Student Refund Schedule
The Student Accounts Office begins processing refunds 5 days prior to the first day of classes to students with a full-time registration status (12 credits Undergraduate/Post Baccalaureate) *. Students expecting a refundMUST complete all Financial Aid requirements and confirm their bill by the confirmation deadline for the applicable semester. Holds on your account may stop a refund from being processed.
*Students registered for fewer than 12 credits: Refunds will be processed after the 3rd class day. If you do not intend to add additional credits please contact the Student Accounts Office at 406.994.1991 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request your refund.
To check your confirmation status, login to MyInfo (www.montana.edu/myinfo) and select Electronic Billing and Payment. If you have an estimated refund on your Web bill you must confirm your bill by clicking on the Confirm My Bill link at the bottom of the page. Remember to check View Holds and Financial Aid pages for any unsatisfied requirements.
Refunds will be processed Monday, Wednesday and Friday for students who elect Direct Deposit. Please allow 3-4 days after processing for funds to be deposited in your bank account. Paper checks will be processed on Thursdays and mailed 1-2 business days after processing. Checks CANNOT be picked up in person.
Students are encouraged to sign up for Direct Deposit for safer and faster refunds.
