Direct Deposit of Student Account Refunds

When a student account has a credit balance where payments and credits exceed total charges due, a credit balance of the excess monies is available for refund. Students are required to enroll in direct deposit through PeopleSoft Self Service to receive student account credit balance refunds into the United States financial institution of choice.

In the event it becomes necessary to revoke direct deposit enrollment, please send a request from your clarkson.edu e-mail to the attention of sfrefunds@clarkson.edu

Please allow for 10-14 business days for direct deposit enrollment authorization. If a refund is requested prior to authorization, a one-time paper check will be processed.

Be advised that depending on your bank’s policy and the timing of your refund request, it may take up to 2 business days from the time of processing for availability of funds in your account.
