Forms of Refunds

Refunds are processed in one of two ways:

  1. Via Direct Deposit (Highly Recommended)
  2. In the form of a check that is mailed to the student's current mailing address

Students are strongly encouraged to establish direct deposit for their Financial Aid or Student Account Services refunds. Direct Deposit prevents delays due to lost checks or change of address. All refunds from students' accounts can be direct deposited to any U.S. bank. Funds are usually available within 24-48 hours after disbursement, and enrollment only takes a few minutes. To enroll, sign in at my.ucf.edu and click Student Self Service. Click Student Accounts, and then click Direct Deposit and follow the instructions.
