Credit & Loans

Credit Balances

Credit balances from anything other than federal aid will only be refunded upon request or at the end of the semester. Please send your request to busoff@regent.edu or call 757.352.4059.  Refunds of payments from personal checks will be subject to a 10 business day hold or until notification is provided that the funds have cleared your bank. Credits from Third Party payments can only be released to the student with permission from the Third Party.

Loan Refunds

If the posting of all federal aid (federal grants and loans) exceed charges posted to the student’s account, the resulting credit balance will automatically be issued as a refund if the following condition is met:

  • The student has a current permanent address set up in Genisys. (Please verify the address does not have an expired “end date.”)

Parent PLUS Loan refunds will be issued to the student or parent borrower as selected on the Parent PLUS Request Form. Parent borrowers can now also receive their refund through direct deposit by completing the Direct Deposit Form online.

Direct Deposit

Receive your refund by direct deposit — sign up through Genisys.

To set up direct deposit from the Genisys Main Menu, select the following links:

  • Click on the “Student Services & Financial Aid” tab
  • Student Records
  • Direct Deposit Information

Checks

Paper Checks

Refunds for students not enrolled in Direct Deposit will be mailed twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays through the US Postal Service to the permanent address listed in Genisys. Refund checks are not available for pick up in the Business Office. Due to the volume of refunds produced, we are unable to accommodate any exceptions.

Uncashed Refund Checks and Resissues

Refund checks should be cashed promptly. Checks over 90 days old are considered stale dated and may be voided. Students who are Federal Title IV Recipients are subject to Federal regulations which require the University to return uncashed refund checks to the federal program which generated the refund. Once these funds are returned to the lender, the University cannot request them back.

Stale-dated checks resulting from sources other than Federal Title IV funds can be reissued upon request to the Business Office. Please note that a reissue fee of $20.00 applies. Students that request a reissue on a refund check may have the reissue fee waived if they enroll in direct deposit.
