There are many reasons why a student might be eligible for a refund. If you have questions or believe you should have a refund please call us at (907) 796-6267 or you may email us at email@example.com.
Financial Aid Refund
Refunds to students for Financial Aid are generated after the aid is received and all charges have been paid. Refunds for payments made on a student account should be requested by notifying Student Accounts at (907) 796-6267. Refunds can take up to two weeks to process after being requested, and are not available for pickup until the first day of class for any specific term.
All approved Financial Aid/Scholarship information is reflected on the billing statements. If you are awarded additional scholarships after the billing statements are e-mailed out, you should contact the Student Accounts Office to request a new bill. If you are a sponsored student and your tuition or fees will be paid by an independent third party or University Department, please contact Elenoa Lehauli at (907) 796-6492.
