Students may request a refund for other credit balances at anytime. All refunds are subject to the Bursar's approval. There are no refunds of fees once the semester has begun.
Students have the option to sign up for direct deposit of their student refund. They may do so through their my.sbu — under Student Service tab. All university rules and regulations apply — the bursar approves all refunds.
Any excess credit from the payment plan over St. Bonaventure’s cost will not be refunded until the payment plan has been paid in full. Please call the Business Office to discuss the over-payment and ways to adjust the contract so you are not waiting for a refund.
Refunds are issued by check on a weekly basis and mailed to the address on file. If you would like your check payable to someone other than the student or mailed to another address, the student will need to inform the Business Office in writing. Requests taken in person from the student will supersede a previous request.
Refunds requested for pickup are available at the Business Office from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Thursday and from 2 to 4 p.m. on Fridays.
