Undergraduate Student Account Balance Refund

Under state and federal regulations, educational expenses such as tuition and fees are to be covered prior to the release of any credit refund from loan proceeds. Therefore, if there is a balance due on your student account, all loan proceeds must be credited to your account.

Please be aware that beginning with the fall 2013 semester, the undergraduate refund process is automated. Students must be officially enrolled in courses and have a refundable credit balance after all tuition and fees have processed, but students will no longer need to complete a refund request form. Student Accounts will begin processing spring 2014 undergraduate refunds beginning January 17. Please understand that all refunds will be mailed to the address on file on YES (campus, mailing, and home - in that order), so please make sure your address is accurate. No refund checks will be held for pick-up.

If your parent received monies from a Federal Direct Parent Loan (PLUS) and you have no other financial aid, the refund check will be made payable to the parent who initiated the loan and the refund will be mailed to the address indicated on the loan application.

If you prefer to have your credit balance retained in your student account, please email Student Accounts at student.accounts@vanderbilt.edu.

For students who are utilizing the Sallie Mae interest-free payment plan, all payments must be received for the semester before a refund check will be issued. Refunds will be processed for the fall semester after October 15, 2013.

Please note that charges applies to your student account after a refund has processed will need to be paid in the monthly billed in order to avoid late payment fees.

If you need to replace a lost, destroyed, or stale-dated refund check please complete the Replace Lost Check form.
