds will be made available to students on the Friday following their disbursement date. That means you will see your eligible refund in CUNYfirst a few days before it will actually be posted to our CUNY Scholars Support Card, bank account or mailed as a paper check. The Office of Financial Aid strongly recommends that you sign up for an electronic method of disbursement. It is more secure and efficient. For instructions on how to sign up, please review Your Guide to Managing Your Financial Aid (pdf)Financial aid payment information and dates will be emailed and also made available on your CUNYfirst account under the finance tab.
