Augsburg students may be eligible to receive a credit refund if their financial aid exceeds tuition and fee charges for a term. Credit Refunds are issued within two weeks after the last day to drop courses without recorded notation. All aid needs to be finalized (you can verify your financial aid status online through Track Your Financial Aid) and applied to a student’s account (check your Transaction History online to verify all of your financial aid has been applied to your account and nothing is left pending) before the Credit Refund can be issued. You may sign up for eRefund and have your Credit Refund directly deposited into a checking or saving account.
Changes in enrollment status, housing status, and program status may affect financial aid eligibility and credit refund amounts. Students who are enrolled less than half-time (less than 6.0 credits for undergraduates, less than 3.0 credit for graduates) may not be eligible for financial aid; however, students may apply for private alternative loans. Registration changes made from the first week of the term through midterm may require a return of financial aid funds. Students who drop courses may receive a tuition refund, but some forms of financial aid may have to be adjusted before a refund will be available. Financial aid return of funds may take up to 45 days to be processed.
Please note that any new charges or aid adjustments that are applied to your account after your credit refund has been issued are your responsibility to pay.
