Student Accounting

Refund Disbursements

Refund disbursements are made payable to the student, not the parent. If there is a Payment Plan contract setup on the account, any credit balance will not be refunded until the contract is paid in full. At that time, a refund disbursement will be made payable to the student.

Title IV funds are federally regulated and prevent Washington University from automatically deducting any fees, other than tuition, health insurance, room and board charges, from your federal loan check without your prior written consent. If you want the University to deduct any prior balances or miscellaneous charges posted to your student account before your refund is calculated, you must sign a Title IV Authorization Form.
