When can I expect my financial aid refund, and how is this refund calculated?

Students can generally expect their refund during the first week of classes for their college. The refund is calculated by deducting any Tuition, Fees, or Room and Board charges assessed, and refunded anything in excess of those costs.

* Note: Some scholarship awards are specifically designated to be applied toward certain costs, and any remaining funds may be returned to the sponsor, rather than to the student directly. Students can expedite their refund by authorizing direct deposit through MyUI, under the Financial Aid & Billing link.
