» Refund

If a student receives more in financial aid than is necessary to pay their account charges and all of the aid has arrived, then the student may be eligible to a refund.

How Does A Student Request A Refund?

A student may email a refund request to their assigned Student Account Advisor from their Chapman email account.

What Are The Refund Options?    

  1. eRefund (Direct Deposit): Students can create an eRefund account, so refunds can be disbursed into their personal bank account.
  2. A paper check mailed to the student's address.

Option 1: eRefunds (Direct Deposit)

Avoid having to make an extra trip to the bank to deposit your refund check. Submit a refund request today and the funds will have been electronically deposited to your designated checking or savings account within 24 to 48 hours. 

Secure - Direct deposit is added protection against theft or time delays from lost checks.

Convenient - Chapman University will deposit your refund directly into your bank account and send you a notification of the deposit to you via email.

Set up Your Student eRefund Account via the ePay site.

Option 2: Paper Check Refunds 

If you request a refund as a paper check, please note that Chapman University only prints checks once a week (Wednesdays).  In your emailed request, please provide your current mailing address.

Parent PLUS Loan Refunds

Parent PLUS Direct Loans will be applied to your student's outstanding balance. If the posting results in an overpayment, a refund can be issued to the parent upon emailed request to your student's account advisor.  Please include the student's name, student's id number, and your preferred refund option:

Parent PLUS Direct Loan refunds are issued to the borrower of the loan.

If a parent would like to request that excess Parent PLUS Direct Loan funds be released to their student, a Parent Plus Loan Release Authorization form would need to be completed by the borrower and emailed to the student's account advisor.
