Refund processing is managed by the Office of the Bursar. Once all aid funds have credited your account, if there is a credit balance remaining on your student account after all University charges have been paid, these funds will be reimbursed to the student after the start of the semester. If the refund is from a Direct Parent PLUS the refund will be processed according to the information provided by the parent in the Parent PLUS loan application.
Students are notified by email at their @radford.edu account when aid programs credit their student account. A second email notification is sent to the student when the refund has been processed by the Office of the Bursar.
Students may request to have any excess aid proceeds automatically deposited into their personal checking or savings accounts through direct deposit. Students must complete a direct deposit form and supply a voided check to the Office of the Bursar. Direct deposit forms can be completed online in OneCampus. You can search Direct Deposit in OneCampus to complete and submit the form. The Office of the Bursar requires 3-5 business days (based on the time of the academic year) to complete a direct deposit setup, so you should plan accordingly.
Students who do not sign up for direct deposit for excess aid proceeds into a personal checking or savings account will be issued a refund check for the excess funds. The Office of the Bursar will begin processing refund checks at the end of schedule adjustment. A refund check will be mailed to the student within two weeks of the funds being applied to their account.
For the full refund processing cycle please review the information provided by the Office of the Bursar.
